In totally not breaking news because we all knew it was going to happen, no, he just won't go away.
The Republican candidate in the Alaska U.S. Senate race has asked a federal judge for a preliminary injunction stopping officials from certifying the election.
An attorney for Joe Miller sought the injunction Thursday as part of a previous lawsuit challenging write-in ballots for Lisa Murkowski, the incumbent senator....
Miller's lawsuit claims Alaska law requires voters to write in a candidate's name as it appears on a declaration of candidacy, or the last name of the candidate, to cast valid ballots.
Murkowski has a lead of around 10,400 votes. Miller's team challenged less than 8,200 of them. Here are a few of those challenged ballots.
Such a stickler for penmanship. "You cannot incorrectly mix upper and lower case letters! Or cursive and print!"
Even if, as seems highly unlikely they were all thrown out, he still loses by some 2,000 votes. But at least he's differentiated himself from his mentor in one respect--he doesn't know when to quit, whereas she's an expert at it.
