As previously discussed, the Police Departement of Bemidji, Minnesota is attempting to speak with former Air America host and Senate candidate Al Franken in regards to a string of liquor store robberies that have occurred in that community over the last two months. They've now upgraded his status to a "person of interest", and have enlisted the aid of state police. A security cordon has been established around his compound, but officials are still uncertain on whether he's inside or whether he's fled to Canada or another country. Updates as they become available...
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Before I get a TRO from Al Franken's people or something, I want to make it clear that this was an "April Fool's Day Joke". In retrospect, I should have made it more obvious, and I apologize to Mr. Franken, his family, his friends, and the entire population of not just Bemidji but the state of Minnesota.
