You are reading page 4 of Me too. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

No one here, at least not me, is arguing that Moore should be a US senator.

Neither should Al Franken.

And the Bum shouldn't be sitting at the WH. If Franken needs to go, so does the Bum.

Women haven't sued Franken. They have sued the Bum.

And the Bum and Moore and Weinstein all offer up the same defense: I'm going to sue the Washington Post/NY Times.

Notice that none of the three has done so. Because they are guilty, guilty and guilty.

He should step down if Trump, who was far more heinous that him, and with his attitude, encourages a rape culture, does.

I suspect Franken will do everything in his power to make this as aright as he can. He admitted he was wrong and his accuser personally forgave him.

Are you going to apply that standard across the political playing field? One allegation and you are gone, regardless of any or all other facts or considerations?

Awesome, I'm all in on that one.

Sorry Senator Franken, you will be joined by SCORES of politicians on the national AND local level if the standard is now one error in judgment and the associated piggish behavior. Now we are going to accept and believe the fullness of every woman's accusation, even those against Trump, right.

Every claim should be believed, I am ok with that.

If we posit that a senator with one incident should resign, what should be done about a president with a history of sexually inappropriate behavior with multiple accusations over years?

Maybe Dennis Hastert should not be permitted to collect his congressional pension if we are serious about this.

Good, lets drain the swamp. There will be very few men left in the paying field, then, however.

Oh deers.

Where are all the women who were grabbed by Trump? Have we heard from even one? He said it was locker room talk, and he apologized.

SC_RNDude - I read no hypocrisy here by anyone. The only exception would be ANYONE who continues to support Trump, Moore or Franken, and turns a blind eye towards their inappropriate behavior. Might that be you??? No need to directly answer here. It's one of these questions meant to ask one's self. It's an exercise in self-reflection.

I support Franken.

He admitted his piggish behavior, apologized I a meaningful way, and opened himself to whatever consequences may follow. THAT reflects personal integrity, IMV.

Of course, should it become suspect that he is a serial harasser them he will deserve the scorn and judgements that flow his way. Something about the tone and content of his statements suggest that there won't be a parade of Franken victims, like there is for some.

It's funny to me that evangelical Trump supporters don't believe in confession, apology, and forgiveness unless it is politically convenient for them.

I am listening to an NPR report on AL female Republicans supporting Roy Moore. It is truly sad for these women. Their logic is that "we have never heard" of these reports before (so that makes the allegations untrue because YOU never heard of them earlier?).

They also claim he moral (fondling and groping teenagers is moral and taking a million dollars from a nonprofit is moral?), and he "is innocent until proven guilty."

It is unfortunate that these women don't understand that Moore isn't on trial. He is instead, running for US Senate. There is a difference.

Yes, Ted, you were right earlier when you wrote there is something seriously wrong with some of the citizens of this country.

I believe it is a lack of education, and self-respect.

This is from The Hill. Sarah Huckabee Sanders making nonsensical excuses for her boss, the Bum. Somebody needs to tell her that the American people didn't elect the Bum, the Electoral College did.

The White House said Friday that the difference between the allegations of sexual misconduct against Sen. Al Franken and those against President Trump is that the senator "has admitted wrongdoing."At Friday's press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to a question about whether it would be "fair" to investigate the claims against the president, saying that the allegations against Trump were already covered "extensively" during the campaign.

"We addressed that then," Sanders said. "The American people I think spoke loud and clear when they elected this president."

"Senator Franken has admitted wrongdoing and the president hasn't, I think that's a very clear distinction," she continued.

is is from The Hill. Yep, Sarah Huckabee Sanders making nonsensical excuses for her boss, the Bum.

Yes, the difference is that Franken has integrity and ethics, and Trump has none.

He's called for an investigation into his own actions and another poster says, willing to take the consequences...ROFL!

Senate ethics panel has issued no punishments in 9 years

I give him credit for not being a denier like Trump. Trump slams Franken, but is all quiet about pedophile Moore. I'm curious as to why you might think this is ok? Why do you still support this guy?

Is accepting responsibility and apologizing sincerely for behavior that you are currently shamed by foreign and amusing to all social conservatives, or just you? You still prefer the guy who simply calls his accusers liars?

Who would have ever dreamed that the party of personal responsibility would be so indifferent to actual displays of personal responsibility. It's almost as if conservative self righteous family values rhetoric is nothing but a smoke screen for authoritarian policy.

Hey, did anyone read that another family values, anti LGBTQ lawmaker is resigning after his gay office sex games were exposed?
