Unreal: Franken Now Caught Saying He Fakes Apologies to Save Himself

Al Franken Admits Past Apology Was a Fraud

In the forward of his book, “Al Franken, Giant of the Senate,” published in May, Sen. Al Franken told readers that he would explain to them how Washington really worked.

Apparently, the book also sheds a little light on his character as well — and it is about as disgusting as it gets.

A review of the book by The New York Times cast the senator as a “giant phony” who pretended to be serious in public “while his inner comic monologue never stopped running.” The article pointed out that during his 2008 campaign, he was asked about a joke he made in 1995 about raping and drugging CBS reporter Lesley Stahl.

“To say I was sorry for writing a joke was to sell out my career, to sell out who I’d been my entire life,” Franken wrote in the book, as reported by The Times.

“And I wasn’t sorry that I had written Porn-o-Rama or pitched that stupid Lesley Stahl joke at 2 in the morning. I was just doing my job,” he wrote.

But that was written long after he won the Senate seat.
