No Election Certificate For Franken


"No Election Certificate for you!"

Awwwwwwwwww. Poor little coke head! Angry, bitter, tax-cheat, Al Franken was denied an Election Certificate for stealing the election. Bemidji Pioneer:

    The Minnesota Supreme Court today rejected Al Franken's demand to immediately become a U.S. senator.

    [...]

    Supreme Court justices today said there is no legal authority for them to order that a certificate be signed.

    "We conclude that there is no federal statutory mandate that a state issue a certificate of election by the date designated by Congress for the commencement of newly elected senators’ terms," the court wrote in an opinion released this afternoon. "And because the Senate has authority to seat a senator without a state-issued certificate of election, application of ... (a state law) does not usurp the Senate’s power and does not conflict with federal law, either statutory or constitutional."

Go snort a box of Count Frankencola, Al, you'll feel better. Well, a little bit better.
