WSJ Unsigned Editorial Largely Repeats what was in My Fox News Piece on Monday

From Wednesday's WSJ:

Up in Two Harbors, another liberal outpost, Mr. Franken picked up an additional 246 votes. In Partridge Township, he racked up another 100. Election officials in both places claim they initially miscommunicated the numbers. Odd, because in the Two Harbors precinct, none of the other contests recorded any changes in their vote totals.

According to conservative statistician John Lott, Mr. Franken's gains so far are 2.5 times the corrections made for Barack Obama in the state, and nearly three times the gains for Democrats across Minnesota Congressional races. Mr. Lott notes that Mr. Franken's "new" votes equal more than all the changes for all the precincts in the entire state for the Presidential, Congressional and statehouse races combined (482 votes). . . .

I find this whole thing to be very interesting. Voter fraud is one way to look at it. Another is maybe there was a mistake. The country did vote mostly Democratic last tuesday and most of us are looking for a change, if for no other reason than the market dying (on Bush's watch, before this race was decided)has us worried about keeping our jobs and paying for the luxuries in life, like mortage payments and food. You may have a point about fraud though. Maybe the federal government should step in with an election of this magnitude. As I read this and the editorial piece in the New York Post on November 13, one thought went through my mind. Were you this concerend when this problem of possible fraud and 'hanging chads' was taking place in Florida in 2000? George Bush did win that state with his brother counting the votes. Was your concern the same for the people of Florida as it is for the people of Minnesota? I would be interested in hearing your comments.
