    FOXNews.com - Ballot Madness: Tipping the Scales in Minnesota's Senate Recount - Opinion

    The Canvassing Board overseeing the vote recount for Minnesota’s tightly contested U.S. Senate race isn’t quite done examining disputed ballots, but using their numbers the Minnesota Star Tribune issued a projection Saturday night that Al Franken will pick up 270 votes when the board is finished. Currently the board is determining voter intent in disputed ballots. If the projection proves correct, Franken will beat incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman by 78 votes.

    Franken and his friends are counting the votes
    Check out the ballots

    118 that do not exist. The Court gave Franken 118 votes that no one can find cause a tally sheet had them on Election night, so much for actually doing a recount.

    It's just amazing that Democrats go to such great lengths to win elections... I mean seriously can you remember the last election where Republicans make up such a huge amount of votes...

    I guess for Democrats it doesn't matter how you get elected...only that you get elected...

    If Franken wins, this will be challenged in the courts. This recount is an absolute joke regardless of party affiliation. I can't imagine that many Dems are even happy about what is happening in Minnesota.

    I hear you bro. It would be nice if my vote and your vote counted equally.

    I do not want crooks in office. Please see threads on electronic vote theft and which party affiliation the electronic vendors have, across the board.

    The US is the great experiment, ie democracy. If the process isn't democratic then the experiment fails, as we have seen in recent years.

    It's two different games (one through stuffing physical ballots and the other through stuffing electronic ballots) and neither is anything to laugh at. I think we can only change it if we stop calling each other black, ie pot kettle.

    Really? Let's talk about Florida and THEIR recount to elect the poster child for Planned Parenthood......George Bush Jr.

    I guess that it doesn't matter who the GOP elects, as long as they're republican.

    Since when is this a game? I treat the election process with great respect as should we all. When these things happen, it is another black mark on the process. To take a partisan side to a questionable election weakens the process. What I am "pissed" about is that all these recounts make a joke of voting which in turn makes some people wonder why they should vote at all. The quest for power creates much evil. This is OUR United States...not the Democrats or Republicans. They use us and then sit back and laugh at how much we care about them and fight to get them elected. Then they spit in our face with all of their corruption and power madness. Then we get on these boards and defend one side or another when they both are equally guilty at destroying these United States. To turn it into a "Game" only helps to keep the corrupt in power and abusing the system.
