U.S.: Norm Coleman drags the Minnesota Senate seat fight out – again

  • The Minnesota tradition in law [is] to enfranchise people, and their decision disenfranchises many Minnesotans whose votes have been wrongly rejected.
  • Norm Coleman • Who has bitterly fought Al Franken in a tightly-contested senate race that should have ended six months ago, considering it’s almost May. With just a couple hundred votes separating the two, Franken was declared winner in a court decision, but Coleman filed an appeal with the Minnesota Supreme Court. You know, we understand why Coleman’s fighting so hard, but there has to be a point where you just give it up out of respect for a state which hasn’t had proper representation for nearly four months. • source
