Senator Al Franken Becomes Latest Public Official Accused of Sexual Harassment…

Following the construct of the social movement as it originated (Hollywood) and continues to be rolled out (DC), it must be accepted the Democrat narrative engineers believe there’s a pot of ideological -and electoral- gold at the end of this rainbow.

That said, two women step forward today to accuse vulnerable Democrat Senator Al Franken of sexually inappropriate behavior and harassment. KABC host and personality Leeann Tweeden (here) and Media Equality Project Co-Founder, Melanie Morgan (here), both step forward today to accuse Senator Franken.

Leeann Tweeden tells her story here:

(Via ABC) A female radio host claims Al Franken, now Minnesota’s junior Democratic senator, groped her while she was sleeping aboard a military plane on her way home from a USO tour over a decade ago. She also claimed he forcibly kissed her when they were performing together for troops overseas.

“I felt disgusting and violated,” Leeann Tweeden wrote in a post this morning on KABC’s website.

Tweeden, who is a radio news anchor on Los Angeles station KABC (owned by Cumulus Media), described what she said took place between her and the comedian.

She claims that in 2006 Franken insisted on kissing her as part of a rehearsal for an act. He later groped her while she was asleep on a plane, she also claimed. Franken was elected senator in 2008. (read more)

Senator Franken released the following statement:

“The first thing I want to do is apologize: to Leeann, to everyone else who was part of that tour, to everyone who has worked for me, to everyone I represent, and to everyone who counts on me to be an ally and supporter and champion of women. There’s more I want to say, but the first and most important thing—and if it’s the only thing you care to hear, that’s fine—is: I’m sorry.

“I respect women. I don’t respect men who don’t. And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed.
“But I want to say something else, too. Over the last few months, all of us—including and especially men who respect women—have been forced to take a good, hard look at our own actions and think (perhaps, shamefully, for the first time) about how those actions have affected women.

“For instance, that picture. I don’t know what was in my head when I took that picture, and it doesn’t matter. There’s no excuse. I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself. It isn’t funny. It’s completely inappropriate. It’s obvious how Leeann would feel violated by that picture. And, what’s more, I can see how millions of other women would feel violated by it—women who have had similar experiences in their own lives, women who fear having those experiences, women who look up to me, women who have counted on me.

“Coming from the world of comedy, I’ve told and written a lot of jokes that I once thought were funny but later came to realize were just plain offensive. But the intentions behind my actions aren’t the point at all. It’s the impact these jokes had on others that matters. And I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to come to terms with that.

“While I don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit as Leeann does, I understand why we need to listen to and believe women’s experiences.
“I am asking that an ethics investigation be undertaken, and I will gladly cooperate.

“And the truth is, what people think of me in light of this is far less important than what people think of women who continue to come forward to tell their stories. They deserve to be heard, and believed. And they deserve to know that I am their ally and supporter. I have let them down and am committed to making it up to them.” (link)

Senator Al Franken is up for re-election this year and was already vulnerable to losing his seat.  Unlike the quisling republican wing within the UniParty their democrat counterparts will circle the wagons and look for the best political use of the issues.

Back in 2012 the professional Democrat apparatus decided to advance the gender side of politics for political benefit.  It’s a broad strategy.

    I wonder if the photographer (who I guess apparently didn’t stop the situation) will get off worse than Franken. Will the photographer lose his job? Being part of the swamp, I’m sure that Franken has a nice nest egg set aside.

    Al Franken’s original response was short and weak. He was bashed so hard that he came out with his stronger apology.

    First apology…

    The line “electoral gold at the end of the rainbow” reinforces what I’ve been thinking will have happen. Given the tweet sent out attacking Franken from Valerie Jarrett I’m iconvinced then ever I’m right. They’re going to run Michelle in 2020 (2024 if they can wait that long).

    Maybe they’re sending out a broader warning by going after Franken in a state they know a prog will win or there’s some big Obama donor that has an issue w Franken or wants his sea. Does anyone know what prog has a breakout career in MN? A Muslim candidate perhaps?

    Pay attention to Kirsten Gillebrand as she is the one inside making the move to purge Congress of harassers. They absolutely have a planned strategy in play and it’s big.

    And don’t underestimate how valuable this is in distracting from Uranium One and Awan Contra.

    I’ve always thought that Clinton was cashiered via Lewinsky in order for the swamp to avoid exposing themselves. They had to get rid of him but they didn’t want to expose the corruption of Loral Aerospace, Lippo Group, Johnny Chung, etc. Clinton took money from the Chinese military and in return they were provided with missile technology. China could not reliably launch rockets until they had this technology.

    I am troubled by the trend to try, convict and punish people in the court of public opinion. This sort of behavior trickles down and is not relegated to DC or Hollywood. Many a good man has been falsely accused and lives ruined over the false accusations of false witnesses and coached “victims.” It is a dangerous game being played in our culture right now.

    A story on The Gateway Pundit suggests that Roger Stone is behind the Al Franken and that he has a whole list of Democrats to reveal. If true, Dems are probably shocked to be beaten at their own game, which I think is hilarious but still a dangerous game to play in our culture where people are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty.

    • jmclever,

      Very good point. What is going on is a form of the Salem Witch Trials in which people are presumed to be guilty, unless proven innocent. Their only chance at leniency is to confess that they really were witches, whether or not that is true.

      However, Roger Stone’s strategy, if it is indeed his, is the only way to end these media lynchings. Right now the Left Stream Media (and the Drudge Report) are reveling in each new sexual accusation. The sexual smear October surprise lynching of Judge Moore has their full approval.

      It reminds me of when the Left Stream Media were reveling in their good-vs-evil Charlottesville narrative, and President Trump took the wind out of their narrative by pointing out that both sides were at fault. You can’t end this without punching back.

        Good. Maybe we can get rid of some crooked incumbents. Will Kasie Hunt be fired by NBC for enabling the Minnesota Masher? She is like Hillary to Bill.

    Right now,
    I stand for the Judge. I fear for that his comments about leaving in a box may give some, ideas…
    Praying for him and his family….and his bodyguards.

    Just saw his wife on Fox and she delivered an elegant and passion filled speech. Beautifully spoken for the women of AL. I did not know that the Judge had graduated from West Point and also served in Vietnam…that just added to his appeal, am thinking…I just wish I lived in AL so I could vote for him.
