There is nothing any more fishy than when Lieberman won as an independent in CT.

As I said I hate what Murkowski did, but that isn’t corruption. Winning by write in is quite an accomplishment.

Miller didn’ty handle that stupid computer “scandal” well and obviously a lot of democrats voted for Murkowski as well.

Snips from late last night ADN.com article:

The Murkowski campaign is all but claiming victory as Sen. Lisa Murkowski leads Joe Miller by more than 1,700 votes after Monday's review of write-in ballots.

The Division of Elections has now counted 92,164 votes for Murkowski and 90,458 for Miller. Murkowski's number will grow as the state continues to go through write-in ballots today, looking to see what name voters wrote on them.

More than 8,000 write-in ballots remain to be looked at. The trend since counting began last week has been for the Division of Elections to count more than 97 percent of them for Murkowski.......

Miller was hoping to get a boost from absentee ballots. But Monday was the last big count of absentees and there turned out to be more write-ins than Miller votes.

Only about 600 absentee ballots remain to be counted later this week from military and overseas addresses, according to the Division of Elections.

I appreciate your honest post. You are the only one to believe that Miller may have lost because of his problems. All the others blame Lisa. I live in Alaska and Miller made this election about Miller to the extent that the tea party talking points were a distant second on the agenda. Thanks for your post. tk
