Eight female staffers defend Al. PLUS they spoke very highly of him.

Of course there are several around here that will say they are lying and were bought off etc.

As Scooby Too would say, Ruh roh. The MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE weighs in. The worm has turned. Senator Franken must go.

The absolute hypocrisy both here and in some of the MSM is just astounding. It's sad that no matter how much actual PROOF be it audio or visual exists (because in our country it's supposed to only be about PROOF not just accusations) it all comes down to if there's a "R" or "D" linked to the person.

Hyper-partisanship is the rule of the day...

They could've been bought off or they could be protecting their reputations within their party or, they could be like a lot of people and not seen Al's "other side" and/or been like those that still tout Hillary as an innocent victim of the system or any combo of the above.

That photo clearly proves he cared not one bit about humiliating that woman. A middle-aged man behaving like a stupid frat boy. He apologized because he's trying to save his career. Don't be fooled.
As long as Donald Trump remains in office ~ it's impossible to address this behavior. When the biggest groper rules the world - kinda hard to point fingers.

Talk about humiliating women. DJT said he didn't hit on one woman because she was too ugly. Yep, at a rally.

So . . you're just spinning your wheels here.

What was wrong with Hillary staying true to her marriage vows?

Trump has 16 woman accusing him of a whole range of things. The cognitive dissonance required for you (parfleche) to say "trump was right" is simply stunning.

Trump is the swamp, it oozes out of his orange skin, you can almost see it.

Except Franken has a problem. Progressives are calling for replacing Al Franken with Keith Ellison as support for resignation builds, Democrat 2018 hopefuls are giving back his donations and you just know that picture of Franken grabbing that woman is going to be featured in every 2020 campaign ad.

Franken needs to go hang out in French Polynesia for a couple weeks.
