By the way, I’m not sure how many have noticed, but the two precincts most subject to rightwing scarifying — in Two Harbors and Mountain Iron — have been recounted.
Republicans expressed outrage that Franken’s Two Harbors number rose from 27 on Election Night to 273; officials explained they mistakenly dropped a “3” transmitting the totals to the Secretary of State’s website. Recount number: 273.
In Mountain Iron, GOP operatives screamed about a 100-vote Franken jump, from 406 to 506, resulting from an Election Night mis-transcription of preliminary phoned-in results. The recount gave Franken 504 votes, a perfectly normal adjustment so far.
Remember, all precinct recounts are observed by Coleman representatives.
Next phony scandal?
