Minnesota Sen. Coleman donates Sen. Craig's donation to charity

WASHINGTON — Sen. Norm Coleman will be donating a $2,500 contribution he received from Sen. Larry Craig's political action committee to charity.

Coleman's campaign manager, Cullen Sheehan, says that the Minnesota Republican senator will donate the contribution he received two months ago from Craig's "Alliance for the West" PAC.

Coleman already has called on Craig to resign. Craig pleaded guilty this month to a charge stemming from an undercover police operation in a Minneapolis airport bathroom.

Sheehan declined to comment on Coleman's decision, referring to Coleman's earlier statement that Craig had pleaded guilty to a crime involving conduct "unbecoming a senator."
