Jeff Rosenberg, in his thoughts on the process, is indicating that neither Coleman nor Franken should be allowed to take the seat until the process is finally resolved:
Until all appeals are exhuasted, we should not seat either Franken or Coleman. This has been a contentious election to say the least, with cries of fraud from both sides. Our state election officials, and party leaders both in Minnesota in the Senate, must put public trust above partisan motivations. That means avoiding the appearance of trying to rush the final judgment. The legal appeals will be exhausted soon enough, and we will have sitting Senator.
