Al Picks Up 37 Votes!

Eric Kleefeld @ Talking Points Memo:
Ramsey County elections manager Joe Mansky just confirmed to us by phone that Franken picked up a net 37 votes over Norm Coleman from these ballots. The ballots were just discovered this morning, after an apparent machine breakdown on Election Night prevented them from being counted the first time around -- but the hand count had no similar problems picking them out.
Thirty-seven more votes for Franken, after 171 were found in a voting machine in Maplewood. Of course, the Coleman campaign will contest this, as they have every other ballot that's not been clearly, fully, and completely marked. I swear, these people must proctor SAT exams in their other lives. And I expect the wingnuts to lose their minds about this; or, as Jeff at the Twin Cities Daily Liberal puts it, "conservative freakout in 3…2…1…"
