MN-Sen: Approaches $100,000 and Coleman Gets the Message

{First, a cheap plug for my blog Senate Guru.}, the effort to provide Republicans funding Norm Coleman's endless legal appeals with disincentive from continuing that funding, is about to reach the $100,000 threshold! For those unfamiliar with, basically, anybody who wants to see Coleman finally admit defeat and allow Minnesota to once again have two U.S. Senators can pledge $1 for every day that Coleman prolongs his legal challenges.

To show appreciation for helping progressives raise tens of thousands of dollars that will be used to defeat Republicans in 2010, representatives of the effort caught up with Coleman to personally thank him and to get his signature on the check representing the tens of thousands of dollars that Coleman's own obstinance has raised for progressives.

You can help the effort cross the $100,000 mark by visiting and chipping in. Just one dollar a day to make Norm Coleman go away!
