FBI In Minnesota? Federal Investigation Tied to Colman

Remember how we told you two months ago about stories of Norm Colman supporter Nasser Kazeminy helping out the Senator by buying him suits and potentially funneling almost 100,000 dollars to his wife? If you don't just follow the links.

According to the Pioneer Press, the FBI remembers those allegations and has grown curious. Now, that they're done with the Gov. of Illinois they're investigating Nasser Kazeminy about his gifts to Minnesota's Senior Senator. I'm going to be mad if we go through the this recount simply to get an indicted senator.

From the PiPress:

Federal investigators are looking into allegations that a longtime friend and benefactor tried to steer money to U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman, the Pioneer Press has learned.

Agents with the FBI have talked to or made efforts to talk to people in Texas familiar with the allegations, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Houston is where the first of two lawsuits was filed alleging Nasser Kazeminy, a Bloomington financier, tried to steer $100,000 to Coleman via his wife's Minneapolis employer. The second suit, filed in Delaware, alleges Kazeminy initially tried to get money directly to the senator.

Of course, let's not jump to conclusions.
