80. It's a sad day for Democrats.

The only thing that gives me solace is the hope (yeah, call me Charlie Brown) that Democrats will use the purity they're trying to proclaim against the likes of Trump and Moore and that it will result in electoral success in '18 and '20.
I noticed that MSNBC referenced that Fox news Nazi, Laura Ingraham, who also believes Democrats will use their purity purge to electoral advantage.

Sessions will be soo happy, and the GOP is ecstatically laughing at these idiotic party destroyers. I will never contribute one dime or lift 1 finger to help any of these turncoats.

109. I like Ellison, he's my rep, but I doubt very much he'll end up with Al's senate seat.

First of all, Dayton says he will appoint the lieutenant governor to hold the position until the 2018 special election. Given the circumstances, the MN DFL almost has to run a woman for the permanent position. And that person had better be able to win outstate, which IMO would be very difficult for Ellison. The Democrats Up North are a good deal more conservative than the ones in CD5. I expect the candidate to be someone like Lori Swanson or Betty McCollum.

52. Can you imagine how those who View profile knocked the doors for Senator Sanders feel now?

I have a friends who've told me since yesterday that they WERE devoted Bernie supporters who are less than thrilled with him asking Sen. Franken to resign. Some friends are still staunch Bernie supporters, but even they're not too happy with Berne's telling Franken to resign and he'd not been saying anything about tRumputin or Moore (I see he said that tRumputin ought to think of resigning. Yet Franken has to resign?).

I don't think that Bernie will run for for president in 2020, but if he does he'll have some 'splaining to do of his rape fantasy diary, along with his votes against Amber Alert. And, lest we forget that thuglicans will be vetting him THIS time around, and we know that they know how to vet, and by the time they get through with him, they'll be saying that what he wrote in his diary means that he's for women being raped and that him voting against Amber Alert means that he's hates children, on top of unleashing what's in that rumored 3-inch dossier they have on him and on top of that, what Victoria Tensing, her crazy husband and son are chomping at the bit to say about his wife Jane. I can see the liberal media which doesn't exist running with thuglicans narrative/vetting of Bernie just like they ran with Her emails though.

What do Dems have to enthrall their party?

"A Better Deal"

Yeah, that'll get masses out to the polls. But then again, we don't know if our votes will count or BE counted, because thuglicans like Kris Kobach control almost every part of the voting apparatus from collecting to tallying votes.

64. This is far worse then election day.

The election was stolen away from Hillary and the people of this country by the Russians and Republicans.

Today, the Democrats turned on their own and, like Brutus who stabbed Ceasar, they turned their knives on Al Franken.

I once had hopes that the actions of Trump and the Republicans would galvanize the voters to turn on them in 2018 and 2020 to take back our country. I no longer think that will happen because the Democrats are already self destructing and I am far to angry to even consider being there for them in the future.

121. This especially hurts because I really used to like Sanders.

I will not vote for him or any of them for dogcatcher. I really hope not one of them run for president. I'd have such a hard time not supporting the dem nominee, but these people have proven to be unreliable backstabbers. How could I support them with my money and time after this? I don't think I could?

Adam Schiff or Joe Kennedy for president, no Harris (really loved her before this horrible mistake), no Sanders - same with him. I was on board with Harris before, but absolutely she's proven her lack of worth, same as Sanders and Gillibrand and all the other traitors.

11. It will come back to bite them even worse than previous similar mistakes made by Democrats.

I've seen this sort of group think before among Democrats: the Reagan tax cuts of the 1980's that ballooned the deficit and provided the rationale for the shredding of the social safety net, the 2nd-Amendment-violating and ineffective Assault Weapons Ban of 1994, the early 2000's innuendo against ACORN (not to mention the Swiftboat nonsense against John Kerry), and now this witch trial of Franken. On every one of these issues, Democrats pre-emptively folded on the wrong side of the matter and then suffered entirely predictable and avoidable (had they employed a lick of common sense) consequences.

As far as I am concerned, Democrats just surrendered 2018 and 2020. Why am I expected to slavishly support their continued incompetence as a condition of posting here?

US is so fucked up and dangerous right now, I'm trying to convince my family that we need to move to Portugal which Russia leaves alone because it's not a big power, has a great climate and lots of English and American ex-pats in the Algarave region. I think things will have to get worse (which is guaranteed now that dems gave away 2018 and 2020) before I can get them to budge.

148. You'll have to do it while you're fairly young

I would dearly LOVE to leave this maelstrom of madness. But for me - in my 70s now - I can't fathom leaving our 2 acres of dirt and the aging abode we live in. Too much folderal , toss this - keep that - exotic pets we love - learning a new language and culture.

While I have reasonable health - even tho I get a check each month for being exposed to Agent Orange (not that one - the one that came in 55 Gal drums)(both equally evil though!) I can still walk and maintain this homestead for the most part. While I haven't said such to my wife, I'd be perfectly happy to expire on this very plot.

