One good reason to hope Franken pulls this out.
I thought you lived in Hungary or some such place. Why might you care where I live as long as it isn't in your neck of the woods?
Maintaining a lie is difficult due to the numerous possibilities for slip ups.
If and when I move to Costa Rica, the Republican party will be out one vote but I'll still be able to donate money to them and other reactionary forces dedicated to oppressing minorities and workers of all stripes.
My influence will probably be greater in Costa Rica than the US and so if you care at all for down trodden Costa Ricans, perhaps you should hope Franken loses and I remain here in Texas.
