ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Supreme Court is getting involved in the state's unsettled U.S. Senate race.
The court said Monday it will weigh whether to stop the sorting and counting of wrongly rejected absentee ballots until clear instructions are handed down.
Republican Sen. Norm Coleman petitioned the court to step in after the state board overseeing the recount recommended those ballots be considered last week. Coleman maintains there aren't clear guidelines for the recommendation and could lead to disarray among the 87 counties.

The Bush v. Gore solution?
Why do we even bother posting the crAP that this organization puts out? It's strictly propaganda 24/7.
Is this an all-Democrat or mostly-Democrat court? I think someone said here the other day that they were all Democrats. In that case, they'll find for Frnaken, and the Supreme Court of the US may not see any reason to get involved.
If Franken can get within 133 votes, he's probably home free, since there is the precinct with the 133 ballots which may have been run through the machine twice. The additional 133 voters may not exist, but their votes will be added to Franken's total.
Are any of the RINO senators likely to jump ship if the Democrats get to 59...or will they just vote with the Democrats when it counts?
Good point. You know the DNC has saved untold $MM because the press is in the tank for them.
I’ll wager the clothes on my back that that obscenely un-funny clown will be declared the winner by the Anything-But-Honorable “gentleman” from Nevada.One only needs to googe “Richard D. McIntyre” and “Indiana” to see how it’s done.But my hunch is that the margin of “victory” will be more than four votes as it was with McIntyre.
Good evening. Tonight we are here to take a look at the abnormalities of life. It’s the irregular that we seek to review.
Elections come and elections go. Most of them run smoothly and involve persons loosely considered to have some semblance of honor.
We look now upon the count of votes from an area that doesn’t want to be seen as a backwater hick state. We have a wing nut that knows no honor or bounds, and we also have a reasoned human being just wanting this election to be over, an accurate count completed.
There is the normal and there is the wildly absurd. Tonight we take you on a journey into the later. Join us as we take a walk into the Minnesota Zone.
Give ‘em each a 1/2 vote and call it a day—sheeeesh!

I know what you mean. it’s down to about 50 here today. Brrrrrr... LOL
Judges in Minnesota are elected based on non-partisan elections which occur every six years. If someone vacates the position before the six year term is up, the governor appoints a replacement.
Four of the seven justices were appointed by Tim Pawlenty.
One was appointed by Arne Carlson.
One was appointed by Jesse Ventura.
One (HoF NFL defensive tackle) Alan Page won an election outright on his own and was never appointed.
AlGore, that Son of a Batch, is letting us down and taking our global warming away!
Then that would be a hopeful sign for Norm Coleman.
Meaning "votes for Coleman," according to the AP, eh?
