Must Have Been a Hanging Chad...

From Minnesota:
One of Minnesota's 10 presidential electors broke from the pack and cast a vote Monday for John Edwards, the Democratic vice presidential running mate for John Kerry.

The other nine Minnesota members of the Electoral College voted for Kerry, who won the state's popular vote in November.

After the state's Electoral College ceremony concluded, no one stepped foward as the Edwards voter. Most electors chalked the vote up as a mistake rather than a purposeful political statement.

'I'm sure somebody made a mistake,' said elector Michael Meuers of Bemidji. 'I'm certainly glad that the Electoral College is not separated by one vote.'
So many comments, so little time...
