Al Franken's birthday is today.......got this from his daughter
Edited on Thu May-21-09 01:57 PM by a kennedy
Dear Friend,

Today's my dad's 58th birthday! You may remember last year, when I emailed you and asked for your help in celebrating my dad's 57th birthday. As is often the case with emails like these, 'help' meant your generous contributions to his campaign for the Senate (please note that hasn't changed).

Well, you responded to my message in a big way. The tons of $57 birthday gifts added up to over $20,000 for my dad's campaign! This year, in a stunning feat of originality, I'm going to ask you to do a little more...

GIVE MY DAD A $58 BIRTHDAY PRESENT!

Dad likes to say that with such a small margin of victory over Norm Coleman, no effort went to waste in his campaign. We have no doubt that without the amazing, sustained contributions of our online supporters my dad would not have had the resources to beat Norm Coleman - and he would not be headed to the Senate soon.

But he did, he is, and my mom and I couldn't be prouder that my dad is going to be the next United States Senator from Minnesota. But as you know, we still have a ways to go in the legal process before dad can take his seat in the Senate. And he still needs your help. Please, click here to make a $58 birthday contribution today to see dad through this long legal battle!

For months, dad and his team have been working tirelessly - first on Norm Coleman's lawsuit to overturn the results of the recount, and now on his appeal to the Minnesota Supreme Court. As you can imagine, this has been an incredibly expensive effort. Remember last year when I told you that finding the right gift for dad can be tricky? Well this year, it's not really tricky at all.

HELP MY DAD DEFEND THE VICTORY WE ACHIEVED TOGETHER!

If you can give more than $58, that's great. If you can give less, that's perfectly okay, too. What's most important is that you join me in supporting my dad today. Together, we'll get through this final phase and dad will be seated as the 60th Democratic vote in the Senate, ready to help President Obama deliver the change Minnesotans called for last November.

Thanks for all your support!

Thomasin Franken

P.S.: Dad, if you're reading this, I LOVE YOU AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Paid for and authorized by Al Franken for Senate

5. Al told me on a crowded bus in NYC that he named her after a character in a Thomas Hardy novel.
