Grassley’s Worst Nightmare

Fund Raising Email From Admiral (Ret.) Franken

(Our next Senator I hope):

“Well, that didn’t take long. Less than an hour after I was declared the Democratic nominee for Senate in Iowa, the attacks from Chuck Grassley began.

“The most liberal nominee in Iowa Senate history”

Gotta love it!

Chuck Grassley doesn’t know what to say about me. He’s never faced an opponent like me before. I’m his political nightmare, so he’s just throwing cow pies at the wall and hoping something sticks.

Calling me “radical” is laughable when Chuck Grassley supports a complete ban on abortion and letting literally anyone buy an AR-15 without even a background check. But there’s one attack that I absolutely won’t take lying down, and that’s Chuck Grassley’s attacking me for serving our country for 36 years in the U.S. Navy.

Grassley is already trying to say that because I enlisted in the military at age 19, because my deployments meant that my family had to move from state-to-state and country-to-country… that I’m not an Iowan anymore.

Chuck Grassley wants to pretend that I wasn’t raised in rural, northwest Iowa. He ignores the enormous sacrifices that my family – my wife and my kids – made to allow me to serve in the Navy.

Grassley’s attacks denigrate every servicemember and every military family that has to pack up, change schools, say goodbye to friends, spend holidays away from each other, and be absent from life’s big events like weddings and the birth of a child.

And if Chuck Grassley thinks that I will stand silent while he says that every Iowan who puts on our country’s uniform stops being an Iowan… he’s delusional.

These are the kinds of attacks I’m going to be up against. Nasty stuff from Chuck Grassley, Mitch McConnell, and the Fox ‘Entertainment’ News propaganda network.

There’s one reason why: The GOP is scared. They’ve seen the polls, and they know that if we defeat Grassley and turn Iowa blue this November, Democrats are guaranteed to maintain our Senate majority.

In order to fight back, we need to raise $250,000 before our mid-month deadline at midnight tonight, but the only way we’ll hit our goal and send Grassley packing is if grassroots donors like you give again right now” and hit that donate button! 


 {Ed. comment}A second fundraising email arrived. Admiral Franken calls Grassley out for his (Grassley’s) tweet on January 5, 2021.

As the J6 Committee hearing goes on, it looks like knowledge and acquiescence of the coming insurrection was spread throughout the Republican Party. Iowans and Americans need to know what Grassley’s part was in the insurrection:

Admiral Franken

Today, the January 6th Committee held another public hearing.

One big question that still remains unanswered: What exactly was Chuck Grassley’s plan for January 6th?

On January 5th, Chuck Grassley told reporters that he – not Mike Pence – would preside over the certification of the Electoral College votes. Grassley said of Pence: “We don’t expect him to be there.”

It’s time to come clean, Senator. What was the plan for January 6th? Why did you not expect VP Pence to be there? Were you aware of – or even part of – the plot to overturn the 2020 election? What would you have done had Pence not shown up?

I served our country for over 36 years in the U.S. Navy. I repeatedly swore an oath to protect our nation from all threats, foreign and domestic. I am now running for Senate against Chuck Grassley because I will not stand idly by while Donald Trump and his Republican lap dogs attack and whittle away at our democracy.

I’m now the Democratic nominee against Chuck Grassley here in Iowa, and the GOP attacks against me have already begun. and hit that donate button!
