"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

Minnesota Recount over, errrr NOT!

Well, the recounting is over, if you're a State Elections official. However, there are a lot of remaining undetermined ballots.

At the conclusion of the recount, the MN SECSTATE office shows Coleman with 687 vote margin compared to the 710 margin after election day. Once disputed precincts are included projections range from a Coleman 215 vote lead (Star Tribune) to a 4 vote Franken lead (Franken campaign).

Outstanding issues that challenge Coleman's lead:
  • 133 unaccounted Minneapolis ballots
  • 6,665 challenged ballots by the 2 campaigns
  • 1,000 absentee ballots that the Franken campaign claims were inappropriately rejected

The saga continues.

Signing off...JCB
