'Daily Voting News' for June 30, 2009 TN SOS weasel, Coleman concedes, Ill Recount, CA I-vote
Edited on Tue Jun-30-09 07:18 PM by WillYourVoteBCounted
As is so often the case, just when everyone had given up all hope of some resolution of the issue, the MN Supreme Court ruled unanimously to affirm the election contest decision made by a lower court and reject the appeal of the non-prevailing candidate, Norm Coleman. In another violation of expectations, Coleman conceded the November 2008 U.S. Senate race to Al Franken.
