Another blogger at 4:15 am posted the following:

"I don't get the numbers . There appears to be two, one at the Sec of State and the other at CNN. Somehow CNN seems to be or thinks they are ahead of the Sec of states numbers."

So for about 30 minutes at just after 4:00 am there were two different tallies running simultaneously at CNN and the Minnesota Secretary of State's website that seemed very odd. It would not be surprising that numerous media outlets would have tallies that would lag the official tally at the Secretary of State website. But having CNN's numbers running higher and ahead of the numbers on the Minnesota Secretary of State's website for only about 30 minutes seems to require another as of yet unidentified explanation.

It is also interesting to note that there are rumors trickling in that some of the precincts in the urban and heavily democratic voting areas of the state did NOT transmit their results over the internet from the voting machines to the respective county vote tabulators. But rather many of the memory cards were hand delivered to their respective county tabulation locations.

Doing this obviously prevents any man-in-the-middle attacks that have been described in the Mike Connell investigation. What I find fascinating is why this was done. Was it because of what was found out on Monday during the Mike Connell testimony? And what accounted for the subtraction of votes in the wee hours of the morning on Wednesday November 5th?

If it wasn't clear before it is clear now that there are plenty of issues that have come to light warranting the need for a recount, even if it wasn't already dictated by state law. Thankfully in Minnesota there is a paper trail and we will soon find out just how accurate the initial results were and especially the results in precincts where electronic voting machines were used. Even though Norm Coleman prematurely claimed victory and called on Franken to waive a recount on Wednesday morning, everyone else including the media is settling in for not knowing the final outcome for a few more weeks. Let every vote be counted ... not by machines but by human hand.
