Minneapolis Star Tribune, Wednesday March 5:
"Franken faces $25,000 workers' comp penalty
"DFL Senate candidate Al Franken owes a $25,000 penalty to the New York State Workers' Compensation Board for failing to carry workers' compensation insurance for employees of his namesake corporation from 2002 to 2005.
"New York officials have made numerous attempts to contact Franken about the matter since April 2005 but have gotten no reply.
"Campaign spokesman Andy Barr said that neither Franken nor his wife, Franni, were aware of the matter before Tuesday. They have lived in Minneapolis for the past few years and did not know about the state's attempts to reach them in New York City, he said.
"If it's wrong, they will pay what they owe," Barr said.
"It's also possible that there's some kind of dispute that may be resolved in our favor," Bar continued."
Funny. When DIH moves out of state she gets her mail forwarded. They always find me, too.
