The NY Post’s Page Six has an interesting angle on the ACORN story–what was their role in Senator Franken’s razor thin victory over Coleman?  You can bet if this was a Republican scandal, the mainstream media would be all over it. Hopefully, the Minneapolis Star-Tribute will buck tradition and follow-up on this story.

EVEN the Democrats in Minnesota now realize their new US Sen. Al Franken was elected with the help of ACORN chicanery. The disgraced, pimp-friendly community organizing group claims it registered 43,000 new Minnesota voters. If just 1 percent were fraudulent but survived the recount process, that’s 430 votes, almost all cast for Franken, who won by just 312 votes. Asks Katherine Kersten in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, “Did ACORN folks pull some fast ones to help get their favorite son Franken elected — a win that handed Democrats the 60-vote, veto-proof majority that they needed to enact their liberal agenda?”
