Why Franken Stands a Chance

Can anyone look at the above ballot and say it is not a vote for Coleman? The canvassing board did. Apparently they did not pick this week to stop sniffing glue.

You can page through the disputed ballots here. It looks like Minnesota Democrats don't care how they win.

How to Do Fraud:
You can vote on the disputed ballots on the Star Tribune site. See the line above titled "All Ballot Challenge voters"? That is result of the Star Tribune readers poll. It looks like their readers have been pretty fair so far.
The canvassing board has differed with the readers 24 times in the 159 ballots from 12/16/2008. Of those: 19 differed in Franken's favor, 5 differed in Coleman's favor. Continue that kind of fraud (well look at the damn things, it's fraud) over 6,600 ballots and you can steal an election. (and really steal it, not like that silly Ohio challenge, or the hanging chad imbroglio in Florida)

in Coleman's favor: ballots # 33, 50, 122, 125, 148
in Franken's favor: ballots # 3, 10, 18, 25, 26, 28, 37, 40, 45, 55, 66, 79, 83, 100, 112, 113, 123, 131, 159
