Sounds like Franken. Pretty classy, that guy.
Sen. Al Franken managed to make time for the lunch – but then let Pickens have it afterward.I will say one thing for Minnesota's constituents: At least he didn't throw the old man up against a bathroom wall and nickname himself after a pretend superloser "Dr. Millionaire."
According to a source, the wealthy oil and gas magnate and author of “The First Billion is the Hardest” stepped up to introduce himself to Franken in a room just off the Senate Floor after the lunch ended
Franken, who was seated talking to someone else, did not stand when Pickens said hello. Instead, Franken began to berate him about the billionaire’s financing of the Swift Boat ads in 2004.
According to a source, the confrontation grew heated.
Said Franken spokeswoman Jess McIntosh: “It was a lively conversation.”
