Grr. . . Will somebody take on Vox?

My computer is giving me grief, so I am asking anyone who feels like picking a fight to let Vox know how you feel about statements in this article.

[link:https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/12/21/16807156/al-franken-resign-democrats-disgrace|"Al Franken resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations, but Democrats aren't making him leave in disgrace."

The writer insists that the allegations are credible, and I contend that they may not be so. The word "groping" gets thrown around, as if he was slithering through crowded rooms, feeling women up and down just for sh!ts and giggles.

He was situated close to people for photo opts, and misunderstandings occur, Vox.

I like their website for the most part, but it feels like no one can measure up to their standards of liberal perfection and progressive purity. Anyone who questions any allegation of anything is guilty of insensitivity in the very least.

To my "grr" let me add an "arrgh".
