Today, the Minnesota Professional Fire Fighters (MPFF), an organization consisting of 1,600 members of the International Association of Fire Fighters in over 40 local communities across the state representing full-time firefighters and emergency medical technicians, is proud to endorse Al Franken for US Senate from Minnesota. This decision was unanimous by our executive board.
Franni Franken is planning on a busy Election Day this year: knocking doors, making phone calls and motivating volunteers for Al. When Franni heard that Minnesotans can now vote without an approved excuse, she knew she had to take advantage of this new law to free up some time on November 4th.
With just 7 days left in the campaign, I thought that, just for today, I’d ditch all the obnoxious tricks and just tell you why this is all so important to me — and why I hope it’s important to you. I promise, we’ll get back to your regularly scheduled programming.
Today, the Franken campaign is pressing investment banker Mike McFadden to explain to Minnesotans why his company, Lazard Middle Market, took credit on their website for the Smurfit-Stone restructuring deal for 18 months, until an ad about the deal began running last week.
The Franken campaign today released a new TV ad that highlights Sen. Franken’s fight to end an egregious tax loophole that allows billionaire hedge fund managers to pay taxes on income at half the rate of everyday Minnesotans.
Investment Banker Mike McFadden is trying to distract from the fact that his company worked on a deal that resulted in more than 400 workers losing their jobs. We know this because his company, Lazard Middle Market, took credit for it on its website while Mike McFadden was still CEO.
