HUffies Worry That Al Franken Unable To Steal Senate Election
(I'm back and so is Al Gore. I've been busy lately writing up the new "Al Gore At The Movies" reviews. Here is the first REVIEW about "Quantum of Solace." Okay, now on to the DUFU.)
The HUffington POst HUffies are worried that Al Franken might not be able to steal the election for U.S. senator from Minnesota. As a result, they are now calling for Franken to "find" missing ballots which really means manufacture missing ballots. You can find their concerns on this HUffie THREAD titled, "Franken Camp Calls For Investigation Of Missing Ballots." If Franken is unable to steal enough ballots to "win" then it is going to absolutely kill him. A Democrat sweep in the Senate and poor widdle Al is left out. How badly does that have to hurt him. So let us now watch the HUffies worry about Franken's possible inability to steal the election in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who has been busy typing up Al Gore's movie reviews, is in the [brackets]:
Franken Camp Calls For Investigation Of Missing Ballots.
[Missing Ballots MUST be manufactured.]
Al Franken's Senate campaign called on the Minnesota Secretary of State to launch a comprehensive investigation into the possibility of missing ballots in the state's recount election.
[Possibility means fantasy.]
In a conference call with reporters on Monday, aides to the Democratic challenger said that they were growing increasingly concerned with news reports that ballots from Election Day -- which by state law must be recounted -- have gone missing.
"The number of votes counted on November 4th," said spokesman Andy Barr, "exceeds the number of ballots produced for consideration during the recount."
Marc Elias, Franken's chief lawyer, said that the campaign was not alleging foul play, noting that many of these missing ballots could be the product of administrative oversight or simple misplacement. But, with the election margin down to double digits (according to the Franken campaign's internal numbers, which they would not detail) he added that every single vote was of the utmost importance.
"[Missing ballots] should be a serious matter for cause and concern. That is why today we are calling on the Secretary of State to launch an investigation to find these ballots and make sure they are counted... to immediately instruct local elected officials to redouble their efforts to find all missing ballots," said Elias. "We know this is a close election... in an election this close we cannot let any lawful vote go uncounted."
[We cannot let any "missing" vote go unstolen.]
The Coleman campaign, too, has said that reports of missing ballots should be taking seriously -- and there is little indication that these missing ballots would benefit one candidate or another. For example, on Friday, 74 ballots were discovered missing in St. Louis County, only to be found in a locked counting machine inside a warehouse. The county auditor said that the ballots contained votes for Franken and Coleman. On Thursday, meanwhile, the Center for Election Integrity MN reported that 243 ballots had gone missing in Robbinsdale County, only to be later found. Of that bunch 143 were votes for Franken, 140 for Coleman.
Those cases, however, have been successfully solved. In a memo to the Secretary of State, David Lillehaug, another attorney for the Franken campaign, claimed that there were still five missing ballots in Clay County, three in St. Louis, and 13 in Washington County.
[So a total of 18 missing votes. Even if Franken wins them all, Coleman still wins.]
"In an election this close," he added, "these discrepancies should be cause for serious concern to every Minnesota voter."
[Especially if that Minnesota voter is named Al Franken. And now on to the HUffie rantings...]
I'm not from Minnesota, but I do hope Al wins. I have a really piss poor reason for that. It's just that I am sick and tired of born again, family values, hypocritic smarmy republicans with helmet hair who must spend a lot of time at the dentist for teeth whitening!
[A HUffie deranged by the thought of Republicans with their well-combed hair and white teeth.]
Hey AL...you may have to go back to Air America, that network that can't even retain a station in the country's largest media market that reaches past the island of Manhattan.
[Al can't go back to Air America. He already stole all the money he possibly could from the Boys and Girls Clubs.]
the republicans are getting cocky about this. Al just sit tight, and REFUSE to concede until Coleman just gives up, through it to the Supreme Court if you have to. If he can't have the seat nobody should. Contest, Fight, Never give up.
[I can just picture Al Franken camping out on the steps of the Capitol demanding his Senate seat.]
This means that the Frankenstein campaign thinks they are going to lose. Time to start blaming the good ol' missing ballots and the GOP for stealing another one.
[Quick! Find a scapegoat.]
it is so obvious that republicans can't win an election without cheating.
[A severe case of projection here.]
The GOP thinks it can tamper with election results - not this time.
[This time the Democrats think they can tamper with election results yet again.]
This is not good. Franken wouldn't be raising this if there was confidence the count was going his way. Those contested ballots might not be so good for him. According to Nate Silver Frankin's projected to win by 27 votes but that's looking at statistics. Franken's people have looked at the actual ballots.
[Yeah, when the Franken camp raises "missing ballots" you know they are really behind.]
Has anyone looked for the ballots under Coleman's mattress?
[Or up Franken's tush?]
