County auditor concerned about security of ballots


WILLMAR -- Kandiyohi County Auditor Sam Modderman didn't realize Tuesday that he is on Al Franken's list of potential witnesses in the Senate recount trial.

Thursday he gave a deposition to the Franken campaign. "I thought that might've taken care of it," said Modderman. He isn't looking forward to participating in another step in the recount process.
