Reid can apparently see into the future because he just told us that not only will Coleman definitely lose his court challenge, he will never ever run again for a MN Senate seat, and if he does, he’ll lose.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid offered the toughest language he has ever used in arguing that Norm Coleman’s career in the Senate is finished.
“Norm Coleman will never ever serve [again] in the Senate,” Reid told Politico’s Manu Raju. “He lost the election. He can stall things, but he’ll never serve in the Senate.”
Al Franken was declared the winner today by the state’s Canvassing Board in the closely-contested Minnesota Senate race, defeating Sen. Norm Coleman by 225 votes. Coleman’s campaign has said it is contesting the result, preventing Franken from receiving an election certificate until all the legal challenges are resolved.
Reid added that he will not be trying to seat Franken in the Senate on Tuesday. When asked if Franken would be sworn in tomorrow, Reid said: “No.”
Of course we know for a definite fact Franken will serve eventually, and Coleman will “never ever” serve in the Senate; Lord Reid has decreed it.
More on the Senator Coleman’s challenge of the tainted recount at Minnestoa Democrats Exposed, where an excellent point is made:
In Minnesota, a victory margin of less than one-half of 1 percent triggers a recount. That’s ridiculous, because the process that followed resulted in even less than a one-half of 1 percent margin for the victor.
