Tina Fey: the donor that got away from Al Franken
Tina Fey, the former Saturday Night Live writer and creator of the hit show 30 Rock, had a profanity-laced story to tell Tuesday about Sen. Al Frankens courtship during the 2008 campaign.

Fey, who is promoting her new book Bossypants, told a Philadelphia audience that Franken, a former SNL colleague, wanted her to contribute to his Senate campaign, the Philadelphia Daily News reported. She didnt donate.

After Franken won the election, Fey said she texted Franken: See, you didnt need my $4,000 to win after all.

Franken shot back a two-word response that began with an F-bomb.

When asked about the message, Franken said it was sent in jest. It was banter between friends," he said. "Tina certainly knew I was kidding.

According to Federal Election Commission records, Fey has not made a donation to any candidate before. A call to her book publicist was not immediately returned.

1. Franken gave her the exact response I would have given her
Hardly qualifies as gossip, let alone news, but apparently there's not much happening in Star Tribune country today.
