Minnesota’s Challenged Ballots

The Minneapolis Star Tribune has put up a website with PDFs of a lot of the challenged ballots in the Coleman-Franken race. It just points out the kind of stupid games being played by both sides. Both sides have challenged ballots that were clearly cast for the other side. Take a look at this ballot, which was clearly cast for Franken and challenged by the Coleman camp. Then take a look at this ballot, which was clearly cast for Coleman and was challenged by the Franken camp.

I went through the first few dozen of them and didn’t find a single one that wasn’t absolutely clear in who the vote was for. And just think, both sides withdrew hundreds of challenges they had already made. Those challenges must have been even less supportable than these ones are.
