Franken Wins 2 Important Rulings

Al Franken has scored 2 important victories in his fight to make sure every vote is counted in Minnesota, per Politico:
The Minnesota Canvassing Board unanimously recommended that all counties include the absentee ballots that were unfairly rejected on Election Day in the recount.
Additionally, the Canvassing Board also ruled in Franken's favor with regard to the 133 ballots that weren't counted from one of the Minneapolis precincts. That precinct went very strongly for Franken, and that's another huge win for the good guys.
Cheers to Al Franken for not giving up and making sure the votes are counted. However, it's important to note that the Canvassing Board can only recommend that the absentee ballots. The county elections boards can either follow the ruling or not.
The Franken people are claiming a razor thin 4 vote lead at this point, so keep your fingers crossed, folks.
