From an Al Franken email…

And gosh darn it, people like him…

“Outside spending in our elections has gotten absurd. Look at the numbers:

Koch network groups spent about $150 million.

Rove’s groups spent $70 million.

Conservative groups altogether spent $302 million to defeat Democrats in this year’s elections.

Call me crazy, but I don’t think when the founders envisioned free speech, they meant “let corporations spend millions of dollars to buy elections in America.” This is not how our elections should run.”
