Franken: 2010 Senate races could be as close as mine in 2008
The Hill ^ | Oct. 22, 2010 | Michael O'Brien

Posted on 10/22/2010 1:15:05 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on Friday asked Democrats to provide more donations to his colleagues, warning that several of his fellow Democratic senators could end up reprising the months-long recount that kept him from taking his Senate seat.

Franken wrote in a fundraising e-mail for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) that some of his colleagues — like Sens. Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Russ Feingold (Wis.) or Patty Murray (Wash.) — could end up in races that are determined by just a few votes.

"Barbara Boxer, Russ Feingold, Patty Murray: Any of these great Democrats could end up in a race as close as mine," Franken wrote. "Any of these 15 races could swing the Senate majority. And that means even a small contribution could make a very big difference."

Franken won the 2008 Minnesota race against incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman (R) by only 312 votes. The final tally was approved only after an extensive, drawn-out recount that was litigated in court for months. It took Franken until July 9, 2009, to be sworn in.

“and it takes a lot of money to perpetrate fraud on that level, so make sure you donate NOW!”

Makes me sick.

In other words, a GOP victory that requires massive fraud.

This is GREAT NEWS!!!

If the whole Congress is tied up in recounts and contests, then the lame-duck session is dead-on-arrival.

We might need some liberal judges to come in and insure that the vote is being counted right and that the right people are winning. :)

If Franken can’t fire up the conservative base to make sure that kind of travesty doesn’t happen again anywhere, nothing will.

No, they won't be that close-the pollsters are greatly underestimating the extent of this tidal wave.

This is going to surpass 1994!

I wonder if Franken contributed any donations to his RAT colleagues.

I hope not. Blow them out where they’re close, don’t give them the opportunity to steal an election.

Dear Dems: We will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. Don’t even think about it.

In his case, they should have just had a re-vote. With the crap he and his fellow democrats pulled, I think he would have lost by double digits after ticking thinking people off.
