Where is Al Franken? He claims to have won an election in Minnesota.
But that’s not what a local reporter says. Al has been spotted in Florida:
Make that since anyone in Minnesota has seen Franken. That was the day he proclaimed victory after the Canvassing Board certified his 225-vote win. He took no questions after his brief statement, only to disappear behind the façade of his downtown Minneapolis townhome. Since then we have been told he has been hanging out in Florida while the rest of us, pardon my French, have been freezing our butts off.
When pushed, the Franken campaign said that he came up to DC for an interview:
UPDATE: The Franken Campaign says Franken has been accessible, they say Franken sat down for interviews with both the Star Tribune and the Pioneer Press in Washington D.C. a week and a half ago.
