Mr Miller, obviously, you think you have a bone to pick with non-traditional Republican candidates, why is that, they have not even been sworn in yet, they have not had a chance to screw anything up yet.

Kind of like the votes against gay marriage in California and the votes to ban sharia law in Oklahoma! Yeah the courts really listen to the people.

If I remember correctly, voters in Alaska were handed a list of all write in candidates, with correctly spelled names. If this was the case, then no, mispellings and abreviations should not count. If that was not the case then legible, close to the correctr spellings should be allowed. Although, if the court follows the letter of the law, then the ruling may go against Murkowsky. I would assume that each side would have a representative at the counting to challenge votes, because I am sure there will be votes that will be so vague or illegible that they should be thrown out.
WHAT REALLY HAPPENED RIGHT HERE IN ALASKA !! >>>>>>>

Well, that would be where you are wrong, and once again Mr.I'm
a liar,goon squad,lawyer-ball(Joe Miller) cried about that too!
The division of elections said it would provide a list ONLY if voters asked for it and for people with disabilities. Cry baby
Miller threw a fit about it, and went lawyer-ball about that
too. Well, it does not matter now because even with his sell
out Tea-Party goons and the number of ballots his "squad"
contested, Lisa Murkowski STILL wins by nearly 2000 plus votes
EVEN if you DO NOT include the ones the Miller /Palin goons
challenged! Now, even after it is all said and done, Joe Miller
is still whining and filing yet ANOTHER law suit to get yet
another recount,and still find some way to ignore the: "Will Of
The People" ! This guy is a MENTAL CASE !! All told here is
the best way to answer and thus quell ALL of this insanity>>>>

Joe Miller's name WAS PREPRINTED as one of the candidates on
ALL ballots ! Therefore; ANY ballot that DOES NOT have that
oval filled in,RIGHT BESIDE HIS NAME, OR the "write in" oval
filled in and his name written in (OH,don't forget to make
DAMN sure THOSE one's are also spelling HIS name ABSOLUTELY
CORRECTLY if the voter was trying to vote for HIM )!

So>>> ANY ballot that DOES NOT clearly indicate Joe Miller,
IS NOT, YEAH THAT'S RIGHT JOE, READ THIS AGAIN, "IS NOT"
a vote FOR Joe Miller !! If the vote can be reasonably determined
to be for an actual candidate, then THAT candidate is who the
voter "INTENDED" to vote for !! Most people WILL NOT take the
time to vote without at least SOME idea of WHO and WHY the even
bothered to vote !!

For someone who made all of those lies and comments about: "We
need to follow the law", "this is to protect the people" "I care
about Alaskan's" etc.etc.etc. this is sure a dead-on obvious
proof of what he and that entire B.S. media whore's (an illusion
for ignorant, media brainwashed,hollywood zombie people) "Tea
Party" lie.! They don't give a DAMN about the common person.
Now,big money spotlight,gross special interests, and what they
can literally RAPE out of people or their resources,especially
in Alaska, THAT they care VERY much about!!
How about Joe Miller taking all of that "law-suit" money and
doing something FOR the people of Alaska instead of trying to
ignore our votes ! WE DO NOT WANT YOU OR YOUR "SELL-OUT" MEDIA
WHORE PALIN OR YOUR/HER KIND !! This has been made CRYSTAL
CLEAR IN "OUR" YES THAT IS RIGHT !! THE PEOPLE OF ALASKA HAVE
SPOKEN !! GOODBYE AND PLEASE DO NOT COME BACK !!

Eventhough you are Republican just like veteran Alaska steward Lisa Murkowski [R.AK}, way out of mainstream Joe Miller, just the fact you are suing for something as petty as mispelling of her write-in name { My God all you have to is read an "M" and a "K" and phonetically anyone can tell it's "Murkowski"} you are unfit for such an august Office as U.S. Senator!! What are going to do once there, if a Bill doesn't go your way in Committee, you stupid ars? Sue the Committee? God what jerks, and flakes you amateur Tea Party opportunists are!!
F.M.
Joe Miller is a sore loser who is incurring a lot of ill will, which will not only outlast this election but also be active against him if he runs for any other office in Alaska.

Were I he, I would have executed a citizens' arrest on the whole crew, including ringleader Miller.
