    I am sad to hear Franken is such a creep. A couple people could just be a thing, but he is up to what, 7? Guy needs to go.

    Wait... I thought Franken was gay? Why are all his accusers women or am I missing something?

    But it's really not the right thing. He has an important fuckin job and he, like everyone else who has ran for something, campaigned on the premise that he was the best person for the job. Either he lied to get into office or he's being a coward and bowing to political pressure.

    If a father does something terrible, you know what he doesn't do? Resign from his family. If Steven Hawking groped a grad student when he was younger, should his contributions to science be outlawed? Should he vow to never discover anything again?

    If he's so unfit, he'll be voted out. I was a fan until his resignation. Complete lack of integrity. "I didn't do anything I'm accused of, I'm an amazing person, I'm still gonna resign but let's talk about Trump and Moore, amirite??"

    And this post doesn't do anything to reinforce the idea that Republicans are a bunch of misogynists with no principles at all does it.

    Franken is simply acting like a typical democrat. By day he’s a champion for women. By night he’s their molester.

    I do have principles, I just think there are bigger fish to fry. A la the sexual revolution having metastasized I don't happen to think there are very many of the sorts of boy scouts you allude to out there at this point.

    AND I have serious doubts about Moore's accusers.

    It wasn't a problem for Bill so it can't be a problem now. Can't have it both ways.

    So he basically admits to none of it except for the photo. Seems the witch hunt is out of control.

    Then he shouldn't have resigned, period. Was he even a Senator yet at the time of the pic?

    You say he shouldn't have resigned, but every day more of his colleagues were publicly calling for his resignation. I think 10 female Democratic Senators went public.

    I do wonder what kind of consequences there would be for him if he had stuck around. Obviously it would be difficult to work on new legislation when your colleagues want nothing to do with you. Probably wouldn't get invited to parties. Can't really think of anything else.

    Not a particular fan of his political leanings but I always liked his questions during hearings. Seems as though he always had a unique and insightful take on something no one else had asked.
    I thought he was smarmy and smug but at the same time had a bit of appreciation of his intellect.

    I can't disagree with wanting to have his day in court so to speak. I mean who wants to be lynched by a mob as opposed to having a fair trial and hung lawfully?

    I think it would've been a story for a few weeks, then they would've moved on and let him do his job, while the ethics committee sorted it out.

    If Schumer, Pelosi, and Trump can work together, I'm pretty sure Franken's colleagues would've lived with it. Franken showed no balls here. He maintains his innocence, was entitled to due process, and still folded. Pretty weak move on all sides, and the Dems are complete morons for ganging up on him, thinking it will pressure the Reps to do anything about their people.

    Reason #346 why the Dems are a bunch of losers.
