Tina Fey tells a funny Al Franken story

The funniest moment of Tina Fey’s appearance at the Free Library Tuesday, say attendees, was when WHYY’s Marty Moss-Coane asked the Upper Darby native “30 Rock” star about politics and she told a story about former “SNL” colleague Al Franken. Fey said Franken, now a U.S. senator from Minnesota, hounded her for a political donation but she ducked him. Fey, participating in the Library’s Philadelphia Book Festival, and promoting her book “Bossypants,” said she texted Franken after he won and said “See, you didn’t need my $4,000 to win after all,” prompting Sen. Franken to text back, “F--- you.”

UPDATE: "It was banter between friends. Tina certainly knew I was kidding," Sen. Franken told us Thursday.
