Has Pat Robertson's Christian Coalition fallen on hard times? A Virginia law firm is asking a judge to garnishee the group's assets to collect more than $75,000 in unpaid legal bills, the Virginian-Pilot newspaper reports.

"It is unfortunate that it has come to this," Drew McKissick, spokesman for the Christian Coalition, told the newspaper. "Our accountants have been working with the firm to work this out, and hopefully it will be worked out soon." McKissick would not elaborate on why the bills had not been paid.

One possible explanation for the Christian Coalition's financial troubles, McKissick said, is that conservative Christians have been complacent with a conservative Christian in the White House. But there's good news! McKissick says gay marriage and terrorism have new members flocking to the Christian Coalition, especially with the presidential election underway.

"The coalition is now emphasizing 'voter identification, voter registration and voter education' in an all-out effort re-elect Bush for another term,'" McKissick told the paper.
