1. Every Trump voter in the armed forces is looking for photos with Franken on the USA tours n/t

2. Exactly.

3. Always during photo ops. I don't know about you, but if I were a serial groper...

...the last time I would do it is when other people are around, at least one with a camera, and me as the focus of the picture.

13. Jimmy Savile was found to have sexually assaulted a girl

 

In the middle of a restaurant where a biography of him was being filmed. Same guy groped a woman on a major TV show.

14. Savile was widely known to be a serial sexual danger to young women and others

over a long period among the BBC hierarchy and a number of his colleagues - all shamefully covered up.

To date, there is no evidence that Franken had a reputation as a serial groper during his time at SNL nor on USO tours - with SNL, quite the contrary. In the current climate, if there evidence of such a reputation, I'd guess we'd have heard of it as "corroboration" of the pattern you seem so eager to see.

It's interesting that your mind went immediately to such an extreme comparison.

5. A simple probabilistic argument

Facts:

1) All of these allegations appear to rely on photo ops.
2) In none of the photo ops is any groping contact evident.

What is the probability that Franken would grope someone at a photo op and each time the photographer did not capture it?

17. That's just how dastardly Franken is!

See, he has the uncanny ability to tell the split second a camera is about to go off, and he repositions his hands just before the image is captured. He's a warlock or something, I tells ya!

Let's see how long it takes this fantastical nonsense to be quoted seriously. My money is on Fox repeating it.

7. They're not relentless.

Whatever the truth of them, they seem deliberately, conveniently spaced, to keep all this going.

10. There is a coordinated effort behind this

It's really a campaign to remove Franken - at least, to smear Democrats and solidify the base for Moore

8. It totally smacks. Let the ethics investigation continue.

Not only is there a driving need to discredit Franken because he is such an effective warrior against Republicans, he is a part of SNL history. An SNL that the Cretin hates in the same vein as his all-things-Obama hatred.

The Cretin doesn’t ever overlook a mocking and is willing to destroy the country in his quest for petty vengeance. So are his supporters.

Republicans hate the shredding of their lying assed administration in Congressional hearings and see a typical holier than thou, pile on opportunity.

I believe Franken.
I do not believe his named accusers.
I believe this is politically driven smear.

That has nothing to do with my passionate desire to see brave women finally confront power driven sexual predators and hideously entitled men and have them punished.

15. I also think it's possible for some of this to be inadvertent.

The things that happen when people are close together for a photo. I don't know.

But something smells for sure. I admit to being totally partisan. I'm willing to ditch Franken if he becomes a political liability but certainly not before the ethics committee rules. Let these people testify under oath and fair questioning.

16. Apparently Franken

Gets off fondling women who voted for the maggot in full view of the ....military ..USO troops... husbands... and cameras.
He is always seen squeezing deformed persons with
"Air boobs" on their shoulders and butts on their backs.

If this isn't a plot to get him out of the Senate by curiously timed accusations to keep the story going, it's to destroy his reputation and or effectiveness .
