All in all, four women have alleged sexual misconduct against Sen. Al Franken. If you find yourself apologizing more than doing your daily job, there’s a huge problem.
Minnesota voters do not think this former comedian is funny and a blockbuster story from Leeanne Tweeden that broke two weeks ago has now turned into four accusations, and I am willing to bet there are more.

If Democrats keep Franken in the Senate, the entire party becomes his enabler—just as Hillary enabled Bill’s sex crimes

You can’t be an effective leader if you are caught hurting women and making them feel worthless or powerless to take action when you inappropriately touched them when they were not asked to be touched. Franken’s stature and position have had women afraid to say anything that they are coming out now.
Because of these allegations, Sen. Franken stated to the Minnesota Star Tribune:
“I’ve met tens of thousands of people and taken thousands of photographs, often in crowded and chaotic situations. I’m a warm person; I hug people. I’ve learned from recent stories that in some of those encounters, I crossed a line for some women — and I know that any number is too many.
Some women have found my greetings or embraces for a hug or photo inappropriate, and I respect their feelings about that. I’ve thought a lot in recent days about how that could happen, and recognize that I need to be much more careful and sensitive in these situations.
I feel terribly that I’ve made some women feel badly and for that I am so sorry, and I want to make sure that never happens again.
And let me say again to Minnesotans that I’m sorry for putting them through this and I’m committed to regaining their trust.”
If you read that as I did, Franken is trying to change allegations and his intent. He wants to make it seem as if his hugging is the issue and that’s not it buddy.
Ok Al… Time to Just Shut Up and EXIT. Two more women say Franken touched them inappropriately, HuffPost reports https://t.co/muoxsitY8n via @USATODAY #tech #robotics #engineering #canada #siliconValley #Virginia

I think Democrats have underestimated how seriously voters are taking the Franken allegations and how hypocritical it makes them look. https://t.co/fw3xSIz59G

KSTP/SURVEYUSA: Just 22 percent say Sen. Franken should remain in office. 33% say he should resign…36% wait for results of Senate Ethics Committee. His approval rating in MN now just 36%, only 5 points higher than President Trump. pic.twitter.com/eHXI5CBFiq

How do you think this man sleeps at night? How many more women has he taken liberties with fondling and touching inappropriately? Franken needs to be removed from the Senate and if he doesn’t want to leave on his own, make it a forceful move.
It looks like liberals are going to be out of power for at least another decade or so.
