Coleman’s attorney Friedberg: ‘I would do anything for Norm, except vote for him’

Cute note on the Pioneer Press’ “Political Animal” blog on this quiet holiday Monday:

Joe Friedberg, a star local criminal attorney — one of the guys you’d hire if you did it — is Republican Norm Coleman’s lead attorney in the court battle to keep his Senate seat. But the blog notes that in an interview before the election, Friedberg, a Democrat, told the Pioneer Press: “I would do anything for Norm, except vote for him. And I’ve told him that.”
