Democartic US Senator’s ask Franken to resign….Update..He’s stepping down

I have said all along that Franken should step aside after Trump and Moore do….They have done thing more serious…

But it appears that some of his colleagues aren’t in agreement with this….

And are giving cover fire to the Republicans…

Seven female senators on Wednesday called on Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign in the wake of multiple sexual misconduct allegations against him.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand was the first of Franken’s fellow Senate Democrats to take that step and was quickly followed by Democratic Sens. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, Patty Murray of Washington, Kamala Harris of California and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin. Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) also called on Franken to resign.

“While Senator Franken is entitled to have the Ethics Committee conclude its review, I believe it would be better for our country if he sent a clear message that any kind of mistreatment of women in our society isn’t acceptable by stepping aside to let someone else serve,” Gillibrand said in a Facebook post.

The calls came after POLITICO reportedthat a former Democratic congressional aide said he tried to forcibly kiss her after a taping of his radio show in 2006, three years before he became a U.S. senator. Franken, who had previously been accused by six other women of groping or trying to forcibly kiss them, denied the accusation….

  1. Jack Kingston, former GOP Congressman from GA giving a tortured defense of Roy Moore on CNN now–basically said only one accuser was 14.
    A few weeks ago I would have pegged Kingston as one of the conservative Republicans who would chastise Moore–now he’s on board.

  2. Republican strategist Margaret Hoover saying that almost no Republicans in the Senate or House are actually speaking out against Moore. Basically says most of them are cowards. I agree. This woman makes a living from the Republican Party–yet our commenter here refuses to condemn a large part of a party he
    Claims not to even be a member of anymore. Weird.

  3. So apparently the Trent Frank’s story revolves around his employees being uncomfortable after he asked if they would be willing to be surrogate mothers for he and his wife. Not a good idea for a boss to ask a worker to carry his baby.
    It’s said that Paul Ryan was instrumental in getting Franks to resign. Yet he and McConnell are spineless when it comes to Trump and Moore
