Franken falling on his sword is all part of the "get Trump" movement. Watch. Over the next six months Franken will be a constant guest on every news and talk show out there, hammering home his point that the President is a sexual predator.

That is all this is about.

Here's his full speech.
The first part where he speaks about women I find personally disgusting given the reasons he's supposedly going to resign. Not today. But in the next few weeks.
Here's what I think is happening with Franken. He was gross on SNL by the way and voters are surprised he's gross in real life? What were they thinking voting for a gross SNL comic?
But I digress. I think he's saying he'll resign in the next few weeks because he's counting on the Alabama election results on December 12th likely having the accused sex offender against children Roy Moore winning the seat. And if Moore wins, and I think this is why Franken interjected about Trump in this speech, Franken can come forth to the press and say something like, well look at the new Senator that's coming in to take Sessions place!
The people of Alabama elected him with all those accusations about abusing little girls decades ago. Why should I resign when my accusers were grown women?

That wouldn't fly. If he resigns because he's a self admitted sexual predator and resigned because of that, it would be the gross pot trying to paint other kettles his same color. And gross is the perfect encapsulating word to describe this man. Why do women not act as they would had a man committed the offenses Franken is accused of? Senator or no?
Call the police! File a report. They can't be fired for being a victim of a sexual predator and wanting it to stop. At least I hope not.

And President Trump's accusers all disappeared after he was elected. If that was Hillary's tactic it was a poor one considering the record her husband had while in office. And her attitude toward his accusers at the time. Now she says victims of sexual assault should be believed, when she called them bimbos when they spoke against her husband gross Bill Clinton.

She is not a soldier. They were on USO Tour in Afghanistan(?) which is why she is fatigues and body armor. This is the picture that really got the sexual harassment ball rolling......hard to deny what everyone can see.
Her uniform is what made me think soldier.
For me, it doesn't matter what her job in the life is, when she chose to participate in a USO tour in Afghanistan, that's brave. And no matter what she does for a living in the world, she doesn't deserve to be disrespected like what Franken imparts in his picture. His personality there, and maybe it is due to her career choice, isn't doing him any favors if he hopes to pretend in any way he's wrongly accused.

In his resignation speech Franken did not admit to anything, nor did he issue an apology for any action he was accused of. He stated some of the allegations against him were not true, and he remembered the others differently than they were described. Then he stated nothing he had done had brought discredit to the Senate. All of that adds up to equal Franken has not "self admitted" to anything.

He also didn't actually resign, he stated his intention to resign at some point in the future.

And President Trump's accusers all disappeared after he was elected.
That tends to happen when there is no real evidence.

Yes, I'm aware of Mr.Frankens speech from the Senate floor. I posted the video after all.
His was an unapologetic speech. And as I mentioned, his resignation is not to happen the same day as his speech.

Al Franken’s past comments on sexual assault complicate his effort to dispute Leeann Tweeden’s allegation
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...tion-is-complicated-by-his-own-past-comments/

As to my remarks about him being a self admitted sexual predator, perhaps you missed his November remarks. Keep in mind his groping picture in this thread of Ms.Tweeden is not what he's speaking of in the video below in the ABC news link when he speaks of rehearsing for a kiss. In that assault Franken stuck his tongue down Ms.Tweeden's throat.He says he's trying to take responsibility by apologizing. And he says even more in the video below.
'I'm going to have to be more careful,' Sen. Al Franken said of sexual misconduct allegations

He just blames Trump. Didnt even appologise for being a nasty sexual preditor.
Of course not. He's been in D.C. on the Hill long enough to know how to talk like a corrupt politician. Can you imagine the skeletons that are walking in the closets of everyone in the Congress? Eee, that would make Halloween look like amateur hour.

"I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and dog-gone it, people like me."
Al Franken, Stuart Smalley in Saturday Night Live, catchphrase

Political recourse for coming out against your boss will likely mean you won't work there anymore.if I had that happen to me .I would leave after filing a complaint to the police and be free to act and not worry.

And fear of firing is what enables these gross lechers to continue offending in their hunting ground.
Can you imagine how short lived one of two careers or maybe both would have been? If John Conyers in his infamous predisposition to fondling women when they were alone with him in an elevator on the Hill, was reported as being found unconscious in a pile in the corner of the elevator when it opened with just him in it?
Because reported, unknown, was that he tried to fondle an intern or a freshman female there and she was very adept at martial arts. :halo

Isn't there a legal protection if someone is sexually harassed and seeks to file charges but is fired in retaliation? I thought there was something akin to the whistle blower protection laws in that regard. I could be mistaken though. If there's not there should be. That would maybe help clean out the swamp of the swamp clingy gross monsters. As would some kind of law or even constitutional amendment that installs a morals clause into the service contract of elected officials.
That to my knowledge is the only way a supreme court justice can be removed from the bench. Some immoral impropriety or ethics violation. If that punishment is warranted for the judiciary it is long overdue for the legislative.

A fear of firing ,even though it's illegal is worked around.if I had to sue city hall ,do you think I would see a promotion? No.they would make excuses and do it so well i couldn't hold them legally. They do these things to the military. We didn't hire him because he wasn't the most qualified .yet it's over his time away.

Selling out people for what isn't even real money. What a shame we've become as a people. Makes , "In God We Trust", take on a whole new meaning on the back of that Federal Reserve Note. That's what so many worship now days. At the cost of everything that really matters.
