I just remembered 

...that I was going to check to see if Al Franken's PAC here in Minnesota did in fact get back a $500 contribution from Tarryl Clark's campaign. As I reported here, Senator Clark called here and said she never got the check and Midwest Values PAC MN said they had been contacted about the check. The date on the email I received from MVP MN was Sept. 24. I had left myself a Post-It to see if that report was ever fixed. Yes it was, but notice the date on the report. The report was due 10/30, and it reports that the check was returned on 9/1/06. Yet MVP MN said they had not been notified about the mistake until 9/24/06. Hmm. I'll have to ask Brodkorb to see if Mark Ritchie will be investigating this.

It's also worth noting the number of DFL legislators who sent back their money (all of whom had their returns dated 10/23, by the way): Tim Faust, Andy Welti, Mindy Greiling, Sandy Peterson, Katie Sieben, Don Betzold. Why are these people running away from a potential standard-bearer of their party?
