ST. PAUL - Protesters chanted for Rep. Mary Franson to resign and a liberal organization submitted a petition this morning demanding that she apologize after making comments that some say insulted poor Minnesotans.


Welfare Rights Committee members held signs proclaiming "People are not animals ever" and "Rep. Franson, you are out of touch" as they waited for her to go into a House Agriculture Committee meeting in the State Office Building across from the Capitol.
