He’s not saying.
Is Norm Coleman under investigation in connection with the claims made in a lawsuit alleging that a longtime supporter, Nasser Kazeminy, used an insurance company that employs Coleman’s wife to illegally pass money to Coleman?
Last month, a Minnesota good-government group sent letters to the FBI and the Senate ethics committee, calling on both to investigate the charges. Coleman quickly responded by declaring in a statement:
I not only welcome such an investigation, but I am eager to have it move forward immediately.
That forthright response made us wonder whether Coleman — who currently is locked in a knife-edge recount with Democrat Al Franken to hold onto his Senate seat — might already have been contacted by investigators, and was trying to get out ahead of the news by appearing to welcome a probe.
