Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Recounting is done-now on to the challenged ballots

Republican Norm Coleman is up by 192 votes. Alleged comedian, Al Franken claims there are 133 ballots missing because of a discrepancy between the physical ballot count and the machine count at one Minneapolis voting site. Election workers at the polling place suspect these 133 "missing" ballots don't exist. They theorize the discrepancy is the result of someone erroneously sliding 133 absentee ballots (which should have been kept separate) through the polling machine.

Focus now moves to the nearly 6,700 challenged ballots as they are scrutinized beginning December 16.
