Franken Lawyer: Coleman Has Switched Positions On Rejecting Votes

• The voter included their registration card inside the special secrecy envelope for the ballot, rather than outside that envelope. Friedberg was arguing yesterday that these ballots should be included.

• The signature on the ballot envelope didn't match the one on the application. The Coleman team now believes extra leniency should be applied in matching up signatures -- even going so far as to advocate for a man who admits that someone else forged his signature on the application.

At this point we start to see some redeeming qualities of the state Supremes' decision. Because the campaigns listed with each veto the reason for doing it, they appear to have locked themselves into the idea that particular reasons for rejecting ballots were legal and valid ones. In other words, it may be very difficult to litigate one's way out of this.
