Apparently Al thinks the rejected absentee voters, whose ballots were rejected for sundry reasons, need to be contacted to find out the specifics of why their ballots didn’t count… and he’s filed a lawsuit to do just that.

The latest twist in Minnesota’s U.S. Senate recount came this morning, when the Al Franken campaign hit Ramsey County with a lawsuit, seeking the names of voters whose absentee ballots were rejected.

The DFLer’s campaign hopes to force counties across the state to cough up the lists of rejected voters who, if later found eligible, could tip the balance in the closest Senate race in the country, between Fanken and incumbent Repubilcan U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman.

Marc Elias, lead recount attorney for the Franken campaign, said that both Ramsey and Hennepin counties had already rejected its request, forcing the campaign to take legal action.

His justification for such a move? It seems the Franken crowd have found a woman who’s signature doesn’t match that of her “pre-stroke” signature.

Is this guy banking on a vast amount of “strokes” in the electorate??
