Norm Coleman repeats lie that China is drilling off Cuba
Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) just simply cannot keep the truth straight from Republican talking points. In Mankato yesterday Norm repeated the lie about China drilling for oil off the coast of Cuba.
"At the same time, we've got to be producing more -- outer continental shelf exploration," Coleman said. "The Chinese are able to begin operating 90 miles from our shore by working for Cubans. American companies should tap into those resources."
The Coleman campaign has not responded to our request for confirmation. The Mankato Free Press published an article yesterday about the event, featuring a photo of Coleman wearing the same outfit and standing next to what looks like the same green tractor -- making it all but certain this video was shot yesterday.
