Court: Norm Coleman Owes Al Franken $95,000

Not just justice, but karmic justice.

A court ruled that Norm Coleman (R) owes Al Franken (D) $95,000 for the U.S. Senate trial, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

"Coleman owes the cash because Minnesota law dictates that the loser pay the winner's court costs in an election contest. Because Coleman sued to overturn Franken's lead, he owes Franken's costs."

A Coleman spokesman said the campaign "wouldn't pay the costs until the state Supreme Court rules on the appeal. That decision means the $95,000 will tick up for each day it remains unpaid."
In addition, Coleman's bull-headed attempt to drag this out, and leave the Senate short another Democrat has helped to raise over $150,000 for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee PAC with the "$1 A Day Until Norm Coleman Goes Away" fundraiser.

Thanks Norm.
