Senator(?) Al Franken Plans Houston Visit

Senator (?) Al Franken

He’s been battling for a seat in the United States Senate, and later this month Minnesota Democrat Al Franken  is coming to Houston to raise money to help with a vote recount.

The fundraiser is scheduled for Tuesday, April 14th, 2009.

It’s being hosted by John  and Becca Cason Thrash, Ambassador Arthur Schechter and Attorney Richard Mithoff, among others.

The former Saturday Night Live comedian and former liberal radio talk show host narrowly defeated incumbent Republican Senator Norm Coleman in November.

But, questions about voter integrity were raised, and a three judge panel presiding over Senator Coleman’s lawsuit to overturn the election ruled it will examine 400 additional absentee ballots.

In an email to voters, Franken says he needs their “help more than ever  to preserve the victory we achieved together.”
