U.S. Senate candidate Mike McFadden speaks at a news conference on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul. Democrats fighting to protect Minnesota U.S. Sen. Al Franken's seat want to replicate the last presidential campaign playbook by casting McFadden as a corporate raider who put profit over people. But there may be a hitch. Franken himself has a small stake in the parent company of the same brokerage firm, through a mutual fund comprised of stock in businesses with a "socially responsive" reputation. At issue is Mike McFadden's investment banking career at Lazard Middle Market. An examination of Franken's personal investments shows one of his mutual fund includes investments in Lazard, too.
