Why Franken Is So Optimistic About the Recount

This is from doubleplusundead at http://doubleplusundead.mee.nu/

"A woman who worked for Al Franken earlier this week during the Senate recount in one county ended up counting ballots as a nonpartisan volunteer here Saturday in a recount that grew heated at times.
"Maggie Vertin, who spent two days in Fergus Falls for Otter Tail County’s recount as an observer for Franken, was one of eight volunteers who assisted with the Wilkin County effort in Breckenridge. Bob Westfall, who was in Breckenridge on Saturday as an observer for Norm Coleman, said he had concerns when members of his team learned a ballot counter had worked for Franken."

The maintenance of a system of government such as devised by our founding fathers requires basic levels of decency and honesty that are becoming less common.
