I was hoping the ethics committee would be allowed to finish their work and make their recommendation. If the committee recommended that Franken step down then it would stand to reason that Trump and Moore (assuming he wins) would also be required to go through the process.
What I did wasn't nearly as bad as what this other guy did, but I have to resign because my party won't support me now. But, what kills me is the other guy isn't going anywhere and I am, that's not fair. But, I'm only leaving because my party won't support me now.
Franken is doing what any politician would do - accepting the reality without admitting fault. More heads will roll, on both sides of the isle. This is only just beginning; in 18-24 months the number of men forced to face their disgusting behavior will be staggering - not just in entertainment and politics but in every walk of life. The day of reckoning is at hand. The entitled "old boy club" is being destroyed...
He apologized to the women that he felt he mistreated. There’s no need for him to apologize for the ones he doesn’t believe. At least he has the decency to recognize he was wrong and walk away
Good men are forced to quit under false accusations, while bad men stay n get support n endorsement despite strong evidences of criminal behavior n are not forced to resign n run for the officer.What’s a conspiracy, a shame, and a moral corruption!
Liberals have believed for years that they can do no wrong. It’s like dealing with a child who was never punished or told anything they did was wrong, then wondering why you can’t get them to admit their guilt.
And spare me the lame “whataboutisms”
Republicans never apologize for anything they think they can never do wrong, they think they are as a god,and the sad part is Democrats sit at home and not vote while the rich get all the tax breaks.
It would not surprise me if Franken's real frustration with him being asked to resign, is the fact that the majority of his colleagues probably have committed the same vile acts, but they have not yet been outed.This is not about President Trump as he noted earlier in the day, but with others in Congress.
Because he didn't! He should not have resigned. He was forced out by a bunch of self righteous idiots who have no common sense. Meanwhile every republican perv will stay in office and screw us all over, including Trump.
I agree with Franken. A spoof photo and an unwanted kiss is not good enough reason to make him resign. It isn't like he paid off his accuser with taxpayer money while he was a Senator. I deplore those Democrats who are talking against Senator Franken.
