Democrats stealing election in MN?

In an editorial on Foxnews.com, John R. Lott, Jr. and Ryan S. Lott shine light on the suspect results of the Minnesota State Canvassing Board’s power to divine voter intent on disputed ballots in the Coleman vs. Franken Senate race.

Though they do reference the suspicious missing votes that miraculously appeared to narrow Coleman’s election day lead, they focus their attention on more concrete inconsistencies involving individual ballots.

Using photographs of actual ballots, they demonstrate the certain bias of the Board in favor of Franken.  They go even further, linking to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune website where readers can view photos of several hundred contested ballots, vote on how they would interpret the ballot, see the breakdown of how other readers interpreted it, and the actual decision of the canvassing board.

Here’s an example of a ballot the Board decided was inconclusive, the vote wasn’t given to either candidate.

There are several other examples of the clear bias on the Canvassing Board in the Fox article and on the Star-Tribune website linked above.

It appears we’ll fight this battle in every close election from now until forever. If the Democrats are losing, they’ll just keep counting until they “find” enough votes to put them over the top. And there’s no limit to the methods they’ll use to “find” those votes.
