Senator Coleman’s (R-MN) family values questioned

A while back, Garrison Keiller wrote about Senator Norm Coleman (R-MN) for Salon.com. Coleman is a supporter of the anti-gay amendment to the US Constitution to “protect” marriage. Keiller seems to be implying something “interesting” about Coleman’s marriage. I, for one, would like to know, in detail, what Keiller is talking about.

Here’s what Keiller said in Salon.com about Senator Coleman: (sorry, it’s their Premium service):

“Norm got a free ride from the press. St. Paul is a small town and anybody who hangs around the St. Paul Grill knows about Norm’s habits. Everyone knows that his family situation is, shall we say, very interesting, but nobody bothered to ask about it, least of all the religious people in the Republican Party. They made their peace with hypocrisy long ago. So this false knight made his way as an all-purpose feel-good candidate, standing for vaguely Republican values, supporting the president.”
