This Recount Stinks

From the Pioneer Press, an update on the MN Gubernatorial recount in Ramsey County:

Emmer campaign representatives challenged at least two ballots that contained the same names in multiple races or odd writings -- in the write-in space.

One challenged ballot included a write-in vote for "Who farted?"

Advice to the Emmer camp, I'd stand clear of this one. If voter intent has to be inferred, that sounds like a Dayton vote.

Either that, or this was an attempt to vote for legendary actor Curtis Armstrong. If so, this voter should be ashamed of himself. Next time, make it easier on everyone and simply write in the name "Booger".
