Al Franken...POS before this and POS after. Just another of those, "Do as I say not as I do".

remember the Commie scare of the 50s? "are you now, or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?!"

this week's version should go like this: "have you ever acted improperly to a woman who you were not married to? actions, speech, whatever?" if so, you should apologize and resign.

Capitol Hill will be vacant in 2 weeks.

The news is currently at the intersection of politics and entertainment. To be in that city, one must often leave right and wrong in the next state.

Al Franken.

Wasn't amusing when he was on SNL.

Even less amusing as a Senator.

if the current standard of "serious accusation" is sufficient to keep out Mr. Moore, then that same standard should suffice to kick out anyone likewise accused. don't need proof (but that helps), just a serious claim by someone who doesn't appear to be on drugs or bought off.

so....bye bye Mr. Franken, and many others.

Franken should remember "People that live in glass houses, shouldn't throw stones."

Good riddance .

ALL elected officials in Washington should be placed on a rickety ship with limited provisions, fuel and accommodations, and set to sail into the Atlantic. Three days into their "voyage" the ship runs out of fuel. The last survivor gets to come back and start over.

Meanwhile, we elect all new people and when that bastard makes it back, his ass is thrown in the maximum security prison in Colorado.

Saw something on news last night that showed that congress has a special department for handling these situations and said that there have only been 260 over the past 20 years....

So I thought to myself.....um, that is 13 a year or one a month?? How is that not seen as a problem?

Quote:
Currently, victims are required to undergo counseling, mediation and a 30-day “cooling off period” before filing a formal complaint with the Office of Compliance.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...cf5_story.html



Of those 260, how many more people gave up in these counseling sessions?

Did anyone here ever hear of this? Apparently it's a thing and well known inside DC.
