Norm Coleman is a former Republican United States senator.
He has two main claims to fame.
First, he summoned British anti Iraq war member of parliament, George Galloway, to the US senate, falsely accusing him of involvement in the Iraqi oil for food scandal. Galloway then made mincemeat of warmonger Coleman.
This video is called George Galloway Vs The US Senate (Full Video).
Second, after Coleman lost his seat in last year’s elections to his Democratic opponent Al Franken, he turned out to be a sore loser, starting endless procedures.
Now, Coleman gets a third claim to fame. It turns out that he is wanted by the FBI for corruption.

A walking gaffe machine in Arkansas
The Republicans only announced candidate running against Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) doesnt look at all ready for prime time.
Arkansas state senator Kim Hendren is drawing fire for referring to New York Sen. Chuck Schumer as that Jew during a speech with Pulaski County Republican party activists.
And after he drew criticism over the comment, his explanation to a popular Arkansas Republican blog sounded even more macaca.
At the meeting I was attempting to explain that unlike Sen. Schumer, I believe in traditional values, like we used to see on The Andy Griffith Show, Hendren told the Tolbert Report.
I made the mistake of referring to Sen. Schumer as that Jew and I should not have put it that way as this took away from what I was trying to say.”
He went on to say that he will be making many more verbal gaffes during the campaign.
Hendren is the only Republican currently in the race, though state senator Gilbert Baker and former US Attorney Tim Griffin are also mulling campaigns.
On paper, the Arkansas Senate seat would appear to offer Republicans a strong opportunity to win a Democratic-held seat. President Obama lost the state by 20 points and recent polling data suggest that Lincoln could face a tough reelection for a third term in 2010.
But Hendren doesn’t appear to be the candidate ready to give Lincoln a serious challenge.
Just now, following a defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Supreme Court, former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) officially conceded the 2008 Senate race and congratulated victor Al Franken. Pending certification of the election by Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty — and there is no longer any reason not to certify it — it’s finally over.
‘Bribe offered’ to probe leader
Thursday 07 June 2012
The sacked leader of an Australian probe into illegal payments to Iraq under the United Nations oil-for-food programme claims that he was offered a promotion to shut down the investigation.
Former policeman Ross Fusca alleges in a lawsuit against the federal police that when he was acting chief of the Oil for Food Taskforce in 2008 a superior officer offered him the bribe.
His superior told Mr Fusca that if he “could make the Oil for Food Taskforce go away he would be promoted,” according to court documents.
Mr Fusca claims that he did not respond to the offer and was demoted before quitting in 2010.
The task force was disbanded in 2009 without filing charges. Mr Fusca claimed that it wasn’t given the resources it needed and was closed too early.
Police commissioner Tony Negus claimed that it had been wound up on legal advice “that there was little chance this matter would be successfully resolved through a criminal investigation.”
