Senator Coleman, on the other hand...

Coleman says Kofi Annan should quit

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sen. Norm Coleman urged U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan Tuesday to resign because of a scandal involving the U.N.'s oil-for-food program.

Coleman said that... Annan should resign because "the most extensive fraud in the history of the U.N. occurred on his watch."

Annan's son received reimbursements for health insurance coverage through June of this year from a Swiss inspection company that is being investigated for alleged fraud and abuses in the program. On Monday, the United Nations confirmed that Kojo Annan received nearly $2,500 a month after leaving the company, payments that did not cease until February 2004.

Guess the cookie don't crumble too far from the tree.
