DSCC Spokesman: “I Applaud” Coleman For Creativity In Wanting Election Thrown out

DSCC communications director Eric Schultz just sent TPM this statement in response to the Coleman legal team’s suggestion that the election court throw out the whole election result:

“I’m sure Senator John McCain would like to throw out the results of November 4, 2008 as well. I applaud the Coleman campaign for their candor: at least after five weeks in court the Coleman camp is admitting they lost the election, and I also applaud them for their creativity – maybe next they’ll suggest aliens from Mars come down to make Norm Coleman Senator again – because that’s as far-fetched as asking for a revote when you lose an election. If Senator Coleman wants a revote, he can have one: in 2014 when Senator Franken’s first term expires.”
