Felons Voting Illegally May Have Put Franken Over the Top in Minnesota, Study Finds

A study finds that at least 341 convicted felons voted illegally in the election that made former "Saturday Night Live" comedian Al Franken a U.S. senator in 2008.

The six-month election recount that turned former "Saturday Night Live" comedian Al Franken into a U.S. senator may have been decided by convicted felons who voted illegally in Minnesota's Twin Cities.

That's the finding of an 18-month study conducted by Minnesota Majority, a conservative watchdog group, which found that at least 341 convicted felons in largely Democratic Minneapolis-St. Paul voted illegally in the 2008 Senate race between Franken, a Democrat, and his Republican opponent, then-incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman.

The final recount vote in the race, determined six months after Election Day, showed Franken beat Coleman by 312 votes -- fewer votes than the number of felons whose illegal ballots were counted, according to Minnesota Majority's newly released study, which matched publicly available conviction lists with voting records.

Furthermore, the report charges that efforts to get state and federal authorities to act on its findings have been "stonewalled."

"We aren't trying to change the result of the last election. That legally can't be done," said Dan McGrath, Minnesota Majority's executive director. "We are just trying to make sure the integrity of the next election isn't compromised."

The hits just keep on coming. Wanna bet that if Coleman had won, the Democrats would have run with this? There would be calls for investigations left and right. Democrats wouldn't know honesty if their life depended on it.

I hope that the Repubs go after crooked democrats like Rangel and others. None of this compassionate conservative crap. This just proves that our politicians are a bunch of bungling idiots. Felons voting and getting welfare checks in prison.:mad:

Franken should be removed from office and every close bill that he voted on should be null and void until a re vote. Our laws should matte,r but everybody is thumbing their noses at them. Obama laughs and taunts us.

can't happen. won't happen. Once the results are certified - they are effectively written in stone. Al is there until his term us up, he dies, or he gets caught with his pants down - and even then - he'd prolly be allowed to stay.
