Itâ€™s all but official: A professional Democrat clown will join all the amateur ones already in the Senate.
Al Franken is going to Washington:
Democrat Al Franken will be declared the winner of the tight U.S. Senate contest in Minnesota, emerging from a ballot recount with a slim margin over Republican Norm Coleman, state officials said on Sunday.
But Coleman, the incumbent, has asked Minnesotaâ€™s supreme court to require that a few hundred additional absentee ballots be included in the recount â€” and he could then ask the court to investigate the contest all over again.
â€œAt the moment, Franken has a 225-vote lead,â€ after the weekend counting of what were deemed the last uncounted absentee ballots, said Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, a Democrat who oversaw the process.
Ritchie said unless the supreme court acts on Colemanâ€™s request and orders more ballots to be counted, he will reconvene the stateâ€™s Canvassing Board on Monday to certify Franken as the winner of the November 4 contest.
Remember the voters in Minnesota elected Jesse “The Body” Ventura to a disastrous term as their Governor.
Minnesota deserve who they vote for – what a joke!
