Wonder what you would find if you frisked the six-month election recount that put “Saturday Night Live” comedian Al Franken into office as a U.S. senator?
Answer: The election may have been decided by convicted felons who voted illegally.
Liberals using corrupt electioneering? Never…
FOX News reports:
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.”
“What we did this time is irrefutable,” said [Dan McGrath, Minnesota Majority's executive director]. ”We took the voting lists and matched them with conviction lists and then went back to the records and found the roster lists, where voters sign in before walking to the voting booth, and matched them by hand.
“The only way we can be wrong is if someone with the same first, middle and last names, same year of birth as the felon, and living in the same community, has voted. And that isn’t very likely.”
The report said that in Hennepin County, which in includes Minneapolis, 899 suspected felons had been matched on the county’s voting records, and the review showed 289 voters were conclusively matched to felon records. The report says only three people in the county have been charged with voter fraud so far.
Good job Liberals and Democrats! By using your typical, corrupt-style of politics, you managed to elect a man who draws cartoons and sleeps during Senate hearings. I must say, he’s a real winner.
At least we know that banners are now hanging in the Minnesota ACORN offices saying: ”Mission Accomplished”.
