There’s due diligence to the process and there’s playing politics.  Tom Emmer just his held a press conference to announce he’s doing the latter under the guise of the former; he’ll continue to wait out the recount process and see what the state Supreme Court has to say about reconciling registrations with ballots.  That’s fine, except Rachel SB at the STrib says that GOP Chair Tony Sutton and Emmer “have blurred lines between ‘reconcilliation’ and updating of state registration database.”  Also, fun fact, as reported by MPR’s Tom Scheck, the Emmer camp “has filed 3573 ballots (frivolous and legit). Dayton had a 8770 vote lead before recount started”.
