These are the Senators calling on Franken to resign.



Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii; Kamala Harris, D-Calif.; Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.; Maggie Hassan, D-N.H.; Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis.; Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.; Maria Cantwell, D-Wash.; Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D.; Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev.; Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill.; Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., also issued statements or postings on social media Wednesday calling on Franken to step down.
The 14 women were joined by 14 male Senate Democrats: Schumer, Durbin, and Sens. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Michael Bennet of Colorado, Patrick Leahy of Vermont, Ed Markey of Massachusetts, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Tom Carper of Delaware, Martin Heinrich of New Mexico, Gary Peters of Michigan, Tom Udall of New Mexico and Ron Wyden of Oregon. In addition, Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Angus King of Maine ó both independents who caucus with Senate Democrats ó have called on Franken to step down. Tom Perez, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, also called on Franken to resign.
Call, FB, Tweet. This is dangerous for us.

20. The list includes 14/16 of Democratic women in the Senate. So I'm wondering

if they know more than we know.

23. I don't care what they think they know. Senator Franken has the right to due process.

And so does the public and his constituents.

I will ask how they define due process, and why they are acting so hastily.

A large circular firing squad.

6. They're giving a green light to trolls to accuse any democratic senator

True or false, we'll force them to step down. Not smart.

They still don't seem to understand that we're at war right now... fighting for our "democracy." Rethugs have literally come with their guns and we have plastic spoons.

This will only embolden Bannon and other GOP dirty tricksters. We need the due process system to have a chance to work. This is beginning to look like a panic attack.

13. For sure.

This is why "they go low, we go high" doesn't work. Ratfucking and dirty tricks work unless you fight back. I am not saying that we should be as bad as the Republicans but you need to show spine sometimes. People respect strength and looking weak demoralizes voters.

So many threads, so posting here, thanks for this list.

Iíve read all the accusations and my outrage meter just isnít budging much here on the Franken stories. But as some have said, if more stuff comes out beyond what weíve been told, that may change.

Equitably. Otherwise it is chaos and anarchy.

30. Welcome to DU, Softail1!

By now, of course, Al Franken has announced his resignation. What a lousy day.

And I'm assuming Kirsten Gillibrand and the rest of 'em will be holding a Senator Roy Moore to the same standard?







Yeah, right... I already know the answer to that one. We all do.

29. Spineless is the word of the day

Franken is being swiftboated. Democrats who call for his resignation and not Trump's are spineless. The women making exaggerated claims against Franken are trivializing the experiences of real victims of sexual assault. And the GOP laughs while foisting Roy Moore on us.
