Franken answer in contest and lawyers group responds to DFL complaint
The Franken campaign has filed its answer and counterclaims (17MB document) in the election suit brought by Norm Coleman after yesterday filing a motion to dismiss the suit. In other news, the Republican lawyers group that the Minnesota DFL party accused of illegally contributing to Norm Coleman's recount fund says it has not done so. Though fundraising letters have referred to the race, the group says the money it raises is not spent in coordination with the Coleman team but rather on communications with the press and the public about the race.
