It's funnier than any of the "comedy" he ever did.

He's grabbing her breasts


He’s pretending to.

From the picture, I wasn't sure this wasn't a stagged photo-opp.
But after reading the article, no... sounds like she was really asleep... and is pissed about the situation. It also sounds like he also stuck his tongue down her throat against her will...

If the allegations are true, I don't see a way out for him.

This is going to turn to such a chicken little event, everybody thinking they were 'blanked' it will become meaningless. And the 'Real' victims will find it hard to even bring charges most likely.

just my opinion.

Franken must GO!
No argument.
Credible Accusation + Evidence (photo) = GUILT


Maybe he was performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

she's not a veteran she's a former playboy bunny on a uso tour.

is this worst than walking in on unsuspecting teens while they're dressing?


So ex-playboy bunnies do not have the right to be protected from sexual assault and harassment?

If he's done it once, he's done it many times. Fraken is probably one of the molesters on the House Floor.

Good riddance to Al. His droning questioning during committee hearings is so annoying to the ears.

Where did you see that? It says she is a KABC Anchor

Is that Demi Moore he's groping? Looks like G.I. Jane

You should read the article the young woman involved wrote about the entire USO tour she was a part of with Franken. Certainly does not rise to what we are witness to from others but does not excuse the behavior either.

As for "locker room" behavior...you are kidding right ? Surely you realize that type of behavior is no longer accepted if it ever was. Hands to yourself...mouth closed and eyes straight ahead from this day forward...i would even consider skipping the locker room and go straight home for the foreseeable furture.

Looks like Al may be the next politician in line for leaving politics...

source



Ummm...good...it couldn't happen to a finer fella...

Shows that if your an unfunny washed up comedian...you too can be a senator...

Bu...bye...Al don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya...



YouSir


What do you mean bye bye?

Do you actually believe that the democrats will treat him the same way they treat Republicans that do this and demand he resign?

Hahahahahaha!!!


It looks like it is being covered by CNN. It is mentioned on the red banner. I'm not sure if it is the same incident, however.



No Republicans are demanding Trump resign for his sexual misconduct allegations. Democrats went after Weinstein.


What about Roy Moore?

You know, the nonstop coverage of him needing to resign, coupled with the non coverage of Menedez who is being accused of inappropriate sex with a minor.

Lets see if Franked is demanded to resign like moore, and if the media outlets demand all democrats denounce Franken and call for his resignation like moore.

The left was doing all kinds of contortions in logic to make it seem like locker room conversation Trump was having meant he was assaulting women.

This is the road the left wants to go down where you can smear anyone for any little infraction that may appear inappropriate regardless of the context.

Al is just joking around. No one got hurt, no one was touched.
Al is one of the good guys, not a swamp creature like Moore or Weinstien or Spacey.
And it hurts us all, no matter whose side you are on. I mean, I feel like suing Spacey over not being able to see the next season of House of Cards.

Anyone with half a brain can se that Al is one of the good guys

Ikr. Her career is irrelevant. The same sh!t is used to defend the Hollywood scumbags.

Doesn't matter, she couldn't consent to his sexual touching.


He’s not even touching her. It’s a gag.


Yeah but the anti-Democrat narrative is too inviting.

It looks like he was kidding around, to me.


Well the woman in the picture says in the Hill article linked in the OP that he forced his tongue down her throat.




Big deal.


Yes, it is a big deal if you are a person who has been screaming about how actions like that are sexual assualt and must be taken seriously.

So now we will see how consistent those people are.


Ruin humor and obfuscate sexual assault to settle a political squabble? Not worth it.


Dont tell me, tell those on the left that have set the standard and ruined humor.

I agree that this picture to me may be in bad taste if he touched her, but its not the end of the world.

However, I wont write off forcing his tongue down her throat like you have. That is a form of assualt that should be addressed.

Nonetheless, lets see how the left responds to this.

did I say that?

nope, just pointed out she's not a soldier. bless your heart.

I think it was in very poor taste but he was a comedian at the time the photo was taken.

the kiss was part of a skit, but yes, I believe this woman was uncomfortable and felt violated and that's wrong!

To evoke these contortions in logic is a poor way to banish them. It’s hypocrites all the way down.

If true, he should resign. The difference between the dems and repubs is that we ostracize our politicians who do this and not defend them or elect them. We give the women the benefit of the doubt.
