Coleman’s days are numbered

Good post at Minn Post examining the legal precedents affecting Coleman’s challenge to the 2008 US Senate election.

Over recent days, Team Coleman has often faced the criticism that he is raising his arguments too late. This is a big one. Judge Kurt Marben (one of the ThreeJudges hearing the contest) specifically asked Team Coleman why the court should not follow the Bell v. Gannaway precedent and rule that challenges to the acceptability of absentee ballots must be made before the ballot gets into the ballot box.

It’s looking good for Franken.
