    Did ACORN Help Franken Steal His Senate Seat?

    Many people think Al Franken stole his Senate seat. Franken won by the razor thin margin of 312 votes out of about 3 million cast. ACORN claims to have registered 43,000 new voters in Minnesota. With ACORN's record, it is hard to say how many of those are legitimate. Many of these "newly registered voters" may have voted illegally. Minnesota's laws on proof of voter eligibility are notoriously loose.

    From the Minnesota Star-Tribune:

    But ACORN does have a special place in its heart for at least one prominent Minnesota politician. Last year, it showered praise on Al Franken, endorsing his run for the U.S. Senate. Franken returned the esteem: "I'm thrilled and honored to receive this endorsement," he gushed in a press release. He added that he was "more motivated than ever to work with ACORN."

    Too bad that Minnesota race never received any kind of scrutiny by the proper officials and his overly-manicured opponent.




    :rolleyes:

    I'd say probably, but the election and recount process is all over and Frankenstein is the Senator.

    Aaaahh Dude... I don't have any beef with you, so this is just friendly FYI, it's "AGAINST THE RULES" to change what a person says in his/her quote. Better "fix it" again.... :eusa_eh:

    No matter how I feel about the idiot, I'm pretty sure it's against the rules to alter what a poster said as if they'd said it, when they didn't.
