To celebrate the first anniversary of the Minnesota Supreme Court's decision that Al Franken won the 2008 Senate race, Franken attorney David Lillehaug said he will cast his absentee ballot in the 2010 race today.

Lillehaug, who spent months on end focusing on the 2009 absentee ballots around which the Senate contest rotated, said he would study his absentee ballot materials quite closely. Those materials were revamped in the wake of the Franken-Coleman race.

 

But, he said, he won't examine those materials quite as closely as he did the 2009 ballots.

"No one could," he said.

Franken, now Sen. Franken, is spending the day in the U.S. Senate judiciary committee at the confirmation hearing for U.S. Supreme Cout nominee Elena Kagan.
