Alliance for a Better Minnesota Calls on Congress, FBI for Coleman Ethics Investigation
Saint Paul, Minn. – Alliance for a Better Minnesota (ABM) a grassroots lobbying and online organizing group that works with progressive groups, is calling on the Senate Select Committee on Ethics to look into allegations made in a lawsuit filing that U.S. Senator Norm Coleman had accepted cash gifts totaling $75,000.
ABM is also asking the Minneapolis Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into the matter, which according to court documents, meant Nasser Kazeminy – a Coleman donor and close friend – fraudulently ordered the payment of corporate funds that were not legitimate transactions.
“These are serious allegations. With all of the news media covering these lawsuits, which state that money was funneled to Norm Coleman, we need to know what actually happened. There should be a thorough, formal investigation,” said Denise Cardinal the Executive Director of Alliance for a Better Minnesota. “Minnesotans deserve to know the truth.”
ABM is also providing Minnesotans the chance to sign a petition to show the FBI and the Senate Select Committee on Ethics support for the investigation by visiting: http://pnmn.bluestatedigital.com/page/petition/Investigatenorm
