Coleman: My trial is way more important than Law & Order, but really boring
"What you're observing out there may not seem as exciting as what you see on Law & Order," said Coleman. "But the principles that we're fighting for, that I fully believe are being established today, are more important than anything you'll see on Law & Order."
Later on he said that the trial is "not as exciting as Law & Order, though I'd take [Coleman attorney] Joe Friedberg over Fred Thompson, at least in the courtroom."In real trial news, Deputy Secretary of State Jim Gelbmann was on the stand all day Wednesday discussing votes that might have been improperly rejected, according to the Pioneer Press.
Republican Norm Coleman's attorney, Joe Friedberg, asked Deputy Secretary of State Jim Gelbmann this:
"Based on the order of the Supreme Court, based on the closeness of the race, based on the candidates' own wishes, desires and motives, people whose votes should be counted, in your expert opinion and in the opinion of the counties, have been disenfranchised, correct?"
"That is absolutely correct," Gelbmann replied.
