Minneapolis - We all know that Chicago is the Corruption Capital of the Country, bar none, but now it appears Minneapolis wants a piece of that, too! And these guys always consider their wives, just in time for the Holidays.
The Twin-Cities/Pioneer Press reports that MN GOP State Senator Norm Coleman, is under federal investigation for ties to a money scandal involving at least one "ally." Norm also happens to be that guy who could be allegedly trying to swipe MN Senate Seat votes from our Al Franken (who should be the REAL Senator but has been forced into a hotly contested recount where Politico reported that Franken held a 4 point lead on December 5th and the Minneapolis-Star Tribune), also reported that 133 ballots were missing:
"Federal investigators are looking into allegations that a longtime friend and benefactor tried to steer money to U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman. Houston is where the first of two lawsuits was filed alleging Nasser Kazeminy, a Bloomington financier, tried to steer $100,000 to Coleman via his wife's Minneapolis employer. The second suit, filed in Delaware, alleges Kazeminy initially tried to get money directly to the senator.”
