It took truped up allegations days before the election to steal this for Franken. Dont think this topic cost Coleman 325 votes? Yeah, right. My neighbor's kid was a DFL campaign staffer. They (DFL) were jumping for joy the night BEFORE these allegations hit the papers. He was proud to tell everyone how big this was going to be. I'll give him this.... it WAS big enough to cost Coleman 325 or so votes. Its this sort of stuff that makes politics pathetic at times.

Franken got what he wanted by having someone else file this just before the election. Nice to see the news that this suit has ended received front page news rather than buried deep inside what is left of the Strib.

"There was never, never, ever anything involved in this that had anything to do with my wife or me in terms of any monies being traded. Nothing,'' Coleman said. "And yet the allegations played out and the election is over and now the suit goes away and I'm glad it has.'', This case will come back and haunt Coleman.

Hays has admitted receiving the money, admit there was no insurance policy or services provided by them to Deep Marine. Such a simple question but no one has answered it. Seems rather far fetched that someone would just give 75 Grand to another company or person without expecting something in return. This case has lasted far too long but yet let's hear what Hays Co. did with the money they admitted receiving. Rather simple I would think.

Obama didn't cause this mess. He's fixing it. Were you in a coma the prior 8 years? Blank Check book? Have you looked at where Bush's Record deficit went? To IRAQ and tax cuts to the wealthy. That's historical fact here folks. Me angry isn't a debate. Coleman lost because he is a creep who is who you want him to be to stay an elected politician period. That's Norm. You will get your chance to cast a vote for him for Governor.

"'There was never, never, ever anything involved in this that had anything to do with my wife or me in terms of any monies being traded. Nothing,' Coleman said." Then why wouldn't you prefer to see your name cleared, instead of being happy this was swept under the rug? Here's a bit of advice, Nerm: Don't run for office in Minnesota ever again.

Truly criminal Coleman is a snake, slithering his way to Texas perhaps, home to huge nests of sickly things.

Excuse me? - Kazeminy is able to squash the lawsuit by a corporate restructuring which eliminates McKim's standing to suit, and that is supposed to be the end of the matter? Despite early denials of cash tranfers by both the Hays Company and the Coleman camp when this story first broke, both sides now agree that money was transferred to the Hays Company, yet no identifiable services were rendered? I guess we can only hope the FBI will eventually issue a report on their investigation, because there are too many unanswered questions (WHAT happened to the money?). This is some shoddy reporting...
