Bannon loves supporting and promoting guys with sexual allegations--this is right up his alley. It is his thing.

Maybe Bannon can get the holy rollers of AZ to vote for him like the AL zealots.

So what? I don't think we need to worry about the poor harassers, assaulters, and other assorted miscreants.

May we see 38 resignations and a child molester voted down. And the impeachment of the groper-in-chief.

Good. Shake 'em all out now, on both sides of the aisle, and start with a clean slate for the 2018 elections.

as the saying goes, it's getting caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy!

Franken hasn't resigned. He said something about " the coming weeks" .
That's not a resignation - he will show up in the Senate tomorrow & next week.

Resign means you don't show up for the job. It's Kabuki Theater.
I won't be a bit surprised if he recants his "resignation."

Yes, the Trumpbeat will be getting louder and closer to the WH. Resign, resign, resign.

His story is that he asked two female staffers to be surrogates and bear his child. He's stepping down effective Jan 31. House opened ethics investigation as well.

off topic, there are several very very long threads all about Franken. This is about Trent Franks.

In most jobs you give a 2-week's notice (or more) when you quit your job. So yes, this was a normal resignation.
