OK, this is bull:
Where to begin?
How about with Coleman’s opening words: “Al Franken’s 11th-hour attack …”
There is zero proof that Franken had anything to do with DonorGate, which the Pioneer Press noted today. The Coleman campaign has provided nothing indicating otherwise.
“Phony accusations filled with lies delivered anonymously to a Minnesota paper before being filed in a Texas court.”
The Strib has denied receiving the lawsuit before its filing, and the plaintiff’s lawyer has denied sending it. There’s still some question as to whether the Strib received some other kind of documentation; it appears they did. I’m still running that down. But Coleman’s camp has offered no evidence the accusations are phony, much less that Franken is linked to them. But Coleman’s campaign has provided no source, proof or clarity on this point, and I’ve asked. It’s their allegation.
“The vicious personal attack on my wife.”
Sigh. The suit targets Coleman donor Nasser Kazimeny, for a scheme he allegedly concocted with Laurie Coleman’s employer. That’s not an attack on her, but on a donor and an employer. I understand Coleman’s tactical imperative, but it deserves hearty mocking nevertheless.
“This time, Al Franken has crossed the line …”
