So I have been looking through some blogs and other information sources, and apparently with everything else going on that I've been paying attention to, I've missed ethics allegations brought against Norm Coleman this election season. Apparently gifts below $250 to Senators do not have to be disclosed. Also, apparently somebody is trying to build up some favors from Norm Coleman. This clip is pretty ridiculous. Clearly all gifts above $250 are most likely (though we can't know for sure) reported, the question is about gifts below $250, which wouldn't be disclosed. There are only 100 Senators in the United States. It is an elite position. If you cannot be honest with the Americans who gave you this honorable position, then there is a problem. Again, I may be extremely critical of our represented officials, but I also believe it is absolutely necessary that we are.
We need actual change in Congress, and the only person running for Minnesota Senate who will do this is Dean Barkley.
