Unable to win, ex-GOP senator calls for election results to be 'set aside'

E-mail Print PDF

If at first you don't succeed, change the rules.

That's the approach of would-be incumbent Minnesota Republican senator Norm Coleman, who has now called for recent Senate election results to be "set aside."

Coleman has been deadlocked in a recount with Democratic challenger and comedian Al Franken, who until recently was the host of a nationally syndicated talk show. Franken and Coleman's lawyers have repeatedly tangled over how the recount should be held and which votes should be counted. Increasingly byzantine, even veteran political observers have given up trying to follow the case. Many believe Franken will eventually prevail.

Apparently frustrated that his election has not been won in court, Coleman lawyer Jim Langdon wrote a three-judge panel overseeing the case that the situation was simply so dire that the election results should be forgotten.
