T. Boone Pickens helped fund an ad for Vietnam Veterans against John Kerry, and Senator Al Franken is taking him to task. Ooooohhhhh! Exciting, huh? The continuation of the Franken unraveling?
Franken began to berate him about the billionaire’s financing of the Swift Boat ads in 2004.
According to a source, the confrontation grew heated.
Said Franken spokeswoman Jess McIntosh: “It was a lively conversation.”
Pickens’ camp appears unmoved by the drama. “If they have a problem, that’s their problem,” said Pickens spokesman Jay Rosser.
