One of the judges of the Minnesota State Canvassing Board has just come out with a blistering response to the Wall Street Journal
opinion piecehit job, which smeared them and what they were doing in the recount.
Consider the following:
1) The canvassing board consists of one secretary of state and four judges, one of whom is the Chief Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court.
2) Of the 5 members of the canvassing board, 2 are Republicans, 2 are independents (one of whom was appointed by Jesse Ventura when he was governor), and ONE is a Democrat.
3) Of the 9 decisions made by the canvassing board during the recount, 9 were unanimous, and not one was a split decision.
4) The canvassing board made all 9 decisions based on Minnesota law. Not one of them was in Franken's or Coleman's pocket.
5) The writer of the WSJ
opinion piecehit job is Trent England, member of a Neocon think tank called Evergreen Freedom Foundation. And what is the Evergreen Freedom Foundation? A private interest law firm for its contributors, disguised as a public interest policy organization. You can read more about them here.
The Wall Street Journal is not what it used to be, now that Rupert Murdoch has taken over. At worst, this
opinion piecehit job could be called libel. At best, it is yellow journalism of the worst sort, conceived by a partisan hack, for the purpose of spreading partisan lies.
Finally, there is a good reason the WSJ
opinion piecehit job has been pushed hard by FOX News today. Murdoch owns FOX News too. What a coincidence...NOT.
