Yesterday, Al Franken, Democrat candidate challenging the Senate seat of Norm Coleman (R-MN) held a roundtable on veterans issues at Brigitte’s Cafe in St. Cloud. He drew only one participant.
The other odd thing about this ‘event’ is that the one veteran that did show up, said that he was satisfied with the services he received after registering for services. Josh John, a St. Cloud resident who said he served in the Navy from 2000-04, and the only person who showed up for the roundtable discussion, said . . .
“My mom and my aunt eventually got me to talk with my county VSO. He got me registered with the VA and since then, I haven’t had a problem. I’ve gotten a lot of help, and every question I’ve gotten answered.”
Reminds me of the book signing that Cindy Sheehan had. Too bad there are no pictures of this event.
