The now famous "Lizard People" ballot was judged yesterday.
Norm Coleman's challenge was duly rejected, and the Lizard People went to Al Franken. Thanks to the great work of the people at The Uptake we now have this moment recorded for posterity. Live --and strangely compelling-- streaming video is available at their site.
As of this writing, Al Franken has a lead of 128 votes. Caveat though: That doesn't include withdrawn challenges or the improperly rejected absentee ballots.
Review of challenged ballots in the recount for the MN seat for US Senate brings some welcome comic relief in the name of write-in candidates on challenged ballots: Lizard People and Flying Spaghetti Monster, with a little Frankenstin [sic] for good measure.
Edit: Actually, Lizard People ended up being recorded as an "overvote", while Flying Spaghetti Monster and Frankenstin were recorded for Franken.
