George Soros Funding Al Franken's Recount Efforts

Left-wing billionaire George Soros is hosting a fundraiser on Thursday night to help Democrat Al Franken win the recount in Minnesota’s Senate election.

The gathering at Soros’ Manhattan home will raise money to help Franken’s campaign cover the cost of monitoring the statewide recount.

“The special guest: Al Gore, who knows a thing or two about recounts,” the New York Post reports.

Republican Sen. Norm Coleman leads Franken by just over 200 votes at last count, out of 2.9 million cast. The results of the hand recount are not expected to be released until mid-December.

Coleman remains confident. His spokesman Mark Drake said: “This race will not be decided by New York billionaires or the U.S. Senate. It will be decided by Minnesotans, and we are confident Sen. Coleman will prevail.”

Earlier this year Soros’ fortune was estimated at $9 billion.
