Our own State Senator Lori Klein has made national news with her revelation that Herman Cain didn't hit on her, even though she is "not unattractive." Now she's made the big time -- two minutes on the Colbert Report.
Colbert loves him some Herman Cain -- Comedy Central is where Cain belongs -- and his piece about Klein, starting around the two minute mark, is terrific. But don't miss the first two minutes. There are some classic Colbert moments.
ADDED KLEIN BONUS: In other news, the Senator has been doing well by doing good for the AZ Republican Party lately -- $15,000 well. According to the AZ Guardian (subscription only):
Republican Sen. Lori Klein has been helping her party raise big money while scoring a big payday for herself.
The Republican lawmaker, who gained notoriety after reading a racially charged letter on the Senate floor and a few months later pointing a loaded pistol at a reporter, was paid $15,000 in October by the state GOP to raise cash for the party.
The details were buried on page 80 of the Arizona Republican Party’s most recent financial filings with the Federal Elections Commissions. The reports, which were filed a couple of weeks ago, detail the financial transactions of the party for October.
