    Ah yes... Norm Coleman.

    This is the jerk who got the "Rove treatment" from the GOP in a desperate attempt to defeat Paul Wellstone in the '02 midterms. Or, that is, before Wellstone took the lead in the polls and suddenly and conveniently died in a plane crash shorty after the Iraq vote and shortly before the elections...

    Texas Businessman Files Lawsuit Claiming He Was Forced To Funnel $75,000 To Norm Coleman’s Wife»

    A lawsuit alleges that one of Sen. Norm Coleman’s (R-MN) best friends and supporters, Nasser Kazeminy, used a Texas-based oil-rig services company to funnel $75,000 to Coleman through his wife Laurie’s insurance firm. Paul McKim, who filed the lawsuit and who until last Friday was CEO of Deep Marine Technologies (DMT), says Kazeminy — who owns about 50 percent of the company — threatened to fire him if he did not agree to the deal. The lawsuit alleges Kazeminy explicitly sought to benefit Sen. Coleman:

    In March 2007, Kazeminy began ordering the payments of corporate funds to companies and individuals who tendered no goods or services to DMT for the stated purpose of trying to financially assist United States Senator Norm Coleman of Minnesota. In March 2007, Kazeminy telephoned B.J. Thomas, then DMT’s Chief Financial Officer. In that conversation, Kazeminy told Mr. Thomas that “U.S. Senators don’t make [expletive deleted]” and that he was going to find a way to get money to United States Senator Norm Coleman of Minnesota and wanted to utilize DMT in the process.​


    Deep Marine Technology provides “comprehensive subsea services to the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry” and is “a significant player in the Gulf of Mexico,” according to its website. Coleman is a strong proponent of offshore drilling.

    A video shows Coleman ducking questions about the suit from Minnesota Star Tribune reporters on Wednesday. Coleman called the suit’s claims “false and defamatory,” but today, McKim produced records documenting the payments to Laurie Coleman’s firm, Hays:

    Real Clear politics has Coleman slightly ahead, but still considers the state a toss up.. with that being said, feel bad for the minnesotans for the choices they have to make in this election.

    It's amazing how they haven't even started a recount yet, and Franken has somehow made up about 500 votes. I'm sure the people in here who cry about election fraud, will be on this like a fly on....nah...

    Franken now just 206 votes behind

    Anyone know how many voter registrations ACORN submitted in Minny? I'm guessing this election result gets U-L-G-Y. Supreme Court anyone? Why is counting votes, or certifying a persons legitimacy to vote, so difficult in this country? I dunno where everyone else lives, but where I voted, it was a black marker, and connect the dots. I think 1st graders learn to do that.

    I hope Franken wins those a$s holes deserve him, the only way the American people will truly see what "Far Left Wing Anti American Socialism" really stands for is to elect them all, from Obama right down to Franken, then watch them try to Censor, Rape and destroy our Freedoms, watch them send your young people off to die in some third world sh!t hole (darfur) watch them try to take your gun away, watch them try to destroy our culture, watch the dirty scumsucking bastards try to kill Santa Claus because he offends Muslims, elect these scum then the people will see what they really stand for and they won't get elected to anything again for the next thousand years.

    YOU NOW HAVE A SWEET TALKING CREEPY PRESIDENT WHO HAS VERY STRANGE DANGEROUS FRIENDS AND A PRESIDENT WHO VERY WELL MAY TURN INTO ANOTHER CHAVEZ, CASTRO OR A NO KOREA PING PONG.

    (Racists and the MTV kids elected this president)

    GOD DAMN AMERICA (words spoken by a man who our new president called "uncle")

    Of course 1st graders do. It would be unethical for ACORN to connect the dots for the first graders when they registered them to vote.:D
