With the recount in the razor-thin Minnesota U.S. Senate race continuing into its second week, Democratic candidate Al Franken’s campaign says it has uncovered 6,400 rejected absentee ballots and will ask a state board to count at least some of those votes.

Campaign attorney Marc Elias said Tuesday that the campaign received the rejected ballots from 66 of the state’s 87 counties, according to the Associated Press. In some instances, clerical errors or oversight caused the ballot to be improperly rejected. 

Franken is running to unseat incumbent Republican Sen. Norm Coleman. Elections officials have recounted nearly 80 percent of the more than 2 million ballots cast in the Senate race.

Now, why would those ballots be turned over to the Franken campaign instead of the State Elections Commission?

The Dems are making a seriously blatent attempt to steal this election. We really need to put a stop to this type of third-world electioneering.
