Is California buying Minnesota’s Senate seat? If Al Franken wins the race, that could very well end up being the case. According to a recent article on the Politico Web site, Franken has raised over a half-million dollars from his Hollywood friends alone, and has raised more money from California than from any other state, including Minnesota.
Last I checked, Minnesota’s Senate sear was supposed to be selected by Minnesotans, not Californians. But then, Franken’s about as much of a Minnesotan as Al Gore, and has spent less time living here than Jessica Lange.
Keep this in mind: a vote for Franken is a vote bought and paid for by Californians when they’re not off on European cruises, not Minnesotans. Can’t we do better than that?
