MN Recount: Slow News Day
Nothing new has occurred today in the Franken/Coleman contest for Senate, although Coleman attorneys examined Anoka County elections manager Rachel Smith this morning regarding various irregularities in rejected absentee ballots. Franken has not yet had a chance to cross-examine her. Also, it appears that Smith found "a dozen or more" uncounted ballots cast in her county, inclusive of the three overseas/military ballots previously reported. Apparently the overseas/military ballots were cast for Coleman, but it is unknown for whom the rest of the ballots were cast.
