Instead of demanding Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) resign, senators are allowing a known pervert to remain in their ranks, ForAmerica Chairman Brent Bozell said Thursday, reacting to the news of Franken’s sexual harassment and misconduct.
With photo evidence and Franken’s own admission of guilt, Franken should resign immediately, Bozell said in a statement:
“The photo of Sen. Al Franken trying to grope a sleeping woman is all the evidence we need to know there is a pervert in the United States Senate.
“Franken has been caught red-handed conducting lewd and unacceptable behavior, and there should be no other option than that he resign immediately.”
Instead, senators have promised a sham “investigation,” allowing Franken to continue in office, Bozell said:
“The talk of a forthcoming Senate Ethics Committee probe is nothing but smoke and mirrors by his fellow members in the Senate who now have an admitted sexual predator in their midst.
“In so doing, these Senators are allowing a known pervert to remain in office until their so-called ‘investigation.’ Let the record show: The Senate adjourned today at 2:30pm knowing there is a sexual predator in their ranks.”
