Coleman Spokesman Declares That Court Can't Certify Election Result

One thing that now needs to be pointed out is a clever piece of word-play Ginsberg has used. At the presser today he said the court is now unable to certify "the number of legally-cast votes," and he's also used the phrase "the exact number of legal votes."

But that's not what the law says. It says, emphasis ours: "the only question to be decided by the court is which party to the contest received the highest number of votes legally cast at the election and is therefore entitled to receive the certificate of election."

The law doesn't say the exact number of legal votes. It just calls for a legal determination of which party received more of them.

However, Norm has us covered there -- he doubts we can figure that out, either.
