Federal court keeps Coleman's bid alive

A three-judge Federal panel has rejected a bid by presumptive Minnesota Senator-elect Al Franken to block a lawsuit by incumbent Norm Coleman over alleged irregularities in the recount which gave Franken his apparent victory.

Franken has been certified as the winner by some 225 votes after a recount wiped out a slightly larger Coleman lead in the original tally.

Coleman claims that hundreds of absentee ballots were improperly rejected, and that a significant number of Franken votes were counted twice. The famous Democratic desire that "all the votes be counted" turns out- unsurprisingly- to be rather selective.

The trial on Coleman's suit begins Monday.
