Preacher, painter and prohibition activist Gene Amondson, best known for his runs as the U.S. presidential nominee for one faction of the Prohibition Party in 2004 and as the party’s de facto nominee in 2008, died yesterday surrounded by his four children after falling into a coma following a stroke. He was 65 years old.

Amondson was part of the Prohibition Party split in 2004 that led to two tickets. Although he received few votes, Amondson finished in third place in four Louisiana parishes, the best showing by a Prohibition Party candidate since 1960. The leader of the counter ticket, Earl Dodge, died in 2007 while campaigning for the party’s 2008 nomination, leaving no opposition to Amondson as the party’s leader.

He was strongly opposed to the sale of alcohol. As an activist, he filmed documentaries and held demonstrations supporting his cause.

Amondson made many appearances on television, including two visits to the Oprah Winfrey Show as a painter and was interviewed by Jon Stewart on the Daily Show during his 2004 run.

He was also interviewed by Wikinews in June 2008, during his second presidential campaign.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, July 25 at Amondson’s home town of Vashon Island, Washington.

Al Franken finally wins Minnesota Senate seat

Al Franken of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (affiliated with US Democratic Party), has formally won the United States Senate seat representing Minnesota, which had been contested ever since the November 4, 2008 election.

The Minnesota Supreme Court on Tuesday declared that Franken had won the most votes in the election and was entitled to have the election certified by Governor Tim Pawlenty. Pawlenty has said he will shortly sign the formal document.

Franken’s opponent, incumbent Norm Coleman of the Republican Party, quickly conceded after the court ruling. Coleman, in his concession, congratulated Franken and said, “The supreme court of Minnesota has spoken. I respect its decision and I will abide by its result.”

After a series of recounts, Franken had a lead of just 312 votes, which led Coleman’s campaign to challenge the fairness of the recount in the courts.

Franken gave a speech after his victory and stated: “I’m thrilled and honored by the faith that Minnesotans have placed in me. … We have a lot of work to do in Washington.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said that he expects Franken to be seated next week after the weekend, which is longer due to the upcoming Independence Day holiday.

President Barack Obama said, “I look forward to working with Senator-elect Franken to build a new foundation for growth and prosperity by lowering health care costs and investing in the kind of clean energy jobs and industries that will help America lead in the 21st century,”

Prior to entering politics, Al Franken was known for his work on Saturday Night Live and as host of The Al Franken Show on Air America Media, as well as for some film and literary work.
