Minnesota Court Rules for Al Franken

200px-Frankenidiot.jpgThis afternoon the Minnesota Supreme Court unanimously decided that comedian, author, and Minnesota Senate candidate Al Franken should receive the election certificate that would give him a seat in the United States Senate –ruling that Franken won the highly-contested race.

According to the Star Tribune, the ruling upheld a lower court’s decision rejecting Republican Norm Coleman‘s claims that he had unfairly lost the close election last fall. Franken is the author of bestselling political books like “Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right” and “Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot”

Here’s the court’s ruling: “Franken received the highest number of votes legally cast and is entitled [under Minnesota law] to receive the certificate of election as United States Senator from the State of Minnesota.”
