The Minnesota Supreme Court has denied Al Franken’s motion to have the disputed election results certified, which would have paved the way for him to be seated in the U.S. Senate. The legal battle continues.
Norm Coleman legal spokesman Ben Ginsburg offered the following reaction:
“The Minnesota Supreme Court’s decision is a victory for Minnesota Law and Minnesotans. This wise ruling will ensure that Harry Reid, Al Franken and Chuck Schumer cannot short-circuit Minnesota Law in their partisan power play.
“We have proven that there are serious issues with the vote count in this election. There remain thousands of wrongly rejected ballots that must be counted. There are hundreds of votes that have been counted twice. And, the Contest Court’s Friday the 13th ruling now has created a new set of rules so that potentially thousands of similar illegal votes are included in the current election day and recount totals. The court must resolve these potentially fatal problems if the court is to fulfill its obligation to certify the number of ‘lawfully cast ballots’ for each candidate.
“Despite Al Franken’s efforts to disenfranchise thousands of Minnesota voters, Norm Coleman is committed to ensuring a legal and fair election. This ruling stops the Franken/Reid/Schumer power play in its tracks, and puts the decision back in Minnesota where it belongs.”
