“Oh no, they forgot to label the ballots!”


By Noah Kunin, Senior Political Correspondent Republican Election Judge Pamela Howell recounts an exclamation made by her colleague on Election Day 2008 that she forgot to label duplicate ballots as such. This error, as cited by attorneys for former Senator Norm Coleman, opens the possibility for double counting of original and duplicate ballots.  This testimony was stricken from the record after attorneys for Al Franken objected to not being provided documentaion given by Howell to Team Coleman.  Team Franken also objected to a Coleman attorney coaching or “refreshing the memory” of Howell while the court recessed from cross-examination.
