It’s shameful, I know! But it’s what you get when you’re dealing with a Republican. They can’t be faulted, nor are you allowed to tell them they’re wrong. Meanwhile, they’ll do anything, including whoring out their wives to Iranian businessmen to keep in power, to be kept in fancy suits and to continue to kick our children in the teeth when it comes to health care.
This re-count stuff isn’t about Minnesota for Norm Coleman. It’s all about Norm Coleman!
Norm, who used to be useful to Minnesota, when he was a Democrat, has turned into the hateful drunken old man who’ll file frivolous lawsuits just to keep in power. It’s disgusting.

COLEMAN CAMPAIGN TRIES TO DISENFRANCHISE MINNESOTANS
Another Coleman Lawsuit Makes It Clear: Norm Coleman Doesn’t Want All The Votes To Be Counted
Saint Paul [11/08/08] – In a shameful effort to deprive Minnesota voters of their civil rights, the Coleman campaign today went to court in an attempt to block 32 absentee ballots from being counted.Communications Director Andy Barr:
“Our position is simple: Count every vote fairly. Ever since the routine process of canvassing to ensure that every vote is counted began, the Coleman campaign has been attempting to obstruct it. And, in typical fashion, they have now gone to court to shut down the count. This stealth attack on an early Saturday morning is a disgusting attempt to disenfranchise voters who did nothing wrong, and we will fight hard on behalf of Minnesotans who deserve to have their voices heard.”
Anyone surprised? These people are shameless.
Shameless indeed. A copy of the injunction (PDF) can be seen here.
This picture came from my friend Tilde… She’s so hot. If she were a guy, I would totally make out with her.
At first, he complained that this recount was a waste of taxpayer money. Then he files a lawsuit against Al Franken for the media’s discovery of Norm’s wife taking money from Iranian businessman, and now he’s filing this lawsuit because “HE LOVES US MINNESOTANS!!!”
From the Neocon’s castle come Michael B. Brodkorb, their court jester:
COLEMAN FOR U.S. PRESS RELEASE: “AS THE FRANKEN CAMPAIGN AND ITS OUTSIDE GROUP SUPPORTERS ATTEMPT TO UNDERMINE THE CANVASSING PROCESS, THE COLEMAN CAMPAIGN SEEKS TO PROTECT MINNESOTANS’ LEGAL RIGHT AND PRESERVE AN ORDERLY PROCESS TO ENSURE THAT EVERY LEGAL VOTE IS PROPERLY COUNTED”
ST. PAUL – The Coleman for Senate Campaign released the following statement today after it became evident that Franken Campaign and outside groups attempt to improperly influence canvassing process.
Campaign Manager Cullen Sheehan:
“Not content to allow the recount process to move forward as prescribed by law, the Franken Campaign and its supporters are attempting a campaign of undue influence. The increasing questions about unexplained and improbable shifts in vote counts, coupled with Franken Campaign antics over the past 24 hours, compelled us to seek legal action to protect the rights of Minnesota voters. We had an election. Senator Coleman won. And we now must have a legal and transparent process conducted in the light of day – and that is our goal and intent.
“Late last night, after another unexplained shift in votes occurred when the Secretary of State’s Office closed, new ballots have suddenly appeared from a heavily Democratic precinct. These ballots have been unsecure since the election, yet the Franken Campaign is demanding they be stuffed into the ballot box, attempting to change a vote count that was already finished. Minnesota election laws provide specific rules for reviewing and counting ballots. Today’s legal proceeding is an effort to ensure that a transparent and orderly process be in place. The Franken Campaign should be joining us in this action, not seeking to push the process outside the bounds of the law.”
Huh?! They won?!? What did they win?! By Minnesota law, the only thing they won was a recount of the votes!
And don’t you just love that last sentance there? “Franken you see, should be joining us in this action…by just saying Norm Coleman won.”
What a bunch of pompous ass-hats.
Norm Coleman doesn’t understand. The people of Minnesota elected Secretary of State, Mark Ritchie to do his job. He, and all of the election officials are doing a bang-up job as best they can. But Norm doesn’t see it that way. In a vote that triggers a Minnesota Law to recount the ballots, he whines that it’s a waist of taxpayer money. And now, he’s filing lawsuits to keep ballots from being counted…at the taxpayers’ expense.
