Sopranos' Vincent Curatola Warns Minnesotans: Al Franken Supports Employee Free Choice Act

Minnesota TV viewers will receive a special message from the Sopranos' Vincent Curatola, aka Johnny "Sack" Sacramoni, warning them that Al Franken supports the Employee Free Choice Act.

Curatola is appearing, for the second time, in an ad paid for by Coalition for a Democratic Workplace (CDW), a group founded to oppose the bill.

The Employee Free Choice Act, which Franken supports, would allow workers to form unions by obtaining signatures on a sign-up sheet. Currently, the National Labor Relations Board mandates secret ballot elections to certify the formation of unions.

CDW alleges this opens workers to pro-union intimidation; labor unions and supporters of the bill say the current system opens workers to anti-union intimidation from employers.

The ad begins airing statewide in Minnesota today. In it, Curatola appears as a bullying labor boss who doesn't like Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.), whom Franken is challenging, because Coleman opposes the Employee Free Choice Act. See it below:
