You’ve got to hand it to the Dems for having the chutzpa to steal it in plain sight, too, as The Washington Times opines:
Strange things keep happening in Minnesota, where the disputed recount in the Senate race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken may be nearing a dubious outcome. Thanks to the machinations of Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie and a meek state Canvassing Board, Mr. Franken may emerge as an illegitimate victor.
Minnesota Democrats Exposed urges Colman to challenge the recount in court:
I start this post from the premise that U.S. Senator Norm Coleman was re-elected by the voters of Minnesota on November 4th, 2008. Along with numerous Minnesotans, I absolutely believe the Coleman received more votes than Franken on election day and that Coleman should be getting to work today on the start of his second term as a U.S. Senator.
But due to reasons listed below, Minnesota won’t have two U.S. Senators at the start of the 111th Congress.
I believe the decisions of the State Canvassing Board have been inconsistent and the entire recount process flawed and for the good of Minnesota, Coleman should formally contest the recount process in court. (read on).
I heartily agree. Coleman should not bow out, gracefully, and Republicans in congress need to block the seating of Franken. I want to see a full blown food fight erupt over this abomination.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Al Franken, whose razor-close victory in Minnesota faces legal challenges.yielded to Republican threats and agreed on Monday not to immediately seat fellow Democrat
Senate Republicans had planned to disrupt the opening of the new Congress on Tuesday by blocking Franken’s swearing-in.
And in another ugly fight, Senate Democrats vowed to block, at least for now, the seating of fellow party member Roland Burris whose appointment by embattled carries a whiff of political scandal.
Take a good look at that diaper Franken’s wearing in the photo. Imagine the stench emanating from that, and I think you’ll be closer to the mark.
