Norm Coleman is afraid of YOUR vote. Especially if you filed an absentee ballot:
Republican Sen. Norm Coleman filed an injunction to stop the opening and counting of 32 absentee ballots in Minneapolis, according to a copy of the court documents filed today provided to the Pioneer Press by Democrat Al Franken’s campaign….
…The Franken campaign officials said Saturday that Coleman officials are trying to “deprive Minnesota voters of their civil rights.”
Andy Barr, Franken’s communications director, said in a statement: “Ever since the routine process of canvassing to ensure that every vote is counted began, the Coleman campaign has been attempting to obstruct it. And, in typical fashion, they have now gone to court to shut down the count. This stealth attack on an early Saturday morning is a disgusting attempt to disenfranchise voters who did nothing wrong, and we will fight hard on behalf of Minnesotans who deserve to have their voices heard.”
