Witnesses Called in the Minnesota Election Trial
Norm Coleman's legal team
to the stand yesterday in his battle to have the results of
the Minnesota Senate election reversed. Monday they brought in photocopies of rejected ballots but the
court rejected the photocopies, so yesterday the actual voters were brought in. However, not all of them
were helpful. One voter sheepishly admitted that the reason the signatures on his ballot application and
on the ballot envelope did not match is that his girlfriend filled out the ballot application
and signed it (which is illegal and a reason to reject the vote). Another voter said he voted in person
but when shown his absentee ballot, then changed his tune and denied that he voted in person. The trial
will continue today.
Meanwhile, Minnesota has only one senator.
This seriously isn't going to change anything.
The taxpayers are footing the bill for this circus, but it doesn't look like much of a show, and Norm's got himself another job already.
