Al Franken Lawyers Up (Has 12 attorneys per polling counting location)

Posted: Nov 13, 2008 6:57 PM

Of the 855 cities in Minnesota, 549 have populations of 1,300 or less.  

Interestingly, the Franken Campaign publicly stated they will have 1,250 lawyers on the recount.  As someone close to the recount emailed me, "that’s roughly 6 attorneys for every ballot they want to try to get to overturn the outcome of the election."

It seems like a lot of attorneys just to make sure the recount is fair and square...