Anyway, if you're gonna go - get goin' now. Take it from a veteran (of too many calendars), the years SCREAM by as they accumulate.

213. I have lived in the Azores.

At the time, it was like living in the medieval era. Life was ever so slow. Lots of wine and fresh Atlantic seafood.
You could horseback around the island in a day.
Salazar was the dictator at the time, and kept the news censored, so there was no chance for current events info. I lived on the base, and of course we had the AFRTS station, but that was strictly monitored as well.

I would so enjoy to visit mainland Portugal, I have been informed it is quite pleasant.

I don't know enough details of Franken's situation to say if he could have, or should have, tried to stay on. One thing I do know that I feel is pretty much a certainty: Whenever something eventful happens, people will always, always, overreact. Every time. Of course I'm a people too, so ... there's that.

126. Opened special mail from Daily Kos and saw Al's message.

I was ambivalent yesterday as to whether he would or would not resign.

I have no criticism for any and all who appear to be 'over-reacting'. I myself am attempting to stay even keel and not get hyper emotional over circumstances
whether personal or public. That is not always the result I achieve being in this current environment.

As you said, I too don't know enuff of the 'reasoning' that prompted those of his colleagues to call for resignation.

Yes, this news is disturbing, but a reality that will unfold and hopefully evolve and not devolve.

I can't call this yet. We shall see.

244. Exactly, and this needs to be brought up to her nonstop. She took help and support

from the Clintons. So by her own standards, she should resign now that she cannot abide anyone who has ever been accused, whether or not they are guilty -- just the accusations. She should stand by her new principles and resign.

Giver her seat back to Hillary!

I am dead serious about that and I've seen agreement about it here. Hillary was a great Senator from New York and she should run for her seat back. There is no excuse for this hyper-accusational environment when we already got hosed during the election. Franken was far more valuable in the Senate than Gillibrand, who is just stepping on people to make a name for herself. Support Democrats! Don't throw them away to create a brand for yourself. She has also made a mockery of real victims by letting this extreme gossip pass for "accusations." Her judgment is appallingly bad. I am still in shock over this treacherous treatment of a valuable Senator.

However, both of my CA Senators, Harris & Feinstein are on this list. I'd written off Feinstein years ago and declined to vote for her in the last election. I had high hope for Harris...being a seasoned Lawyer I would have thought she would stand by the innocent until proven guilty legal standard. I will now have to re-assess my level of support for her.

I'm angry right now and if these two were up for reelection today they would not get my vote. I may change my mind/opinion on Harris but as I said, I wrote of Feinstein years ago.

83. Her run for Pres is what I read most often on twitter comments, last night.

People were so pissed.
And many said the same thing.
That this was Gillibrand forming the basis for her campaign platform.
She pretty much started her campaign with calling for Franken to resign.
Shoved him out the door for her gain.

the women you mentioned. A new strategy will have to be developed for that.

We're in the middle of a feeding frenzy over anything even hinting at sexually suggestive between men and women, or even men and young men. The Rethuglicans are chortling to themselves right now about how we get ourselves into a dither over identity politics, and they feel like they're too smart to fall for that, or at least their base is too dumb for anything like that.

At this point, you have blue-collar GOP women voters supporting the Donald Trumps and the Roy Moores, and a lot of ticked off Democratic voters being too disgusted to contribute, GOTV, or even vote for themselves. It's the ultimate case of divide-and-conquer.

Hmm, maybe this is the new strategy...

129. Yes

Because my accusation has as much merit as any leveled at Franken? Or do you not think so? One accusation against him was he "squeezed" her waist during a photo that she asked to be taken. And, that accusation seems to be the "straw" that broke the came's back, so to speak... If that is harassment, so is what happened to me.

So, I DEMAND my accusations are just as valid as any against FRANKEN!!!! Or, do you think men cannot be sexually harassed by women? She touched me without my consent! That is HARASSMENT!!

This is not a joke. I am not kidding. And you can bite me for not taking my mental anguish and humiliation seriously.

But, for the record, in this case, it was NOT taken seriously. Taking it seriously would have entailed allowing the accused to defend himself against the accusers without a lynch-mob crying for his head. Taking it seriously would have meant examining the *facts* before deeming the accused guilty.

And, yes, the same with all the others accused.

If Senator Franken had NOT resigned the GOP would have been able to accuse the Democratic Party and progressives of being hypocrites, and rightfully so.

We have taken the moral high ground on this issue with the resignations of Representative Conyers and Senator Al Franken. As much as this hurts in the short run we will be all the better for it.

It is 2017 and Republicans support sexual harassers and even child molesters. On the other hand the Democratic Party removes those from its ranks who show even a hint of sexual impropriety.

It's a gun they were carrying but never had any ammunition. We not only just offered them a full box, but offered to serve as target practice at their favorite firing range.

