ST. PAUL, Minn. – The judges in the Minnesota Senate trial have identified the first of what could be many wrongly rejected absentee ballots that they say must be included in the final count.

The judges' order Tuesday means that 24 supporters of Democrat Al Franken whose absentee ballots were rejected will see their votes counted.

Republican Norm Coleman wants the judges to count about 4,700 other rejected absentee ballots, and his lawyer says their decision means they're more likely to take that step.

Franken has a 225-vote lead over Coleman, not including the 24 votes at issue Tuesday.

Bet you can take it to the bank that Coleman is going to win if he gets these ballots admitted. There has to be a lot more Coleman ballots that were tossed then Franken.

With all the leftists doing all they can to find invalid votes and to steal the election, it will be a wonder if franknstein loses.

One actally was tossed because the Franken lawyer spotted the name of a Coleman lawyer as a witness on one of the absentee’s.. this was the Coleman lawyers fiance who had to go on a business trip so filed absentee and had him sign as witness... it was a totally legitimate ballot other than the fact it was for Coleman, but the Franken lawyer had it thrown out.
