Al Franken Won’t Resign for Sexual Assault – Of Course He Won’t, He’s a Democrat!
On Thursday Senator Al Franken was accused of groping, unwanted kissing by radio anchor and model Leeann Tweeden.
Franken couldn’t deny it.
There was photo evidence.
Radio anchor Leeann Tweeden traveled with Al Franken on a USO tour in December 2006.
Tweeden described the sexual abuse on the KABC website where she works as an announcer.
There was even a photo of Franken kissing Tweeden on stage.
But Al Franken won’t resign.
He is a Democrat, after all. Only Republicans are expected to step down after accusations of sexual impropriety.
Instead Franken will contemplate on his behavior over the holiday.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., plans on staying in Congress for the time being after a sexual misconduct accusation rocked the up and coming senator last week.
A spokesperson for Franken said “no,” the senator will not resign in the wake of the accusation.
“He is spending time with his family in Washington, D.C., and will be through the Thanksgiving holiday, and he’s doing a lot of reflecting,” the spokesperson told The Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Leann Tweeden, a current radio anchor at Los Angeles station KABC, wrote a story accusing Franken of kissing and groping her while the two were in Afghanistan together in 2006.
A photo was also published in which Franken is pretending to grope her breasts while she slept.
