So, why Reid’s unseemly haste in Franken retreat?

Background here, here, and here. It’s odd, particularly since the time frame that Reid’s talking about is almost certainly going to be less time than it would take to actually resolve the election. Call me nuts, but it’s almost as if Senator Reid had been tipped the wink that somebody in Franken’s employ was about to find himself in trouble. Potentially campaign-ending trouble.

But I couldn’t possibly begin to speculate what that trouble could be.
