One DFL insider, who asked not to be named, said that these attacks are aimed at a very small audience, both state election officials and sitting judges who may end up making decisions on the outcome of this race. The theory is that if Republicans keep attacking, the only way people will be able to prove their honesty is to bend over backward in favor of Coleman on any questionable ballots.
To date, two Republicans — Coleman and the state's Republican Party chairman, Ron Carey — have declared Coleman the winner over DFL challenger Al Franken.
Again, the message: If Coleman isn't the winner when the recount is completed sometime next month, the election was stolen.
