Minnesota Supremes rule: No U.S. Senate election certificate for Franken

The Minnesota Supreme Court today decided that Democrat Al Franken has no right to an election certificate — which would pave the way for Franken to immediately join the U.S. Senate — before the end of Republican Norm Coleman's court case.

"We conclude that neither state nor federal law requires issuance of a certificate of election before the election contest is completed; we deny the petition," the Supreme Court wrote in a unanimous opinion released today.

Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, a Democrat and Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a Republican, have said that state law bars a Senate candidate from receiving an election certificate when there is a contested election.

The decision comes as Coleman and Franken are still wrangling in court over who got the most votes in the long-running race. Franken has a 225-vote lead.

applaud

This election is a pure farce! Franken has had them pull all sorts of illegal stuff to steal it!

Congrats to the Dem. Sec. of State, Repub. Gov. and the Minnesota Supreme Court in taking a stand against that illegal attempt at a certificate of election before the election contest is completed!

Minn. needs to have a new election since they have included illegal ballots to be included in the count!

A new election would cost a fortune and turnout would be rather low as the average person doesn't care about the Senate (that's why midterm elections have such little turnout). Regardless of who ends up winning (it will probably be Franken) it won't matter. Franken won't give the Democrats a supermajority in the Senate but they will still have a majority.


Coming Soon: A better signature!
