Al Franken Bio Coloring and Activity Book Al Franken Bio -- Cancelled by Publisher

The Al Franken biographical book of success cancelled by St. Louis Publishing Company St. Louis, MO 11-17-2017: Saint Louis children’s book publisher, Really Big Coloring Books® Inc. pulls publication of Senator Al Franken. The unauthorized biographical book was being designed as a positive upbeat book reflecting the success of comedian gone politician to encourage youth and adults alike. With a message describing the life of Senator Franken and how he has had such a positive impact on the lives of many was abruptly changed amid sexual misconduct allegations with admissions and apologies from Mr. Franken.
Publisher Wayne Bell stated, “At what point in our lives do we step back, take a breath and understand people are flawed, it’s a part of the human condition. Be-it a self-appointed local community leader, a small town celebrity or the leader of the greatest country in history. The egregious behavior of sexual assault and misconduct is labelled as one of the unforgiveable sins according to parents and educators we spoke with during the last day of working on this product”.

Bell continued, “During the conversations on whether to continue with this book, comments from parents were ferocious: At this point Mr. Bell why don’t you publish the Really Big Book of Creeps? Really, Al Franken, don’t expect business from us if you call him an American icon. You think Saturday Night Live will have the guts to go after their own? Franken is now outed as a two-faced forgiveness begging politician who questionably may not be re-elected in case he chooses not to step down. MO Senator Claire McCaskill (D) publicly commented “I’m shocked and concerned. The behavior described is completely unacceptable”, RE Al Franken as she requested an ethics commission investigation. These were the less aggressive comments from parents, redemption and forgiveness was not mentioned.”
