Default Al Franken Faces More Allegations

Still not as bad as Moore but maybe not for long.
Why can't some people keep their hands to themselves?

Should he have left Congress?

Why on earth would Franken leave Congress over this? He has the proper political orientation to emerge unscathed. We are already seeing the photo trivialized as mock groping.

Oh sure he is happy to have the same Congressional ethics committee that gave Maxine Waters and Charlie Rachel's corruption a wink and a nod provide a stage for him to plead his victimhood at the hands of the vast RW conspiracy.

No I don't think it's the same as Moore, Trump and Weinstein. It's more like George HW Bush

OK, fine, the answer is no.
I'm just trying to find a LINE of CONSISTANCY from EITHER side on when sexual misconduct is or isn't an issue that disqualifies a politician from office.

I suspect I won't get one.

Well it seems he has decided to leave congress. Having been elected in one of the most corrupted elections in modern history, he should never have been there in the first place. That said, Minnesotans seemed happy to send a buffoon to the Senate.

I say good riddance.



BTW, he admits he did, or likely did, much of what he has been accused. So with no defense except "I may have done these things," he leaves the Senate, I presume in the hope the allegations will stop coming.

Moore still adamantly refuses to admit guilt. And the cases against him still founder in seas of ambiguity and lack of real evidence. Only one has any kind of tangible evidence but her own stepson says she is lying.

Franken says he "might be guilty. Falling on his sword for the party he can leave thus opening his future back in comedy capitalizing on making sarcastic comments about Trump and the GOP.

Moore says he didn't do it and is standing firm against the blizzard of media hype and lies that have always dogged staunch Conservative Christian politicians. That said however, if the allegations find proof and truth, he should also step down.

Sadly, the media, and even his own party, cannot wait until the facts are out and the allegations proven true/false to throw him under the bus. So he is left with a jury of his peers,,, ie, the voters in Alabama, to decide his current state of guilt,,,, or,,,,; innocence.

I know all we hear lately is how TRUMP has screwed up. But he continues to rack up successes with his agenda despite Media coverage to the contrary.

meanwhile.....
Al Franken's chicken run spells more possible problems for the Democrats

Franc what do you think of Trump Walking into the dressing rooms of his Teen Pageants to look at the naked contestants?
Trump admitted (bragged about) this on the radio to Howard Stern. several pageant contestants confirm it. Is that resign worthy?

Yes or No?

Yes But...

No because...

Trump is flawless. Just because he was in a position of power and used it to scope out naked chicks, aint a thing. His base is a bit stronger since you mentioned this. He is backing Moore, what else is there to say.
