The GOP leadership is stepping up their public appeals for everyone to help Norm Coleman keep this trial going. The Coleman camp has posted this YouTube, featuring prominent Capitol Hill Republicans asking for donations:
“I’m proud of Norm and his perseverance,” says Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), who is currently the head of the NRSC. “I’m proud that he is willing to continue to fight hard to represent the people of Minnesota, and to make sure that their votes count. And we want him back.”
Keep in mind that this lawsuit has made sure that not only is Norm Coleman not representing the people of Minnesota — but nobody is, because the Republicans have blocked any idea of seating Al Franken provisionally. And as a result, the voters of Minnesota don’t count as much as other states in the Senate.
