Some Stories of Interest:
Coleman advocating a bypass of state law. Another Republican who has no respect for American law. Look, Norm, Minnesota state LAW requires the recount and your personal ego is not worth more than Minnesota state law. Get over it and let the votes be properly counted! Why do Republicans hate American law and disrespect fair and acurate voting?
File under 'Why we really need a recount'..... I will add that I have seen exactly this kind of mistake in Brooklyn. Tired, overworked election workers coupled with old machines mean recounts can be a good idea.
