Al Franken must be getting really desperate in his campaign against Senator Norm Coleman. He is now running an ad in which he falsely claims that Coleman is the candidate who has taken the most money from Wall Street and financial organizations. Sorry, Al, it is Hillary Clinton and Democrat Senator Chris Dodd (Chairman of the Senate Banking Oversight Committee) who have received more than $25 million from the Wall Street financial interests.
By the way, did Franken bother to tell us that he has taken more than a half a million dollars in campaign money from those same Wall Street and financial interests? Or that the out of state Democrat Senate Campaign Committees have pledged to spend more than $6 million on his campaign here in Minnesota? And those campaign committees have received more than $15 million from Wall Street and financial interests? All these figures are in the public records filed with the Fair Elections Commission.
Finally, how about the one-and-a-half to two-and-a-quarter million dollars he has put in his own pocket for speeches to Wall Street financial organizations? Look, we know Al Franken has been gone from Minnesota for quite a many years, and got back here just in time to meet the minimal residency requirement to qualify to run for senator from this state rather than the states of New York or California where he spent a large part of his life. But Minnesotans aren't as stupid as his big city liberal friends and he seems to think we are. We do know how to read, we watch the news and check up on the wild false claims you and your liberal supporters make. We prefer to elect someone to the Senate who actually lives here and shares our values. Re-elect Senator Norm Coleman.
