I'd say his staff admitting that MAS paid for his trip counts.

I can't imagine the stories that would be coming out if a Republican had something paid for by a group known to assist terrorism.

But then again, look at the hatred for Sarah Palin's new shoes.

MAS has been investigate, but no charges have been filed. They're a legal group here in Minnesota and across the country. If they had active ties to a terrorist organization, they'd be put out of business ASAP. Until then, no harm, no foul. MAS MN's devious, terrorism plots include holding interfaith picnics with the Minnesota Council of Churches and providing matrimonial services for local muslims. Scary stuff.

This thread's about Al Franken, but I'd be glad to discuss MAS and their connections to Hamas via their Muslim Brotherhood founders in another thread.

I read yesterday that the Coleman campaign got their paperwork filed for a review of the recount. Going to be interesting as to who can serve on the committee, as a number of key personnel are excluded since they served on the recount commission.

It can take quite some time for the Feds to file charges, they want all their ducks in a row before they do.

Actually, if they paid for a senator's trip, there is both harm and foul. It's illegal, according to the Senate's own rules. Of course, he'll just have to refund the cost, I imagine.

He's a congressman not a senator, and he cleared it with the house ethics committee before he went.

It's official:
Franken’s Win Bolsters Democratic Grip in Senate


Quote:
After nearly eight months of waiting, almost 20,000 pages of legal briefs, and millions of dollars in election costs, Al Franken emerged Tuesday as the next United States senator from Minnesota, ending one of the most protracted election recount battles in recent memory.

Mr. Franken, 58, a former comedian and author, could be seated in the Senate as early as Monday, leaders there said, providing Democrats with something they had long hoped for: 60 votes, and thus at least the symbolic ability to overcome filibusters.

I saw that on another forum and couldn't resist, but you know me and computers, I thought I was copying and pasting the link and the picture itself posted instead. Thank Tricia, sorry about that.

They're saying he's the first comedian to be elected to the Senate. I don't know, I think there are several Senators who are comedians.

He'll fit right in with the rest of the clueless twits.

It's about time that they settled that election.

I didn't vote for him, and unfortunately MN will soon find out the mistake they made in putting him in there. IMO all the back and forth hurt BOTH Coleman and Franken as MN opinions are not favorable to either one of them any more. We are stuck with him for the time being.

I just hope and pray we are not ruined totally by him in office.
