MN Senate race - Franken sues county seeking counting of misplaced absentees
Al Franken is suing Olmstead County seeking to make them count 27 absentee ballots that were never rejected but were accidentally placed in the rejected pile. The campaign claims that these ballots are not the same kind of ballots at issue in Coleman's Supreme Court case because these were accepted and then physically placed in the wrong pile. The county planned to send them to the state for a decision. See the Pioneer Press story here. See the case page here.
