Franken's Position on Democracy

Franken hopes to convince the three-judge panel that state law conveys limited authority for courts to review congressional elections. A court can verify the math of the recount and other technical decisions of the Canvassing Board, but it cannot explore claims of irregularities or election law violations, Franken's lawyers wrote.

No oversight of the democratic process? So, Mr. Franken, you disapprove of a legal election? I thought politicians were supposed to be smart enough not to say crap like that in public.
