The number who voted for Alan Stuart Franken, 58, for United States Senator was 1,212,431, give or take a few hundred. No one knows for sure. How many double-counted ballots did he get? How many felons' votes? Other illegals? How many votes (to the nearest thousand, please) did ACORN scrape up for him, tossing voter registration forms like confetti in Democratic strongholds?
To cap it off, how many “votes” did Franken's acolytes dig up after the election to cover Senator Norm Coleman's 725-vote advantage on election night? Enough, it seems.
Fraud not so much after Election Day, as before, might have thrust Franken into greatness -- er, the Senate. Unless a Hail Mary pass in final proceedings propels incumbent Senator Coleman back into the lead, fraud will have won. Period.
