They marked up the copies and omitted original information to the point where the judges couldn't trust that the copies were true and accurate. My question is this: If the Coleman camp was aware that absentee ballots were being improperly rejected, why were they not doing this homework during the recount itself?
Before the Supreme Court gave both parties veto power over deciding which Absentee Ballots should be re-considered. Now Coleman has taken it upon himself to SINGLE-HANDEDLY veto more than 50% of the 12,000 absentee ballots, and only re-examine those approx 5,000 that Coleman has Cherry-Picked. How the heck is this a move towards "equal protection"???
If Mr. Coleman's legal representation continues to alter evidence and/ or manipulate evidence can the judges just throw them all out of court?
How many chances do they get before the panel puts them out? How long did you say this was going to take? How many weeks or months of cherry picking does state law allow? When Mr. Coleman is finished does Mr. Franken get to challenge him? Will there be more cherry picking after that? Will this panel take weeks to process paper work so that all is neat and tidy when Mr. Coleman takes it to the supreme court? Will Minnesota have a senator by the MLB All Star Game? Does this panel care?
It's like computers. Garbage in, garbage out. First day: they produced altered photo copies. Second day: they produced a witness who forgot he voted absentee and then in person, and another guy who's girlfriend forged his signature on one document so that's why it didn't match his own signature on the ballot. This is looking more and more like Judge Judy. I wish she was presiding.
