Franken's Attention Turning to Absentee Ballots

Promoted from the diaries by Erick.

I’ve been tracking the Coleman-Franken recount for a week now. My latest post focuses on Franken turning his attention to the rejected absentee ballots. He’s doing that because Sen. Coleman’s lead has grown through the recount. Franken can’t defeat Sen. Coleman without judicial intervention.

I said here that “ballots will decide this election, not partisans.

I’ll be liveblogging this morning’s Canvassing Board’s hearing where they’ll vote on whether they’ll rule on the absentee ballots or if that will be something for the courts to decide.
