UPDATE: Senators Now Call for Franken’s Resignation After Seventh Woman Comes Forward

UPDATE: Senators Now Call for Franken’s Resignation After Seventh Woman Comes Forward

I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.’”

Early this morning, Politico reported a seventh woman has accused Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) of sexual misconduct. She claimed he tried to forcibly kiss her.

The “zero tolerance” senators have finally called for him to resign…after the seventh accuser.

When the woman fled the room, Franken told her, “It’s my right as an entertainer.”

Resignation Calls

Mike wrote a piece for this morning that just yesterday, Sen. Kristin Gillibrand (D-NY) refused to call for Franken’s resignation, even though, at the time, six women accused him of sexual misconduct.

But I guess the magic number is seven because she has called for him to resign:

Interesting tidbit: Franken said he is holding a press conference tomorrow. Did he let his colleagues know and now they’re taking a stand?

Now they can play hero:

The Seventh Woman

From Politico:

The aide, whose name POLITICO is withholding to protect her identity, said Franken (D-Minn.) pursued her after her boss had left the studio. She said she was gathering her belongings to follow her boss out of the room. When she turned around, Franken was in her face.

The former staffer ducked to avoid Franken’s lips. As she hastily left the room, she said, Franken told her: “It’s my right as an entertainer.”

“He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me. It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like ‘Wait, what is happening?’ But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked,” the aide said in an interview. “I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.’”

The former staffer, who was in her mid-20s at the time of the incident, said she did not respond to Franken.

Politico contacted the woman’s two former colleagues that corroborated her story. One of the colleagues confirmed that the woman told her about the incident right after it happened, including the entertainer line. The other colleague said the woman told her about the encounter in 2009 or 2010.

The woman told Politico she just wants Franken “to acknowledge that his behavior towards her and other women was intentional.”

Franken has denied these allegations:

“This allegation is categorically not true and the idea that I would claim this as my right as an entertainer is preposterous. I look forward to fully cooperating with the ongoing ethics committee investigation,” Franken said in a statement to POLITICO.

She is the seventh woman to accuse Franken of sexual misconduct.Radio news anchor Leeann Tweeden claimed that Franken forcibly kissed her and groped her breast as slept in 2006 during a USO tour. A few days later, Lindsay Menz said that Franken grabbed her butt during a photo-op at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010.

HuffPo published a report with claims from two anonymous females with similar cases to Menz’s. They said that Franken groped their butts at a political event and then suggested they all go to the bathroom.

Army veteran Stephanie Kemplin told CNN last week that Franken groped her breasts during a photo-op in 2003. An unnamed former New England elected official claimed that Franken tried to plant a “wet, open-mouthed kiss” on her in 2006.

It’s bizarre how this continues to happen…must be an adrenaline rush for these wackos.

    Perspective is everything.

    Twenty five years ago the lefties tied themselves in knots convincing the nation that an accused serial rapist and his enabling wife belonged in the White House. We were lectured ad nauseam about how character had absolutely nothing to do with Willy Jeff’s ability to do the job. We weren’t electing a Pope, doncha know. All bimbo eruptions were met with a scorched earth response. The left has been absolutely fine with this behavior for decades already.

    What lesson were pervs like Weinstein, Lauer, and Rose supposed to learn? Pretty much open season on women without consequences as long as you exercised just a little bit of discretion and if anybody objects in any meaningful way you destroyed them. Not even getting caught face banging an intern in the White House stuck to Willy J. What faux outrage existed on the left was not about him being a sexual predator… it was because he dared to lie to a grand jury.

    What has Franken done that hasn’t earned the party’s patriarch winks and nods his entire adult life? None of these pious female Dem Senators knew that Conyers has a five decade record of being a world class pig? Bullshit. They own this mess.

      The AMAZING thing in all this is the fact that a famous, powerful man can always find someone attractive to willingly have sex with them. All it takes is a smile and a little charm.

      The takeaway is how ugly the likes of franken and bill klinton in that they cannot follow the open door to a lot of fun. Instead, they use sexual contact to abuse, humiliate and control women.

      No surprise bill klinton married an emotionally ugly woman, nor any surprise he habitually grew into an abuser himself. (Who wouldn’t despise women after a few years of being married to hillary klinton?)

      Every hip thrust of bill’s into Anita Broaddrick pelvis was a fantasized punch into hillary klinton’s face (including bill klinton’s mother’s face.)

      As for franken, he is infantile, sexual deviate. Who do you remember – even from GRADE school – who has so proudly posed fora photo while molesting a female in front of other people? You remember any morons like that? Now, think of them as adults: you’ve got franken.

Or maybe they are just pigs.

Franken is very sorry that he doesn’t recall this alleged harassment. P.S. – he won’t resign.

clearly if Franken can’t remember, not only does he need to resign but also go to a special memory program – early onset Alzheimer.

Well, as long as Conyers resigned. ֎Smirk֎

NBC is reporting six Democrat senators have called for Smalley to resign. He’ll be gone by the end of the day. He’ll get replaced by another Democrat.

They’re now going to go scorched Earth on Roy Moore – and if Moore wins – tie every Republican to him.

I’m not sure this is just about tainting GOP with Roy Moore. There were legitimate cries of racism over Conyers being asked to resign when Franken was not.

Personally, I think there is some bad stuff that is about to come out and they can’t dump these guys fast enough. This is certainly ominous. https://twitter.com/senatorshoshana/status/938394708426059776

    I don’t think the cries of racism were especially legitimate, considering that the charges against Conyers were much worse, involving actions when he was in office and misuse of public funds.

    Not that I support Franken. He’s a creep. He always has been. Minnesota voters elected him, at least the second time, personality and all.

    RE: “there is some bad stuff that is about to come out”,
    if they’re Democrats then that’s a given…..

    Petrushka in reply to elle. | December 6, 2017 at 2:38 pm

    Perhaps the bad stuff is that Mueller and Comey covered up hundreds of complaints by female FBI agents and allowed retaliation.

    Just a thought.

I saw this Franken & Davis skit on SNL when it was first broadcast, and I’m surprised the video hasn’t surfaced yet. The sponsor card at the end is the icing on the cake.

What ever happened to the “One Free Grope” rule?

People often say “everyone has a number”….now we know that 7 is that number for the Democrats.

Were the governor a republican, these women would be silent.
They know Frankenmonster is damaged goods, might lose to a R in an election.
Nothing more. No virtue. Just the opposite.

They’re trying to regain the moral high ground to demand Trump resign or be impeached. The difference is that the people elected Trump *knowing* of his past.

“…senators have finally called for him to resign…”

Democrat polling must have Moore in the lead and the only way for them to gain a seat in the Senate is for the Republicans to refuse to seat Moore.

Gov. Mumbles of Minnesota will probably appoint Rep. Kieth Ellison (D, MN) as the first Muslim in the Senate as Franken’s replacement.

Everyone involved here is so brave. So brave.

Apparently the calls have worked:

Conyers should be next. “Retiring” is not good enough. He should be OUT!
