Remember the thousands of ballots that showed up for Franken in some lady's trunk in Minneapolis that just happened to be 99% Franken votes right after Franken lost then won the Senate race a few years ago? Now we know how Minneapolis gets their 84% voter turnout.

Minnesota was predicting 78% turnout, 2% short.

Many in Hennepin County were bussed in and couldn't speak a work of english. Their absentee ballots were filled out for them.

AND on local TV an official from Hennepin County said: "people can vote using absentee ballots for any reason they want".

Which of course is false, absentee ballots are to be used in a very small number of cases when voters will not be able to vote at a polling place because of: out of town, faith, illness. PERIOD!!

For an "election official" to say anything different is a CLEAR indication that voter fraud is occurring!!

Here's the article, from the link above:
Hennepin County voters swarmed to the polls on Nov. 6, with more than 610,000 people voting on Election Day and more than 72,000 voting before then.
The highest turnout in the county was Precinct 1 in Shorewood, with 94 percent. In Minneapolis, Ward 7, Precinct 1C north of Cedar Lake had the highest city turnout, at 92 percent.
Many precincts in Bloomington, Brooklyn Park, Edina, Golden Valley, Greenwood, Minnetonka, Minnetrista, Plymouth and St. Louis Park had turnouts of more than 90 percent.
In other election trivia, 3,200 ballots were cast from military and overseas voters, 11 percent voted absentee, and 19 percent of voters -- 130,000 people -- registered on Election Day. More than 5,000 people worked as election judges.
Minnesota's turnout was 76 percent, tops in the nation. Minnesota has had the best turnout in the U.S. in 12 of the last 16 elections, Hennepin County elections manager Rachel Smith said.
Total lie.

The real story is that Obama supporters voted numerous times in multiple precincts and then fabricated more ballots to get the numbers up to 84% mark.
