What is Coleman's beef with most of the Franken votes? There is no irregularity
I've done close to 1000 and Franken is up 561 - 397 42.

I have Franken winning by 894 votes after 1000 votes.

I don't see any grounds for most of the challenges and Coleman's I can't see reality. Am I missing something?

2. It's called "working the Ref."
If you raise enough objections, whether merited or not, they will feel that they've got to give you some of them (merited or not) or they will look biased.

3. Coleman is a Republican.
That should explain it all.

4. How did you award
the "lizard people" one, by the way? That's the ballot I'm most curious about the final disposition of.

5. Challenging the votes takes them off the totals
Which means that every day the media and the SoS website report Norm Coleman with a lead of x votes, which means that every day Franken is pressured by the media and individuals to drop out.

I'm glad Franken is sticking to his guns. One more week...

6. coleman's goal is to keep the official unchallenged total showing him UP.
Even if he has to challenge obvious Franken votes. It's the way the GOP operates. They lie and cheat.
