1. A number of precincts have not yet reported. We shall see.
It's a cliffhanger.

3. Don't count chickens. We're not going to know the results for a while.
And with Coleman's crap, there's no way to tell if all the votes will be counted...

4. Anyone that claims this is over, is mistaken
There is still a recount to finish, followed by going through over 6,000 challanges, a bunch of missing ballots, the issue as to whether some of the rejected ballots will be counted, followed by possible lawsuits.

7. City officials have now fessed up that those 133 ballots are, in fact, missing.
......and not the result of an over count.

PUBLISHED: 12/04/2008


Well into the Senate race recount and a day after Senate hopeful Al Frankens camp alleged 133 ballots were missing from a Dinkytown precinct, the city of Minneapolis and the secretary of states office confirmed it.

At the Ward 3, Precinct 1 site which covers most of Dinkytown 2,029 people voted but only 1,896 ballots were found in the recount.

One of five sealed envelopes containing ballots is nowhere to be found, Minneapolis Elections Director Cindy Reichert said at a City Hall news conference Thursday. Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak stood by.

Were still hopeful were going to find it in some odd place, Reichert said, adding that the missing envelope is thinner than a typical one, which holds about 500 instead of just 133.

6. Doesn't matter how many people keep on posting the results
from the SOS site, those results are meaningless because they are incomplete.
Get a clue.
