This is a tough one, because Al Franken has been a pro-feminism and well-read Senator who worked hard and brought attention to issues others weren’t highlighting. (He was a Net Neutrality advocate long before it was cool, and remember how he grilled Betsy DeVos to highlight her lack of knowledge? And he was likely the person who caused Jeff Sessions to essentially perjure himself in his confirmation hearing.) I believe he realizes his actions were wrong, but that’s no matter at this important time.
He needs to resign. Another women came forward today accusing him of inappropriate behavior.
I know, I know, denying and lack of shame worked to get Trump elected and will likely work for Moore in Alabama, but I refuse to get in the gutter with their shamelessness and hypocrisy. Ds and progressives ARE better and must act accordingly.
I said after the first accuser, and I’ll say it again. Al Franken must resign. And evidently the D women of the Senate agree.
And I’m trusting he’ll do the right thing and resign. At which, your move, Republicans. Blake Farenthold should resign. Roy Moore shouldn’t be elected to the Senate. There should be repercussions for Trump as well.
