Norm Coleman – a heaping helping of hypocrisy

Statement in November from Coleman when he called on Franken to concede the election:

It’s up to him whether such a step is worth the tax dollars it will take to conduct

And heck oh golly, he said at the time, if it were him, he’d step aside.  Because of the taxpayer expense, you see.  A recount would cost $90,000 or maybe even $120,000 of precious, sacred taxpayer dollars.

But that was then.  Now, he and his legal boys are pushing for a re-election at an estimated cost of $3 – 5 million dollars (of that same taxpayer money).

Why even mention, given that, the on-going expenses involved in the litigation of this matter which Coleman clearly intends to carry on as long as he can if only to keep the Dems from another Senate seat.

Pretty scummy fellow, Coleman.
