Details are just coming in now.
They are suing regarding: the missing ballots from Minneapoilis (that won’t go anywhere, already settled); Double counting (that issue was killed off already, it will go no where) and absentee ballots (they have a small chance that this may develop into something).
They state that they will win in state court but have federal level issues to argue as well.
The won’t and the don’t. But it looks like they will continue to press.
We are being told that several Coleman lawyers are not being dispersed around the state to depose, under oath, election officials.
They are opposing several of the decisions made by the canvassing board such as the afore mentioned … missing ballots of Minneapolis.
Ana will be commenting below, I hope, on the missing ballots in Minneapolis.
They are talking about pre-trial phases, they are talking about a thee week period leading up to the trial, they are talking about a couple of months of proceedings.
Now they are threatening the Chief Justice … who was on the canvassing board. They want him off the State Supreme Court for this proceeding.
They are not making veiled threats to force a new recount.
Clearly, they are pulling out all stops and are not going to let this rest. This is the beginning of the Big Mess. The Republicans have decided that they are not going to allow the winner go to Washington no matter what it takes.
Time to start raising money for the Franken team again.
