Seedy 16: Norm Coleman Battles the Supreme Court.

Norm Coleman is another March Badness veteran who is back for more. After coming this close to winning it all last year, Coleman is looking to lap the competition this year.

Coleman’s never-ending legal recount saga meant that US Senator Al Franken was not officially sworn in until July 2009. Eight months ticked away as Coleman’s blown engine of a legal battle stalled the seating our second US Senator.

Coleman’s opponent is the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. FEC, which reversed a century of law and granted business corporations First Amendment rights. Because of this, special interests are on the fast track to spending without limit in upcoming elections.

What’s worse: stalling Al Franken’s seating or fast tracking special interests? Vote now!
