That's going to leave a mark

Two prominent members of Minnesota's Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party are calling on Sen. Al Franken to resign his Senate seat following allegations of sexual misconduct.

 

Although many other Democrats have called the former comedian's actions disturbing, state auditor Rebecca Otto and Megan Thomas, president of the party's official Feminist Caucus, say he should leave office.

 

The allegations were made Thursday morning by radio host Leeann Tweeden, who said Franken harassed her during a 2006 USO trip to the Middle East, before he was elected to the Senate in 2008.

Tweeden said Franken wrote a play to be performed in front of troops featuring a kiss, and then forced his tongue into her mouth after insisting on practice. A photo also shows a grinning Franken's hands over Tweeden's breasts while she was asleep.

Otto, a candidate for governor in Minnesota, said in a statement that "I believe it's in the best interest of Minnesotans and of women everywhere for Senator Franken to resign, and to set an example to powerful men across America that sexual harassment will not be tolerated."

 

Thomas, meanwhile, told the Washington Examiner that Franken's misconduct was "every woman's nightmare on a bus." In a Facebook post, the longtime party organizer wrote that while she appreciated his progressive vote record, the fear Franken will instill in women is enough reason for his departure.

I think he should resign, what’s your point?  You continually defend a fucking pedophile “judge” who was thrown off the bench twice, clearly that is the point you are attempting to make - the difference between democrats and republicans, correct?

The reason the women in this OP are noteworthy, is because you idiots always circle the wagons to protect your own .
