Minnesota Senate Recount -- update 5

By Michael J.W. Stickings

The more or less official tally has Coleman up by 316 (an increase of 101 since the start of the recount), but Franken's lead lawyer announced Wednesday afternoon that his candidate is actually in the lead by 22. How so? TPM's Eric Kleefeld explains:

The Franken camp's methodology involves taking down the opinions of the local election officials regarding the challenged ballots, and assuming that all the challenges will result in those local officials being upheld by the state canvassing board. As such, we are dependent on the Franken camp being complete and accurate in their homework, and also on their underlying assumption proving to be correct.

And how about those "mystery votes" in Minneapolis, 133 votes that have just disappeared (to the detriment of Franken)?

Quite the controversy-laden drama, this recount.
