It’s nearly March and the trial into the challenge over last year’s US Senate seat from Minnesota is a month old; legal experts give former Senator (he’s finished his term) Norm Coleman little to slim to no chance of retaining his seat, yet Coleman continues to grasp at straws. Â When Franken was down by less than 200 in the recount, Coleman said if the situation were reversed, he would have conceded. Â Yet, being a bald-faced liar, Coleman continues to hang in there.
From the Minneapolis Star Tribune today:
“It’s very hard, the way it’s set up right now, for him to be able to win,” said David Schultz, a Hamline University law professor specializing in elections.
“Very slim,” was how Duke University law Prof. Guy-Uriel Charles characterized Coleman’s current chances.
“Coleman is in a bubble running out of oxygen,” said Lawrence Jacobs, a University of Minnesota political science professor.
Give it up Norm. Â You lost. Â Time to put Senator Al Franken to work for the people of Minnesota and America.
