continues to thumb his nose at at the law. MN deserves better representation.
Norm continues his tantrum and if I can't have it, no one will actions.
I see no reason why Franken should wait to begin his staff organization. Coleman is clearly trying to run as much of the clock out as he possibly can. Franken's office should be ready to open on the same day that Pawlenty is ordered to sign the election certificate by the MN SC.
says he can't plan to hire a state director? Or call himself "Senator-elect" after winning both the administrative recount and the election contest? Heck, Coleman's lawyers haven't even filed an intent to appeal the contest court's decision yet, so there's not even a pending appeal of the contest at this point.
Time for reality: Franken was elected.
Too late for Norm to step aside gracefully, but step aside he must.
You're doing exactly the right thing. Better to be prepared and ready to go WHEN you get to start being a senator. You've only won the election at least three times now...and I admire the fact that you are ready and raring to get started!!!
lol - If we ever elect a Republican again in this state (or probably anywhere) i will be shocked.
Can't we just drag this recount out for another 68 months?
Unlike Norm Coleman, whose only objective is to please the republican party and stroke his own ego, Al Franken is doing his best to prepare for serving the people. I, for one, am extremely grateful.
Coleman is dragging out filing his appeal, just to prolong Sen. Franken from being allowed into office
