Franken accused of groping journalist at Media Matters party for Obama inauguration

Reminder Most of Al Franken's Accusers Are Democrats Plus Nobody Deserves To Be Groped

She also claimed he forcibly kissed her when they were practicing a performance together for troops overseas.

"At the very same time that we are asking Franken to resign from senate - we are allowing an accused child molester to run for senate. After experiencing many vile and partisan personal attacks on my credibility since I went public, I don't blame these women one bit". Under increasing pressure from his Democratic colleagues, Franken announced that he will be resigning in the coming weeks. In the end, Al Franken made the right decision. "While Senator Franken is entitled to have the Ethics Committee conclude its review, I believe it would be better for our country if he sent a clear message that any kind of mistreatment of women in our society isn't acceptable by stepping aside to let someone else serve", Gillibrand wrote in a Facebook post. "I know there has been a very different picture of me painted over the last few weeks, but I know who I really am". "I expected for him to come and share the truth, share what he had experienced, you know, give us some sort of resolve to the situation". I froze. Then he squeezed.

"A couple months ago, I felt that we had entered an important moment in the history of this country", Franken said in his announcement. "And that I have earned a reputation as someone who respects the women I work alongside every day".

After Tweeden came forward, multiple other women accused Franken of groping them.

"It doesn't make me feel good but I would use that word", Tweeden added.

McCollum said that as the state moves forward she is confident that Minn.

A couple of things are going on here: 1) Democrats obviously want to clear the decks to get a clear line of fire on Roy Moore and Donald Trump, and Franken realizes he can't stand in the way; 2) In the current environment in the Democratic party it is hard to question the credibility of any accusers, so Franken would have just dug himself in a deeper hole by trying to defend himself (this is a dynamic that could lead to injustices); 3) Franken is pretty clearly not telling the truth in his denials, and that would have become even more obvious over time. The woman said she appeared on Franken's radio show Air America and after the interview, she tried to shake his hand but he took it and leaned in for a kiss.

"People have asked me, "Do you feel relieved" [now that he has resigned]", she said.
