More Disturbing Trends in Minnesota US Senate Election
November 10, 2008
FOX News-MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL-Minnesota is know what is the equivalent of Florida as now Norm Coleman is still the winner, but Al Franken demands a re-count. However, FOX News revealed disturbing trends in how the elections were administered raising the question of possible suppression and fraud in Minnesota.
Undervotes, Clerical Burdens Are the Big Issue
The Minneapolis Star Tribune confirmed with FOX News that the undervotes recorded in some Minnesota precincts were attributed to “exhausted county officials,” and that indeed might be true, but a small error can play a large impact.
It was reported that despite no recount happened elections officials are correcting claimed typos in how the numbers were reported. Counties will certify their results today, and their final results will be sent to the secretary of state by Friday. The actual recount won’t even start until November 19. This is shocking as Colemans lead has shrunk from 700 votes to 221 votes from Election Night to Sunday.
