DFLer Mark Dayton lambasted (politely) the GOP's move into court this morning, saying the party "is challenging the integrity of our election process."
In an interview on Fargo radio station KFGO, the former U.S. Senator said the Republicans' petition to the state Supreme Court to order local election officials to doublecheck Election Day vote totals "seems strange to me" and that the party is skating on "pretty thin ice."
Continuing the ice metaphor, he recalled his days as a hockey player, saying, " it's sort of like you can lose the game six to four, and then you ask the judge to throw all ten goals into the lottery and you pull out six of them and hope that those are yours rather than the other team's."
He added, "It seems strange to me but I just live here."
