When it was reported that Democrats in Minnesota mysteriouly discovered hundreds of votes for senate candidate Al Franken (D) in a handful of precints some folks said it was just a coincidence.
Well, what about these "coincidences?"
Here are examples of ballots for the incumbent Norm Coleman(R) that the Franken campaign is challenging in the hand recount that is underway (full recount results here):
Frankenstein's campaign claims the erasure mark over the Al Franken oval is an indication the voter intended to select Franken, even though the oval for the Independent candidate is clearly filled in.
Now you Know Why Dems Hate Electronic Voting Machines!
As of Thursday, Franken's campaign has challenged 374 ballots and Coleman has challenged 360. And yet, Coleman's lead keeps shrining. It's gone from over 200 votes prior to the recount to 136 with more than half the state yet to complete the manual process.
At that point, the contested ballots will be sent to a canvassing board where the final determination will be made.
Clearly, none of these shenanigans would be possible if electronic voting machines were used where it was only possible to vote for a candidate, do a write in, or leave the vote for that race blank. Yet Democrats have conducted an organized effort to eliminate such machines.
Democrats have also conducted an organized campaign in key states like Minnesota to elect Secretaries of State who are sympathetic to seeing that the votes get counted their way. Big money men like George Soros have poured millions into efforts like the Secretary of State (S.O.S.) Project and it's paying big dividends in Minnesota as it did earlier in Ohio and elsewhere.
