Smilin' Norm's forgiving landlord

Posted by: Hammer / 2:48 PM

Smilin' Norm Coleman's D.C. landlord doesn't much care whether Norm bothers to pay his rent.

Coleman pays just $600 a month for a one-bedroom place in a Capitol Hill townhouse. That's remarkably cheap for the neighborhood, and a fraction of the $1,780 monthly rent Coleman paid on the Washington apartment he left in June 2007, according to a report this week from the National Journal.

The National Journal reports:

[Senator Coleman] said he discovered that his rent for last November and January had not been paid. In mid-June, Coleman covered the back rent with a personal check for $1,200 made out to Larson and signed by the senator's wife. Last year, Coleman sold furniture to Larson to cover one month's rent, according to Larson. And Larson held on to yet another month's rent check for three months, cashing it a few days after NJ's inquiries.

There's a word for people who let you live in a building without paying rent. "Parent". In this case, Coleman's getting a sweet deal from a his robo-call operative.
