Al Franken should NOT resign.

Franken has apologized for the gag gone wrong photo. TONS of evidence proves he is NOT some kind of serial sexual harasser. TONS of women he has worked with over DECADES have signed statements saying he was not a harasser AT ALL.

Any progressives saying he should resign need to stop taking the RIGHT WING ATTACK BAIT!

Trump the pussy grabber isn't resigning. Moore the child abuser isn't dropping out. Barton the online nudist isn't resigning. David Vitter the right wing DC Madam prostitution purchaser ran for governor of Louisiana. And on and on.

So ENOUGH! I STAND WITH AL!!

5. Absolutely not. Plus, the ethics inquiry should hang out a few Republicans to dry.

The plus side of this situation, Trump and Moore deserve equal treatment. And the Deplorables who said all Trump's accusers are liars are now faced with their own hypocrisy.

throwing him in the mix just to appear to be fair and even handed.

13. This whole "scandal"

was clearly orchestrated by Roger Stone, with the rest of the the alt-right and Russian bots. America fell for this crap last year, and look what happened.

14. Resign ? Why ?

Because of a photo showing a joke ?

By the way, what did he grab or grope ? She was wearing a padlocked armor...

give a dog a bad name, and hang him !

16. I find it extremely hard to believe that Franken was a butt grabber.

And on the USO tour I feel like it was bad behavior that a lot of people were doing, not to excuse it, but I accept his apology in that context (which he never said, mind you). Humans are fallible, but Franken is not an ass grabber. I refuse to believe that.

17. I think he shouldn't resign, if anything as an example:

You can respond to these sorts of allegations relatively quickly in an adult and responsible way, no lies, no excuses, no counter-accusations, and hang in there.

Otherwise, the lesson is: deny and attack, and never back down.

19. Senator Franken knows what he did and didn't do....

That's y his call for a complete investigation is a brilliant move, the BULLSHIT will face the light of day and the GOP smear machine will have had the tent lifted.

22. I'm groping for the right answer here.

I think Al Franken might appreciate that homage to his dry style of humor and hell no, no resignation!

25. Absolutely.

We can double down defending him, especially since he has reacted so gracefully. The Rs double down defending idiots like the Orange Pussy Grabber, who just says all of his accusers are lying.

26. Yep. As I've been saying,

if Trump and Moore resign and admit they're doing so because of their predatory behavior, then I'll begin to think of the Franken resignation question.
