Alaska Superior Court rules against Joe Miller

(CNN)– A state judge in the Alaska Superior Court has ruled against Senate candidate Joe Miller's challenge of write-in ballots. The ruling states that there is no proof of election official fraud, or that "there would be a sufficient change to the election results if these claims were true."

The ruling order is stayed until December 13 to allow for an appeal, but the Alaska Division of Elections has asked a federal judge to lift the stay and allow them to certify the Senate results in favor of Lisa Murkowski.

    Gee, what a surpise! Miller has absolutely NO chance of defeating Murkowski, but insists on being a sore loser.

    No wonder Palin likes him: they're both a couple of cry-baby wannabes.

    Must be the lack of light up there in Alaska that turns out these nutjobs ...

    One down, now he will go to the U. S. Supreme Court, of course Murkowski really isn't any better than Miller. They both vote the same way. The true Alaskan didn't win.

  18. GOP = Greed Over People

    What aspect of basic math does Miller need explained to him by the Alaskan Supreme Court?

    Let me see if I can help.

    10000 is greater than 8000, even if the court tossed out ALL 8000 of the ballots you challenged, Mur...whoever, would still have won by 2000 unchallenged votes..

    In other words,10000 take away 8000 leaves 2000 and is greater than 0, you mathematical moron(sorry forgot. you are a tea bagger and are by definition, cerebrally challenged).

    No wonder Alaska gets the most per capita of federal funds, it needs to shore up its educational system, as obviously, 30 years ago they must have taught math on an Abacus!

    Miller is nothing more than Palin with a zipper. When will HE be working for FAUX and giving speeches spreading lies, hate, and fear? How about a couple of coloring books? WHEN? $$$$$$$$ is the state symbol of Alaskans.

    Face it, EVEN if he had won his challenge, that would have NOT changed the fact that he lost. All this yadda-yadda from him is to strip Murkowski from her seniorship in Senate, hence the fact that the Alaska Division of Elections is wanting (more like being pressed to) to certify the results ASAP.
