Citizen Franken Goes To Washington

The Minnesota Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that Al Franken has defeated Norm Coleman to become U.S. Senator from the great state of Minnesota. The court held:
The question presented on appeal is whether the trial court erred in concluding that Al Franken received the most legally cast votes in the election for United States Senator. Because we conclude that appellants have not shown that the trial court‟s findings of fact are clearly erroneous or that the court committed an error of law or abused its discretion, we affirm.
(Coleman v Franken). Much has been written about this election, so enough said.

UPDATE: Senator Al Franken was sworn in Tuesday, July 7, 2009.
