Al Franken's record, sized up

There are 87 comments on the TwinCities story from Oct 14, 2014, titled Al Franken's record, sized up. In it, TwinCities reports that:

Sen. Al Franken's suit and tie go flying as he tells a story about former Sen. Paul Wellstone during a campaign stop at Northrop Auditorium in Minneapolis on Oct. 10, 2014 . In his five years in the U.S. Senate, Al Franken has become the poster child for a do-nothing, superpartisan Congress, says his opponent, Republican Mike McFadden.

Too funny!

"Oh, and there is the inconvenient fact that Franken has among his holdings a stake in McFadden's company, Lazard Middle Market. Franken's people say it is only a small part of his holdings, shares held by a "socially responsive" mutual fund. Oh, oh, oh, and not under his control.

Well, wait a minute. The fund managers of those socially responsive stocks apparently believe that McFadden's company is socially responsive."

Unfortunately, I'm afraid Franken will win on purpose this time. Liberal voters are so uninformed that they believe that McFadden is rich because he is stealing money from the poor, but Dayton is rich because he inherited his money. LOL

This particularly true of Minnesota voters. In my early years I spent some time working in a packing plant, and I am really struck at the similarity of Dfl'ers goiny to the3 [pols to the cattle being herded into the runway leading up to the guy with the maul in his hands, just waiting to slam it between the eyes of the unknowing beast. Both the animals and the DFL voters were happy not knowing their fate as long a the food kept coming.

Notice the ads for the Democrats, especially Franken, boasting how they helped ONE person or group of people, by funneling tax dollars from working people?

Now that Angry Al has won reelection by keeping his mouth shut, it appears that he is going to start changing all of that...

AGAIN, Angry Al has won reelection by keeping his mouth shut, it appears that he is going to start changing all of that...

Now Al is going after Uber:

Uber's apology over an executive's comments theorizing about launching a smear campaign against journalists wasn't enough for Sen. Al Franken.

How dare Uber - ONLY politicians can do this...

This is rich! Angry Al busted : Woman: Al Franken kissed and groped me without my consent, and there’s nothing funny about it.
NOT only that, but he posed for a very revealing picture- check out the Pioneer Press!

So, the real Al finally starts to bubble to the top.

Ya beat me to it, lol.

Al is a power hungry jerk. Makes no difference if Liberal or Conservative, there is no room for sex abuse relative to people in powerful positions or anyone for that matter. BUT more important for people of power.

Al is just another carpet bagger arsehole who should be rooted out of elected positions.

The State Legislator who outed the powerful Conservative also did a good job. While not understanding her lifestyle she is spot on when she/he said elected officials are in the position to do the peoples work and that doesn't include sex abuse.

Agree, Dayton is able to shut down the legislature with the Supreme Court agreeing.

IMHO, if Dayton don't want the Legislature to function then they should shut down. Let Dayton find out what happens without any new laws from the Legislature, LOL.

I guess Dayton can rule by executive order which would be right up Dayton's ally. Dayton has always wanted to be a dictator and he can then be one.

Sieg Heil dictator Dayton ruling the Socialist state of Minnesota, PERFECT.

Minnesotians deserve the best!!!!

So much for a democratic state.

SHUT DOWN THE LEGISLATURE!!!!!! JUST DO IT!!!!

Of course this is all about politics, the Minnesota Legislature is controlled by Conservatives, the Courts are controlled by Liberals. So the Liberal Governor got with the Liberal Courts and shut down the Conservative Legislature.

This is criminal, it must be the Russians plotting this action to control Minnesota.

If you aren't pissed off about this you are stupid!!!

Al has proven himself to be a fraud.

How do you suppose his wife "feels" about this expose?

http://heavy.com/news/2017/11/al-franken-wife...

Her "smile" belies a nastiness reveling a woman capable of attacking her husband IF he messes around. I'll say the gal he messed with is gropeable, not ugly by any measure. Ya know some of these women bring it on themselves by being so good looking and dressing so sexy.

It's the womans fault, good luck with that Al. If not the attack with your kiss the picture of you faking a tit grab did it.
