Al Franken: Capitalist Exploiter of Workers?

"Senate candidate Al Franken will pay a $25,000 fine to the state of New York for failure to carry workers' compensation insurance.

Franken was fined for not carrying the insurance for his personal corporation for three years"

You say you did not see the above story yesterday?  Well, it certainly wasn't featured for 24 hours on AOL with a screameing headline like that I put above.

That is my point here.  This kind of story is often overblown.  There might be an explanation why it is not a big deal.  But imagine if it were a REPUBLICAN.  The headlines would go on for days. 

There are better reasons to vote against Al Franken (running for Senate in Minnesota) than this.  In fact, I don't really think voters are nearly stupid enough to vote Al Franken into the U.S. Senate. 

However, the hypcrisy of Democrats and the mainstream media continues to be so thick that you CAN'T cut it with a knife (the knife gets stuck).  See the entries over the past two days on depriving the voters of Florida and Michigan of their right to vote.
