PETTERS' POLITICAL GIVING
What a surprise to see Norm at the top of this list.
With assets seized and plentiful minority interests likely on the block this comes at a bad time. I'd be lookin' at short sale transactions prior to the mess:-)
A girl i know always raved about how generous Dear Tom was at all the social gatherings and "fund raisers" she and her Petters employed husband attended. The more i think about it, the more she tried always trashing others money issues to divert attention, i mean after all how could she not have known....as long as her husband brought home more bacon ...was ok. I just get so blown away Petters having the nerve to act so "holy" and generous while being so deceptive. It earned him such favor. Now the question is how many big dogs will be brought down, as i can guarantee more out there that reaped benefits KNOWING dang well wrong. Big trips, lavish spending......SICK
poor employees that were innocent and especially the sun country crew
Not sure you can draw those conclusions or glee from the fact that Coleman is at the top of the list, Olaf.
Nor, do I think charleybrowns can assume his friend necessarily knows anything unless they were placed in the inner circle of the company.
Petters is just another severe misuse of trust and involves a lot of good people and a handful of bad ones. Sort of a modern day Gatsby.
I hope he enjoys his prison life. He will have plenty of time to reflect.
Your precious Amy Klobuchar is sitting right there at #2. So let's not start slinging mud at Norm when I see several off your fellow lefties on the list.
But I suppose bleeding-heart liberals like yourself need to grasp for whatever you can on Coleman so that you can try to push for the nut job socialist, Al Franken, into office. Get a life.
Leave Norm and Pawlenty alone you stupid democrats, all the biggest spenders of all, so many give away programs in this swing state we still are paying for because of you. No matter what Norm and Tim do, you'll always condemn.
Get a life you losers
Wow first Norm Coleman votes to bailout his Wall Street buddies, then we find out he is getting free $1000.00 suits from Neiman Marcus, and now its campaign contributions from the fraudster Tom Petters.
Al Franken didn't get one penny from Petters and he was against the bailout. At least we have one choice for a politican who will fight for Minnesotans.
FYI .. I am hardly a "leftie," thank you very much. But, I have no patience for political opportunists like Norm Coleman. He's only a Republican because of his own greedy political ambition. Norm Coleman WAS a Democrat and hung with the "lefties" before his conversion. Check the historical facts buddy. Your "born again" extremist, right wing pal Norm is going to lose on November 4. I know the truth is a hard thing to accept but just deal with it.
