Coleman attorney Joe Friedberg is going over rejected absentee ballot envelopes with Washington County elections official Kevin Corbid, and they came across a pair of ballots that came from a husband and wife, but all appeared to have all been signed by the same individual -- apparently the husband signing his own name, and also forging his wife's signature for her ballot.
"So based on Jake's forging his wife's signature on [exhibit] 210 and then witnessing his own forgery," Friedberg said, "and comparing those signatures to the one on his voter envelope, we know based on your testimony that that's his genuine signature accompanying his own ballot, right?"
The Franken camp objected, saying that Corbid's opinion doesn't matter -- the document speaks for itself.
"I'm going to sustain that," said Judge Denise Reilly, "also on the grounds that it's really confusing."
