Franken resigns and Moore is elected. This country sucks.
Roy Moore molested little girls and to punish him we have to fire Al Franken!
(I kid, I kid, sorta...)
Someone remind me who the party of self responsibility and Christian values is again?
Democrats don't play dirty enough. We're going to lose a good senator because of this.
If he’s replaced by Keith Ellison, though, it would be funny to watch the Evangelical response.
Hold on a moment.......
Sen. Al Franken disputed a report Wednesday that he will resign on Thursday. Minnesota Public Radio reported he will step down, citing a Democratic official who has spoken to the senator as well as key aides. But Franken tweeted shortly after that the story was "not accurate," and that "no final decision has been made." Franken, a Minnesota Democrat, faced calls to resign from fellow Democrats after multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
Republicans have already stolen the Presidency and a Supreme Court seat, why not add a Senate seat to hit the trifecta.
The chickens need to come home to roost. In both parties. It's a matter of time.
No argument with your point of view, it's just my observation that time is not the determining factor, it's willingness.
Maybe he will switch parties so he can keep his seat.

Hold on now we take child molesters not Liberals. What kind of sick bastards do you think we are?
I hope Moore gets beat.
That is the state of the US right now unfortunately, doing the "right thing" is actually in many cases bad for your goals as a party. The Republicans don't care about being right or wrong they just want to win. The Dems are trying to do the right thing and it's costing them seats. Bill Maher talks about this all the time on his HBO show, at first I thought he was just nuts but the more I pay attention the more I see what he's saying, at some point he thinks the Dems are going to have to figure out they need to win first, and then do the right thing.
ALl that said, I think Franken should resign, but then I think Roy Moore should have pulled out of the race and now the RNC is financially backing him again so what do I know.
The D's taking the "moral high ground" at this point wins the them absolutely nothing, and in fact, poses a further threat to what's left of the D's ability to affect the governing process. Franken should simply say he's sorry, get professional help, and let the voters of Minnesota decide his fate. Everyone is certainly entitled to their opinion on this, including other Democratic Senators.
Running roughshod over people (guilty until proven innocent) seems rather un-American to me. Democrats can disavow him, the party can refuse to support him, but as to his office, sans a criminal conviction, it's up to Franken and/or the voters to work out. Anything else should be a matter for the courts. And yes, in general, the same logic applies to Moore..... We can all have our opinions, the Republicans can love him or hate him, the party can support him or not, but sans a criminal conviction, it's up to Moore and/or the voters of Alabama to make that decision.
