Shenanigans with the MN senate election?

I'm not going to pretend to be convinced it's a vicious plot to steal the election, but there is something seriously fishy about how all the misreported vote corrections seem to be going Franken's way in the MN senate election:
When the polls closed Tuesday evening, Minnesota's Secretary of State's office showed that Norm Coleman had a 725-vote win in his closely contested race against Al Franken. By the next morning, however, Coleman's victory was already shrinking. As various precincts and county auditors have "corrected" their totals, Coleman's lead has dropped to a mere 237 votes. Minnesota Republicans are concerned that the fix may be in.
And later:
Yesterday John Hinderaker explored "What's going on in Minnesota?" with the late arriving-votes that have reduced Norm Coleman's lead over Al Franken from 726 votes with 100 percent of precincts reporting on Wednesday morning to 221 votes as of this morning.
The vote corrections should be thoroughly investigated and substantiated. Let's hope that this all gets handled fairly and transparently.