I now know the true colors of these people, and we can color them all stupid. I am beyond disappointed, especially with Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. If Elizabeth Warren decides to run for president, I will not vote for her, because of this lack of judgement. I do not think Senator Sanders will run again for president, but if he did, I would not vote for him as well. This situation was a true litmus test of political judgment and justice.

By the way, whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Are we going to remove every person from every position without proof? Can anyone just make a statement and ruin a person's life? This is such a dangerous precedent that it is indescribable.

I was exhausted. Now I'm deflated. My "leaders" - out of some apparent personal motivation - didn't listen to their constituents.

LISTEN TO YOUR CONSTITUENTS. WE LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD, NOT WA., WHERE HEALTHCARE IS FREE AND FUTURE LUCRATIVE LOBBYING AND CORPORATE JOBS AWAIT. WE ARE HURTING. LET FRANKEN BE INVESTIGATED FIRST.

I fail to see the grand plan.

Here's what I see. Mueller's investigation resulting in no consequences because the GOP majority won't impeach, and won't convict - and their majority increasing in number with outright white supremacists and fascist plutocrats. YAY KRISTI!

Meanwhile, new supreme court judges turn the US into a dictatorship.

But at least the small minority of remaining democrats - utterly powerless- will be expected to pass Ms. Geilebrand's, she the self-annointed arbiter of all that is moral and pure based on uninvestigated accusations - new moral purity test.

I'm sorry, but there is nothing "moral" about driving a dedicated public servant from office on the basis of a prank photo, a second accusation from a rather dodgy accuser and five anonymous accusations. The ethics committee's investigation should have been permitted to proceed and a report issued. By driving Franken out when they did, they have essentially set up a situation in which any Democrat can be taken out by little more than innuendo, while Republicans continue to elect and seat pedophiles like Roy Moore.

As New Yorker, I have been a strong supporter of Gillibrand. But she has lost my vote for the role she played in this travesty!

If the Dem women senators think they're immune from sexual harrassment charges, they need to think again. It won't be long before the Rs find a young male intern or staffer to say the women constantly making crude remarks about men in the office makes/made him uncomfortable. Or that he was treated differently than female staffers. If a woman can make a charge against a man, the same cases can be made by men against women.

152. Democrats were played..

The accusations reeked of bullshit! Especially when he allegedly said: "It Was His ĎRight As An Entertainer", when he allegedly tried to kiss her. That sounds just like what Trump said on the access Hollywood tape, but we are to believe that Al said something similar years before the access Hollywood tape was made public. Al became a target as soon as he took Sessions down.This is just plain bullshit!

They should have had his back. Now the Bannon Method is a proven, effective tool.

157. So disgusted by the Democratic party

You are not going to get that majority in 2018 because of this.

190. I just called one of their offices and let them have it. Goody two shoes! They

know this is a setup but they helped the GOP get rid of the senator who could drill a hole in those who lie and come before the senate. Democratic senators are losers! SAD!

194. As Joan Walsh said today

ÖThe Dems could have an investigation any time and right now into the 20 women accusing Trump.

But they have no organized, high profile response to the allegations against him. One of which is on tape and has a male witness (Billy Bush).

All the noise they made today and yesterday, they should have been making all along about Trump. They really do seem more upset about Franken than about Trump.

and hopped on the rights of women train.

In just a year! Quick change artists! Amazingly flexible .

Hope it is not a case of doing the right thing for the wrong reason.

217. what is tragic is that I will probably have to vote one of these people in 2020

even though it is only now a vote against trump and his dog handlers.

As far as alerting on this post, why shouldn't we ask said people why they did something that would get them sitebanned here: attacking another democrat!

were the mature adults. It's a scary time ahead.

235. They have gone after Warren already pretty hard with the Pocahontas racist slurs, and when

McConnell blocked her from speaking during Session's hearing. While the Senate Democrats were critical of McConnells selective use of Rule 19 against Warren, it didn't amount to very much. Senator Warren has a lot of enemies among republicans in Congress. The most obvious one is they resent strong opinionated women, so out of that list, I believe the republicans are going to do everything as much as possible to set her up.

In regard to Senator Haris, it hasn't even started. The republicans are going throw all kinds of phony and ugly accusations at her, and there is no doubt in my mind that the republican mouth pieces are going to make sure the MSM outlets spew this out on the airwaves without any rebuttal to them.

This is only the start of an ugly road we are going down

242. I think you are right.

Itís a strategy to eliminate the ďso-calledĒ problems one by one.
No one had Al Frankenís back, while the media and Repugs boiled over on this issue.
For what? Higher values? Meanwhile earth is dying, and along with it all the pilfering and looting by those who can.
We need a throng of Senators like Al Franken.

And holding them accountable for holding court and convicting via means of hearsay and naysay in bathrooms and hallways.
The Democratic Party is better than this.

245. You called it right...mob rule, lynch party, kangaroo court, star chamber.

Al Franken was politically assassinated by members of his own party without a trial, a hearing or a chance to defend himself.

And it was a republican op that got the ball rolling.
