Al Franken Tries To Be Funny. Stop the Presses!

City Pages can go from hard hitting investigative journalism all the way down to ridiculous tripe. This piece about Al Franken ranks with the latter.

A letter to the writer, Ben Westoff:

To Mr. Westhoff:

Wow. Somebody acting nutty working out on a treadmill.
Boy, there is a story.

I don't suppose your self-described Republican volunteered her version of it for you, did she now? Especially that corroborating evidence about a politician putting his own bumper sticker
on his car. The nerve!

And just imagine, a "crowd" of 4 people think it "strange" with only 2 going on the record.

Great investigative journalism when you can catch a comedian trying to be funny. Stop the presses!
