Funny Count

There is something funny going on in the recount in Minnesota. When a ballot has been damaged in some way election officials are instructed to make a copy of it and mark the copy as being a copy. Apparently some were not so marked and both original and copy were counted. The Wall Street Journal says, "more than 25 precincts now have more ballots than voters who signed in to vote. By some estimates this double counting has yielded Mr. Franken an additional 80 to 100 votes."
This is becoming a hallmark of Democrat election victories: more ballots than voters with Democrat controlled election officials.
