Franken Campaign and the Absentee Ballots

On the eve of a key State Canvassing Board meeting on the U.S. Senate race, Democrat Al Franken presented affidavits today from 62 Minnesotans who said their absentee ballots were improperly rejected.

With Franken behind in the official Senate recount, the affidavits were the latest attempt by the campaign to increase the pressure on the board to count absentee ballots that were improperly rejected. The affidavits followed the release of a web video Wednesday by the campaign that portrayed the stories of seven Minnesotans whose ballots were improperly rejected. A campaign spokesman said the video had been viewed more than 13,000 times on YouTube in less than 24 hours.


The Coleman campaign reports that they are mad at the Franken campaign for doing this.

    Does the Coleman campaign also report that they’re a bunch of whiny children? I mean, I certainly hope they’re telling the whole story.
