FrankenCounting: "I'll STEAL the Damn Seat!"

The citizens of Minnesota are about to get thrown under the bus.

Franken attorney Marc Elias made the case to reporters Monday that as many as 1,000 absentee ballots were improperly disqualified and that the Senate or the courts may need to step in to resolve the issue.

...The U.S. Constitution allows each congressional chamber to be the "Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) called the Board of Canvassers' decision to not count the absentee ballots "a cause for great concern" last week, fueling speculation that the Senate would explore the legality of the Minnesota recount's results.

"If ultimately there is no remedy before the canvassing board or before the courts, then that is certainly an option," Elias said of the Senate's potential intervention in the election results

I call BS. That's not "an option." It's almost a certainty that Harry Reid & Co. will 'determine' that Franken won.

It will be interesting to see how Herbie Kohl and Rusty Feingold vote when it comes up, no?
