So, now they are going after votes that weren't legit votes? If you can't figure out how to fill out the paperwork, then your vote shouldnt count. The votes are DISQUALIFIED. That means they are no good. Not because who they voted for, but because the moron that voted couldnt figure it out. To bad so sad. Lets waste a little more money, lets send someone door to door and just ask everyone instead of a recount. Lets employ another couple thosand sleaze bag lawyers.

Franken over phone: Hey, did you vote for me? Me: Why are you calling me? Franken: But I need to know.. Me: *click* How about some privacy?

Way to steal an election. I voted for Franken but now they're welcome to throw out my vote. I guess now in a close race we change the rules after the fact?

I hope FRANKEN wins so we can have representation in Minnesota other than Coleman's empty suit!

...are counted and Coleman takes a larger lead. Would you still want that, Mr. Franken, or are you only targeting "select" voters? You might have been successful stealing laughs on SNL, but I hope someone puts the kabosh on you trying to steal an election.

But it's Franken, so I guess it's OK.

He's already lost. What you really want is for them to manufacture enough votes to STEAL the election.

who would take a lead or not. If the votes were disqualified, they're out. Period. Can we not have even the simplest of standards?

if 2000 Florida had never happened. There were thousands of voters disqualified because they had the same, or nearly the same, even just the same first name as convicted felons. It may be that these are Colemens votes but lets make sure that its a level playing field this time, otherwise this could be in court for a long time, law suits from both sides.
