Accusers Rip Franken's 'Hypocritical' Resignation Speech

Franken accused of groping journalist at Media Matters party for Obama inauguration

Cupp concluded that in the event of Moore's election to the senate, it would be interesting to see how many senators condemn him for his alleged sexual abuses like they did to Franken. Tweeden, a Los Angeles radio host, was the first woman to come forward with allegations of impropriety. The Minnesota senator announced on Thursday morning that he will resign in the wake of accusations of sexual misconduct. "He wanted to talk about the pain that he was going through - which is obvious - but not the pain that he has inflicted, and I thought that was inappropriate to do that from the Senate floor, quite candidly". "The town was buzzing with optimism, and one of the many events on our list was a swanky Media Matters party with Democratic notables everywhere", the former communications director for Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson wrote in the article titled, "I Believe Franken's Accusers Because He Groped Me, Too". The woman, Stephanie Kemplin, said Franken cupped her breast while she was deployed in the Middle East during the Iraq War. It was during this rehearsal that Tweedan claims Franken put his hand on the back of her head, forcibly kissed her and aggressively stuck his tongue in her mouth. John Phillips & his bud Roger Stone who coached Leeann for weeks to take Al down.

Before Franken announced his impending resignation, celebrities like Alyssa Milano, Amber Tamblyn, and Maggie Gyllenhaal also called out the hypocrisy of the situation. "We were finally beginning to listen to women about the ways in which men's actions affected them". I froze. Then he squeezed.

"I just hope they get somebody else that's better", another woman said. I was shocked. I was upset.

Noting seven other women subsequently came forward with allegations of Franken's misconduct, Tweeden said it is "between those women and God, who's lying".

"I look forward to working with our new Senator to help Minnesota families and stand up to President Trump and the Republicans' divisive agenda", McCollum said.

"I'm saying that he calls himself a champion of women, but he does these things that says to the women, 'you have no ownership over your own body.' That 'your comfort does not matter.' That 'I can touch you and I can do whatever I want to you and it doesn't matter, '" she said. If he is innocent as he claims (he says some of the allegations were untrue and he remembers the rest differently than his accusers) and if he is as confident that the Ethics Committee would vindicate him as he says, he shouldn't be resigning.

"And after Franken resigned, another senator is expected to resign tomorrow", Fallon said. Because if Al Franken was a Republican, for better or worse, he would still have his job.
