The Minnesota Supreme Court has unanimously decided that Al Franken won the US Senate election in Minnesota last fall. Good.
But my very cursory glance at the decision does not find any ruling on the appropriate remedy. In other words, Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, who is probably going to run for President and is not running for re-election, will take his orders from the RNC, and might still say that he doesn’t agree, and refuse to sign the election certificate. So then there might have to be ANOTHER lawsuit to order Pawlenty to issue the certificate (and I don’t know Minnesota mandamus law well enough to know who wins that.).
This should be over. The Minnesota voters have decided. The law is clear. None of this has ever mattered to Republicans.
UPDATE: Maybe my worst prediction ever, and I am glad about that (although strictly speaking I was talking about Pawlenty). Coleman has conceded, and Franken will become a US Senator. Great!
