More Proof of Republicans Stealing the Election

"Defeated Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry likely is going to get one less electoral vote nationally than he should have--251 instead of 252--because of an apparent mistake Monday by one of Minnesota's 10 DFL electors," the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. (DFL is not a football league but the Democratic Farmer Labor Party, as Gopher State Dems style themselves.) The paper explains:

One of the 10 handwritten ballots cast for president carried the name of vice
presidential candidate John Edwards (actually spelled "Ewards" on the ballot)
rather than Kerry. . . .

There was stunned silence after the announcement that Edwards had gotten a vote for president, but none of the 10 electors volunteered that they voted for Edwards as a protest, nor did anyone step forward to admit an error.

"It was perhaps a senior moment," said elector Michael Meuers, 60, a Bemidji marketing consultant for a health care firm, the second-youngest member of the Minnesota delegation to the Electoral College.
