Groundhog Day - Franken Wins . . . again!

From the Court (PDF)
Franken received the highest number of lawfully cast ballots in the November 4, 2008 general election for United States Senator for the State of Minnesota and is entitled to receive the certificate of election.
Run, Forest Norm, Run, political impotence is only a supreme court appeal away!!

Joe at MPP has more details:
It was unanimous:
Those are the findings with the three well respected judges appointed to serve on the election contest panel. One appointed by a Democratic governor, one by a independent governor and one by a Republican governor. All agreed on the entire opinion. Any charges of bias are totally without merit.
Oh, and who pays:
Pursuant to Minn. Stat. 209.07, costs of the contest must be paid by the Contestants, and Contestee and the Court shall prove up the applieable costs by affidavit after all proceedings in this matter are concluded
Yeap, Norm has to pay Senator Elect Franken's costs as well. Poetic justice. I hope all those high buck GOP donors realized where their money was going!!
