Franken’s SCOTUS hearing sketch framed, mounted in Sessions’ office

WASHINGTON — A coda to the story of that now-famous sketch Al Franken drew of Alabama Republican Jeff Sessions during Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination hearings…

The Birmingham News notes that the remarkably-accurate sketch Franken drew of the Judiciary Committee’s ranking Republican is now matted, framed and hanging in Sessions’ Washington office. It’s signed by Franken, with a note appended that reads: “A commanding and authoritative Jeff Sessions questions Solicitor General Elena Kagan.”

Franken, ever the humorist, sent the sketch with a handwritten note asking if he could post a photo of the gift exchange in his own D.C. office. “I know the photo presents the strong suggestion that we like each other,” Franken wrote Sessions. “If you’re comfortable with that, I’d be honored to have it up in a permanent place in our office.”

He was, and it is.
