Last session's senior senator from Minnesota Norm Coleman, still battling Al Franken to be seated in the Senate, has taken a paid job as a consultant to the Republican Jewish Coalition, which harshly attacked Obama last fall, its executive director, Matt Brooks, said.
Coleman will join the group as a "consultant and strategic advisor," and will also travel the country fundraising on the group's behalf, Brooks said.
"It's an opportunity for him to, now that he's got some down time on his hands, to really help us while this case is being adjudicated," Brooks said. "He hasn't given up at all" on retaking the Minnesota seat.
Since Coleman is now seeking new employment, perhaps we can go ahead and seat Franken today.
