.......there's any such thing as an "honest politician", democrat or republican. They all seem to have skeletons in the closet. I'm depressed.
As my dear departed dad always said, "All polititions are so crooked they can't sleep in bed straight".
They should demand their money back. He refuses to vote to expand drilling and he is a co-sponsor of Cap and Trade legislation - he has to be one of the most anti-energy Senators out there.
If the allegations in this story are correct, Sen. Coleman should be ashamed of himself and should not run for re-election and instead should go and get a job with the oil companies.
for a guy getting money from big oil before I would vote for someone getting money from PFLAG.
accepting $210,000 from oil and gas company interests.
$35,000 a year? This is nothing. Why is this a story?
If Rev Wright, is a distraction, so is this!
Why the money is a big deal, Startribune? YOu guys shoud go chasing Obama becasue he is the top fundraiser.
And yet Coleman voted against drilling in ANWR. Shows the oil companies aren't getting much for their money.
Tax breaks? The US Oil Companies pay over $100 BILLION DOLLARS per year to the government in royalties and taxes ... and that doesn't include the billions it collects from consumers for the government.
