Democrat’s Circular Firing Squad Draws Blood

Senator Al Franken's Forced Resignation Gives President Trump's Agenda Some Grease

'The Meeting' By Jeff Del Nero

“Democratic women on Wednesday led the charge of more than two dozen senators who called on their embattled colleague, Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota, to resign after multiple women accused him of harassment or sexual misconduct.”

“Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Kamala Harris of California, Patty Murray of Washington and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin kicked off the stampede on Wednesday, all putting out statements within minutes of one another saying it was time for Franken to go.”

“Last month, Franken said he was “embarrassed” and “ashamed” and he apologized to supporters and the women who say he groped them; he also said he supported the Senate Ethics Committee investigation into the allegations against him and would cooperate.”
