Are Democrats Really Going to Take Out Al Franken This Unfairly & Dangerously?



After an avalanche of Democratic senators calling for their colleague Al Franken to resign due to a series of sexual harassment allegations, it sure seems like his days are numbered. As a conservative, there was a time, not at all long ago, when I would have rejoiced at the demise of such far-left zealot.

However, based on what we currently know, I believe this situation is the most unfair and dangerous takedown of a prominent politician in recent memory. In my view, Democrats should be humiliated for engaging in what is clearly a strategic knifing of Franken in an effort to better position themselves to attack Donald Trump and Roy Moore, two people against whom have been leveled far more serious and credible allegations of sexual abuse.

Is he being thrown under a bus?

3. To me, this is stupid beyond belief.

Hit this link if you have 3 or 4 minutes to consider what is being done here:
title of link:.... What Franken did was like "shoplifting" What Trump and Moore did "was holding up a bank with guns."

5. If Franken resigns, I hope that it will trigger Trumps accusers to come out again.

It defies all logic that a serial sexual abuser sits in the White House and that an accused child molester will likely be sworn into the Senate. 😠😠😠

8. Yes. He is being thrown under a bus, and rolled back over and over again.

And, yes. The Dems who are calling for his resignation are shooting themselves, and the rest of us in the foot. Sickening. Just sickening.

10. I think he shouldn't resign

What happened to this ethics committee that was supposed to happen?

This whole thing is beginning to resemble the hysteria that surrounded the Salem witch trials in the late 1600's. Especially when they are anonymous.
