I first warned readers about Democrat attempts to steal the senate seat of Norm Coleman (R-MN) on November 11th. Coleman had won the election a week earlier by a several hundred votes and there was every indication that subsequent recounts being conducted by the Secretary of State George Soros's group hand picked for the job (warning: they are doing the same thing in other key states) would continue to use every technicality and twist of law to overturn the result and give the election to the idiot Al Franken.
But with the brouhaha over the alleged sale of Barack Obama's senate seat to the highest bidder in Illinois I admit I took my eye off the ball. That was a mistake! As Gomer Pyle used to say: "Surprise, surprise, surprise!" Democrats have now taken a narrow but steady lead for Coleman and turned it into a lead for Franken.
Track the latest recount update with this widget from the Minnesota Star Tribune:
How is this possible? Simple. In the last week nearly every dispute has been settled in favor of Al Franken. Even when hand recounts showed the vote in a particular precinct favoring Coleman, the Democrats insisted that the election night electronic tally be used. The same electronic tally that they reject in precincts favoring Coleman. Ballots mysteriously went missing in some precincts and were found in others. All seemed to favor Franken. And the issue of questionable absentee ballots which many thought was settled has now been reopened by the state Supreme Court.
In at least one precinct the number of ballots discovered exceeds the number of voters who signed in to vote. But who cares?
Ann Coulter describes one curious set of circumstances:
The day after the November election, Republican Sen. Norm Coleman had won his re-election to the U.S. Senate, beating challenger Al Franken by 725 votes.Keep an eye on the vote tracking widget above. In the last few hours it's showed a miraculous and steady lead for Franken. After weeks and weeks showing Coleman ahead, it must seem like the Christmas miracle. Even to liberals who don't believe in miracles!
Then one heavily Democratic town miraculously discovered 100 missing ballots. And, in another marvel, they were all for Al Franken! It was like a completely evil version of a Christmas miracle.
As strange as it was that all 100 post-election, "discovered" ballots would be for one candidate, it was even stranger that the official time stamp for the miracle ballots printed out by the voting machine on the miracle ballots showed that the votes had been cast on Nov. 2 -- two days before the election.
Democratic election officials in the miracle-ballot county simply announced that their voting machine must have been broken. Don't worry about it -- they were sure those 100 votes for Franken were legit.
