Minnesota election contest update
Court proceedings were very brief today with a normal full day expected tomorrow. Coleman's attorney, Ben Ginsburg, said that ballots that have already been counted from the Nauen group of Franken voters or the 933 that were counted after the Supreme Court-ordered review by the counties are now being labeled as illegally cast in light of Friday's order. He was asked whether votes can be "uncounted" and he said he did not know but also that they are not asking for votes to be uncounted but rather, for a universal applicaiton of the counting rules. Ginsburg also said that the remaining ballots appear to be from Coleman-leaning precincts but it remains to be seen how many of these can be proven to have been wrongfully rejected and legally cast and thus added to the count.
