    Yeah, damnit... why did he just use the “I was drunk and gay” excuse?

    He did? Or are you saying why didn't he?

    I think the gay excuse would fly in this case where the "groping" is pretty much just a bad joke/photo.

    McConnell wants an ethics investigation and Franken welcomes it and will cooperate. I dont understand this. Do we really need an ethics investigation? What is the point of that?

    Two points. The Ethics investigation can lead to expulsion and for Franken it can lead to vindication with a minor wrist slap.

    Roger Stone appears to have known about Al Franken allegations before they went public


    Hours before the allegations against Sen. Al Franken became public Thursday, Trump ally Roger Stone seemed to know they were coming.

    A Twitter account linked to the former Trump adviser posted a quote from Stone in the early hours Thursday morning that suggested he expected allegations involving the Minnesota Democrat to go public.

    QUOTE: Roger Stone says it's Al Franken's "time in the barrel". Franken next in long list of Democrats to be accused of "grabby" behavior.

    ‘He put his hand full-fledged on my rear’: Why Al Franken could be in a lot more trouble now

    In addition, Menz's husband, who was the one who took the picture, confirms his wife told him immediately after the picture that Franken grabbed her inappropriately. According to CNN's Lee, Menz also accused Franken on social media right after the incident of “TOTALLY molested me!”
    I don't think Al survives this.

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    The Tweeden kissing thing is bad, if true.

    Other than that, Franken's butt touches is a solid 2 Weiners out of 10. He's not Bob Packwood.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    A 2 should be enough.

    Sen. Al Franken breaks his silence: "I have a long way back"

    Question: "Have you ever placed a hand on some woman's butt?"

    Franken: "I can't say that that hasn't happened."
    Then some blah blah I'm sorry they feel the way they do blah blah I gotta be more careful blah blah it's crowded at these events blah blah.

    He knew the question was coming and this is his answer. No outright denial, just some hemming and hawing about crowds, shucks, who knows, maybe it did happen, but I gotta be more careful.

    How about, "I don't know, but if I did, it was never intentional."

    I think he got his jollies from copping a feel at crowded events. It was his little thing.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    What's going on in the Equality State?

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/wyomin...sexual-assault

    A woman has accused Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Murray, a Republican considering a run for governor, of sexually assaulting her at a law office in 1982. According to Tatiana Maxwell, then an intern at a Cheyenne law firm that employed Murray, the young lawyer invited her to meet him at the office after hours with pizza and beer. “He was older, handsome and from an old Cheyenne family but I didn’t really know him,” she recalled on Facebook. But when she rejected Murray’s sexual advances, Maxwell said, “Ed wrestled me down to the carpet in front of the receptionist desk, opened his pants, lifted up my blouse and ejaculated on my stomach. I was disgusted and horrified.” She did not report the incident to the firm’s senior lawyers as she was not “physically hurt.” Maxwell also alleged that Murray attempted to apologize to her years later, however, the secretary of state this week unequivocally denied the allegations. “This baseless claim about an encounter from thirty-five years ago is unequivocally false,” Murray said in a statement. “There is no basis to this falsehood whatsoever and it is deeply hurtful to me and to my family, as well as to everyone I serve.”

    "Don't go, Al!"

    Franken urged to reverse his resignation
    The demands from Democrats that he step down were 'the most hypocritical thing I’ve ever seen done to a human being,' Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) says.

    At least four senators are urging Al Franken to reconsider resigning, including two who issued statements calling for the resignation two weeks ago and said they now feel remorse over what they feel was a rush to judgment.


    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who urged Franken not to step down to begin with — at least not before he went through an Ethics Committee investigation — said the Minnesota senator was railroaded by fellow Democrats.


    “What they did to Al was atrocious, the Democrats,” said West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin in an interview for POLITICO’s Off Message podcast to post on Tuesday. Subscribe here.


    Franken's unusual timeline — in his departure announcement he said he’d go “in the coming weeks,” without setting a date — has fed the fleeting hopes that there’s still time to reverse course. However, Tina Smith, Minnesota's Democratic lieutenant governor, was named last week as his appointed successor.

    He needs to resign and not try to justify his behavior as less egregious than Mooore’s.
