I understand that the Minnesota Supreme Court has accepted the Coleman campaign’s petition for a hearing regarding the issues raised by the Board of Canvassers’ “recommendation” that Minnesota’s 87 counties certain previoulsy rejected absentee ballots (so called “fifth pile” absenteen ballots). Last week the board recommended that counties sort and count absentee ballots that were mistakenly rejected, subject to no uniform standard. The hearing is set for Wednesday afternoon. The Supreme Court could have punted and may yet do so, but the hearing holds out the possibility that the Pandora’s box opened by the Board of Canvassers might be shut.
