Franken needs dough to do this


Message from In These Times reader Agit: TO ALL AL FRANKEN SUPPORTERS: Al is asking for contributions so that he can put staff on location in every precinct throughout Minnesota for the recount. The recount is mandatory by Minnesota state law and is financed by the state. However, placing watchers on location will be costly. Big state, many precincts. The opposition will surely do the same. For the sake of seeing every proper vote counted properly and the proper candidate [Al Franken!!!!] take his rightful place in the Senate, please step up now and help the Democrats take another seat away from the Republicans. See the website at Last report has Franken down by only 229 votes.
