It's really quite simple, Norm Coleman is a hypocrite. While receiving Limited Market Value discounts on his St. Paul residence in 2000 through 2006 (per Ramsey County data) reducing his personal property taxes, on March 22, 2007, Coleman voted against Senate Amendment No. 545 that would have provided Minnesota with $357.5 million in property tax relief.
