How many more times do we have to go through this?

351 ballots were counted today.

It was aired live via The Uptake.

They just announced that, of the 351 counted, the breakdown was:
Senator-elect Al Franken: 198
Norm Coleman: 111
Other: 42

Senator-elect Franken picked up 87 votes. Added to the 225-vote tally, Senator-elect Franken leads by at least 312 votes (and that is before taking into account the "Nauen61" case that may add dozens more Franken votes to the tally).

Norm Coleman has found himself further behind at every single step of this process. It's truly embarrassing that this continues to be allowed to go forward. We need a fast-tracked appeal to the Minnesota Supreme Court, and then a signed certificate of election. Al Franken has won this race.
