1. I'm not interested in compromising my principles just because my enemy does.

4. Um... we just compromised the principle of due process

while trying to not compromise on a principle of zero tolerance on sexual harassment.

With a little patience, we could have not compromised on either.

We tried to climb to the moral high ground and ended up tumbling down the other side.

6. If Franken is as strong, sharp and well-spoken as everyone believes him to be, why do people think

his own party could push him out? He himself said he couldn't be an effective senator during the ethics investigation -- which he asked for.

7. Would you be effective at work...

...if you knew almost all of your coworkers, many of whom you thought were your friends, wanted you gone and didn't even want to give you a chance to defend yourself?

We've been wrong all along.

2. And Roy Moore.

But that wasn't sexual harassment; that was just child molestation so no big deal.

5. Not compromising my principals either but,

The republicans are and anyone who doesn't make even the highest leader go through the ethics committee is. It's wrong. It's wrong for ANYONE to harass anybody and ALL should be held to account!

8. And except for Sen. Paul

But I have been cautioned to wait and see if the 35 Democratic Senators who demanded Franken's resignation will demand Paul's resignation as well. Not sure how long that wait is going to be, but I think holding my breath is contra-indicated.
