Just Curious – Coleman Franken Recount Question
I sent a note to someone this week asking a question about the Coleman – Franken recount and never heard back, so I am going to throw it out to the RF readership.
In the saga of the recount, wasn’t it only when Secretary of State Mark Ritchie (ACORN) allowed the Canvassing board to add in previously rejected absentee ballots, that Al Franekn took a lead? Before that, Sen. Coleman had been ahead n the count of the actual ballots cast and counted on election night, if my memory serves.
It is an important point and I’d like some help in clarifying it.
It matters because the absentee ballots were not uniformly reviewed and sure seem to be unequally scrutinized by campaign workers, volunteers, and lawyers. It wasn’t something that was done in a way that every single ballot was treated equally, as Federal law requires. It also exposes how Mark Ritchie did in fact abuse his power to help a pal and steal this election.
If anyone can help correct my memory that would be great.
