Woman accuses Al Franken of kissing, groping her without consent | TheHill
Yes he needs to resign as Al Franken already confirmed by saying he is sorry for what occurred!

Guilty by his own admission! Your Fired!

Don't you guys see the insanity of the situation? It is like mutually assured destruction... if everyone can be taken out by an allegation of a certain type.. the allegations will fly. When will it stop? I want a job so I say my manager groped me? Someone else wants a job so he gets a woman to say his competition groped her?

This is insanity.

He shouldn't resign until trump does.

"He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth"

He actually got approval to kiss her.
So, you're ok with sexual harassment and assault if another person did it. Ok.

If she was wearing a padded bra just as thick, he would be fondling her bra (because a bra isnt a person) and not her, right?

I know what a flak vest is. I also bet if a girl was sleeping next to you that you would not attempt to touch her breasts no matter what she was wearing, flak vest or whatever. Its not appropriate. I do not care if someone was wearing body armor while sleeping, you do not sexually demean someone who is not capable of defending themselves.

I'm a liberal and I think Franken should step down. The difference between a liberal and a conservative is we won't defend our gropers. He should be gone. We've got better than him.

According to many on the left, it's ok for blacks to drop N-bombs and Liberal men to sexually assault women because they aren't white conservatives.

McConnell has already called for an investigation. Pretty quick on the draw there. Would be nice to see it not matter which party the person belongs to. Believe it was 16 women who accused trump.

Notice all the liberal posts on this thread excusing his behavior?

Seriously, you don't see the liberals on here making excuses for him?
