And still we wait for a US Senate result

It is nearer six months than five that the United States went to the polls to elect a new President, all the members of its House of Representatives and one third of its Senators yet the final results are still not in with the Senate ballot for the state of Minnesota being disputed in the courts. After many counts and recounts, the Democrat candidate, Al Franken, beat the Republican Norm Coleman by 312 votes but Coleman, not surprisingly given the closeness of the result, appealed to the State Supreme Court. A decision is expected shortly but a further appeal to a Federal Court seems likely whatever the result.
