  1. It seems to me to have been a childish attempt at humor that was totally inappropriate. I appreciate his heartfelt apology and so does Leanne

  2. And when a dem. does something like this all they have to do is say sorry, sorry    won't do it again  and all will be forgiven    but if this had been a  Rep.  they would want him out tomorrow.

  3. So, she agreed to do the skit, she agreed to practice the kiss, then complained because she didn't like it?
    Am I missing the point where she has any right to be outraged?
    …plus he didn't molest several teenagers. You DO see the difference, don't you?

  4. He wrote a scitt in which he kisses a pretty woman.
    Is that the only way you can get a kiss from a woman Al ?
    Your still a frog Fish Lips What a loser.

  5. He needs to RESIGN!!!!!!!!
    AND ARRESTED CHARGED BUT HE'S A DEMOCRAT SO HE WILL NEVER SEE A COURT OR BE PUNISHED!!!!! THEY NEVER ARE…….!

  6. The HUGE difference between Franken and Moore is Franken at least apologized and "seemed" remorseful whereas Moore is surrounding himself with the evangelicals (who somehow always seem to support sexual predators) and refuses to even admit wrongdoing in spite of many accusers. I don't care what party they are from, abuse is abuse and I hope the call outs continue.

  7. Dems been trying to uproot Roy Moore's senate bid, so will they go after freaky Al Franken with the same energy and  vigor? I knew this freakin Al was a freak back before he got into politics. This type of behavior just didn't popup either. He's done it before.And he had the nerve to criticize Trump . What is wrong with Minnesota voters, selecting this freak to represent their state in DC?

  8. judging from the photo I would say this is more sexual harassment than assault.  he was trying to make a joke at her expense using her boobs.  but really he didn't touch her, he touched a bullet proof vest with his fingertips as you can clearly see in the photo.  as for the kiss she was supposedly tricked into…..she is a pretty woman cant expect her to be smart.

  9. I beg to differ; at no time in her disclosure did the woman mentioned that she had been groped! Apparently, the misinterpretation of the photo has led some to say that he actually touched her breast. Nothing could be furthest from the truth.

  10. Please come forward ladies. This Frankenstein is a monster and a scam and a fraud. Washington will be a much better place without him.

  11. Franken was elected to the United States Senate in 2008 in a "razor thin" victory over incumbent Republican Senator Norm Coleman, winning by only a "few hundred" votes…….
    Why didn't these pictures surface way back then when it could have cost him the election?
    They come out now when he is one of the leads in the trump "collusion" investigation.
    I don't care what your "political" views are…..you must admit that the timing seems a bit strange.
    "NUFF SAID"

  12. Another example that you should not be the first to go to sleep during a slumber party, especially if you are the only one there who has breasts.

  13. Both of them are showing today just how mature they are in this matter. Kudos to both of them for handling this in an appropriate manner. Franken really manned up on this. The fact that she dosn't want to cash in on this lends credence to her words.

  14. AL FRANKEN IS A MONSTER AND A HYPOCRITE ! AL FRANKEN NEEDS TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND STEP DOWN ! AL FRANKEN SHAME ON YOU ! YOUR A TOTAL DISGRACE ! AL FRANKEN YOU ARE THE JOKE ! NOW BE A MAN AND STEP DOWN !!!!!!

  15. AL FRANKENSTEIN ————> Lectures people about how wrong sexual abuse is, yet… IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SHORT, HOMELY, PORTLY HYPOCRITE. SHAME ON YOU FRANKENSTEIN !

  16. I can envision this jerk in a new skit: "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough and gosh darn it women like me and if they don't I'll force myself on them."

  17. Ask yourself this. If someone did this at your place of work, would one be fired ? The answer is "yes". So Franken should be fired.

  18. Sure he wants a "special council.". "Do whatever you want . but please don't throw me in that brie patch.aka special council.He knows no punishment will result in its creation. Fire or arrest these criminals..Oh and another thing show me the picture of Roy Moore(like the one we have of Franken) committing his crime and I'll be the first to say. Moore is guilty.

  19. Al Franken only confessed because there was a picture of him groping his accuser. Also, he figured if was going to confess he might as well demand an investigation of himself to make it appear that he has a conscience. He hopes the fervor will die down by the time the Ethics committee gets around to investigating him.

  20. Obvious setup. Al never touched her and she said, 'Okay' to the kiss. Now Al should not have agreed to pose for the picture, which he did not take, but did you see her face drop in the other interview when she realized that an ethics enquiry would be under oath. That's why she is now saying Al should not step down and has done a lot of good for the senate and the country.

  21. I am finally getting to respect you for your fair and balanced reporting on both sides in this issue. I also feel, though, even though Franken apologized he still committed the act. If one side is being crucified you must do the same to the other. Just like Roy Moore, give it more time and a lot comes out of the woodwork. i am sure if Franken did it once he did it multiple times. His apology is only because he was caught on camera. I don't think he would have come forward on his own about this incident.

  22. Senator Al Franken stated he will not step down and will come back to work Monday like nothing ever happened.
    Senator Al Franken thinks he is too big to fail.

  23. President Trump needs to investigate this matter further. He is without a doubt the one person who should judge the Dems regarding these matters of their continually abusing females

  24. This photo is nothing but a sill moment. It is NOT evidence of anything that should be prosecuted as sexual misconduct. The woman is using the photo because she obviously doesn't like Franken. The other incidents happened when she was working with Franken on comedy routines. She was grossed out by Franken, obviously, and had the kind of reaction that someone might have when they just can't stand the person. Making sure everyone knows you feel that the person is below your standards.
