Democratic challenger Al Franken finds himself on the cusp of winning a seat in the United States Senate after Minnesota's canvassing board awarded him a host of challenged votes during deliberations on Thursday.
As of 8PM ET, the Minneapolis Star Tribune projected that Franken would finish the recount process with a lead of 89 votes,positioning him to become the 59th senator caucusing with Democrats in the upcoming Congress.
According to local paper tallies, Franken currently trails Sen. Norm Coleman by a mere five votes, down from the 358-vote margin that the Republican held just last night. The Associated Press has the count even closer, with Coleman ahead by two votes. An aide to Franken told the Huffington Post that, according to the campaign's internal count, Franken has already taken a small lead.
So, let me get this straight, they are going to keep counting until they get the results they want, divide it by the square root of the color blue and VOILA! We have a winner... I think it is a good idea at this point to begin breaking out my axe, because things like this are going to come to an end.
Ann Coulter has some good examples of how exactly the Democrat Party has, with this election in Minnesota, continued a history of stealing elections and subverting the will of the people.
