A Reason AGAINST Paper Ballots

Source: Whistleblower
Hat Tip: Drudge Report

This paper ballot in Minnesota is being challenged by Al Franken. No, not in a Saturday Night Live comedy skit. For real.

With a touch-screen system, you either touch the candidate's name or not. There is none of this asinine quibbling over intent, hanging chads, or finding 32 ballots (all suspiciously marked for the candidate who is behind, mind you) in a car.
If a touchscreen is good enough for an ATM or the self-checkout line in grocery stores...why is it not good enough for voting?
