"It is time for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to immediately seat Mr. Franken to ensure that Minnesotans have full representation in the U.S. Senate," McCollum, a Democrat from St. Paul, said in a statement.
McCollum, a Democrat, started one of Franken's biggest campaign controversies this summer when she raised concerns about his past writing and comedy concerning porn and rape. The Republicans couldn't get enough of the Democrats questioning their own candidate and took over the issue for their own good.
