Al Franken: Friend of the Working Man… As Long As That Man Doesn’t Get Injured Working for Al Franken

A press release from Republican Party of Minnesota Chairman Ron Carey:

“The Republican Party of Minnesota’s Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request with the state of New York has revealed that Al Franken was fined for a two-year failure to provide disability benefits coverage for his employees. Given that Al Franken Inc. cut a check paying the fine on March 6, 2008, the documents also make clear that Franken deliberately withheld this damaging information from the press and the public. Coupled with his earlier $25,000 fine for failure to pay worker’s compensation for his employees, Franken continues to destroy his credibility with Minnesota’s working families.”

Hey Al, maybe Rush Limbaugh is a big fat idiot, but I’ll be he pays for workers comp and disability insurance for his employees and has a more diverse staff than you do.
