A discrepancy over the number of ballots in a box and the number recorded on a computer tape from Election Day prompted a dispute this morning at the U.S. Senate recount underway in Ramsey County.
The mandatory statewide recount began last week in the race between Republican Norm Coleman and Democrat Al Franken.
In Ramsey county, there were seven fewer ballots in the box from St. Paul's Ward 5, Precinct 8 than recorded on Nov. 4. Election judges counted the ballots three times before resealing the box amid protests from Franken's observers.
County Elections Manager Joe Mansky said it's possible that judges in the precinct, located on the northern edge of St. Paul bordering Maplewood, might have inadvertently run some ballots through twice.

Praying hard for Norm Coleman!!
I can’t believe I actually used to like Al Franken all those years ago—what a LOSER he’s become!!!
AND STILL WILL BE WHEN THE REMAINDER OF THE VOTES ARE COUNTED!!!
NO DEMONCRAT MAJORITY IN CONGRESS!! CHECKS AND BALANCES!!
Well hell yes, those have got to be Frankenstein's.
Running ballots through twice is a talent or plain stupid.
One more time who is going to notice yet another ill-kempt, reeking of alcohol, foul tempered Democrat in the US Senate?
Ummmm.... a little late for that hope. The Democrats extended their majority by a bunch. Still no "super-majority"... but still... Add too that figure the worthless RINO population and it doesn't really matter. Obama will get whatever he wants.
Me...it’s NOT coming from my people. Ramsey County is the best - great schools, excellent business atmosphere, and other than the fact that my original home is now a Rainbow Foods....
Let me add further, “humorless” ~ Franken is little different from his soulmate Chucky Schumer.
I posted a thread earlier about a Franken campaign staffer being a supposed “non-partisan” vote counter. They busted her for it and she claimed that no one is really non-partisan.
