Not-So-Funny Business in Minnesota

Are the Democrats trying to steal a senate seat for Al "The Joker" Franken?

Maybe. Because he's smart enough, he's angry enough and gosh darn it, almost half the voters like him, but not quite enough.

With their underhanded, fraudulent and illegal acts during this election Liberals have destroyed democracy in the U.S.
Obama's presidency is illegitimate and has only been permitted because he is black.

The precinct election boards have both Dems and Reps checking the numbers. The "100" mentioned in the article (of course, without context and explanation) was a 124 for Franken that was called in, but got written down as a 24. Seems like someone should be investigating the person that wrote down 24 by mistake and would have disenfranchised 100 Franken voters.

Minnesota uses optical ballots. Many first-time voters (and even experienced voters) don't fill in the ovals completely. Some people get confused by the ballots and put an X next to their candidate or circle the candidate. In both cases, their choice is clear, but would not get picked up by the optical scanner. Also, the scanners pick up paper dust and many have an error rate of dropping 2 out of every 1000 votes even when everything is filled out properly by the voter.

This error rate is more than large enough to require a manual recount in such a close election.

If this was in Delco, the GOP would be sitting there with hidden pencils filling in ovals for their candidates.

Grasp on, DDD. The error rate in inconsistent with the common error rate elsewhere. And it only came from a couple of Lib districts. There is underhanded Libism a foot. –Like that’s anything new, particularly in this election.

DDD sees the childish Angry Liberalism Fraken espouses as intellectual gold. And he will say anything to defend all this lying and conniving. Like this lying slander completely devoid of any factual basis. The old “They do it to!” schoolyard defense, although untrue:

If this was in Delco, the GOP would be sitting there with hidden pencils filling in ovals for their candidates.

The Left is guilty of so much fraud in this election that it would be reasonable for the Supreme Court to step in and overturn the whole mess and give McCain the win.

Obama’s presidency will forever be tainted as illegitimate and illegal, much worse than Florida 2000 because the Obama/ LibDem wins were the result of calculated fraud.
