JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — GOP nominee Joe Miller sued Tuesday to keep the state from using discretion in counting write-in ballots in Alaska's hotly contested Senate race, setting off what could become a drawn-out legal battle.
The lawsuit was filed the day before election officials planned to start counting write-in ballots that could determine the outcome of the race. Lt. Gov. Craig Campbell, who oversees Alaska elections, said the count will proceed Wednesday morning as planned.
This issue here is that Miller wants ballots thrown out that misspell Murkowski's name, even if only one letter is incorrect. Never mind that the intent of the voter is crystal clear when he or she wrote in Murkowski's name.
I have only one statement to make here:
Joe Miller - You are an ass and a douche bag of the lowest calibre. And you will not succeed in circumventing the will of the voters, who probably already knew what kind of a dishonest bitch you really are, hence the reason they voted for your opponent.
OK, make that 2 statements. :mrgreen:
