One of Mark Udall's positive traits - his personal financial integrity - is highlighted in contrast with the exploits of his Minnesota counterpart. Yes, to the best of our knowledge, Mark Udall is NOT a Democratic candidate who owes thousands of dollars in income taxes and penalties.
Scott Johnson, one of Power Line's uberbloggers, puts it best:
Since the expiration of the Al Franken decade in 1990, the only kind of humor for which Franken has been responsible is unintentional. Assuming Franken's tax delinquencies are the result of negligence, they would run true to his post-Franken decade form.By contrast, Mark Udall has not been responsible for much in the way of humor (outside of sponsoring the Department of Peace proposal) and for nothing in the way of tax delinquency.
Colorado at least can be thankful that Mark Udall is no Al Franken.
