Two prominent Minnesota Democrats are calling for Al Franken to resign after model and radio host Leeann Tweeden came forward accusing the Senator of sexual assault.
Not only did Tweeden give details of the sexual assault by Democrat Senator Al Franken, she released a very damning and disturbing photo of the cretin groping her while she was asleep.
Social media was set ablaze Thursday morning with conservatives calling for Al Franken to resign using the hashtag #ResignAl.
A second woman also came forward accusing Franken of harassment.
The second accuser is Melanie Morgan of Media Equalizer.

Two prominent members of Minnesota’s Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party are calling on Sen. Al Franken to resign his Senate seat following allegations of sexual misconduct.
Although many other Democrats have called the former comedian’s actions disturbing, state auditor Rebecca Otto and Megan Thomas, president of the party’s official Feminist Caucus, say he should leave office.
Otto, a candidate for governor in Minnesota, said in a statement that “I believe it’s in the best interest of Minnesotans and of women everywhere for Senator Franken to resign, and to set an example to powerful men across America that sexual harassment will not be tolerated.”
Thomas, meanwhile, told the Washington Examiner that Franken’s misconduct was “every woman’s nightmare on a bus.” In a Facebook post, the longtime party organizer wrote that while she appreciated his progressive vote record, the fear Franken will instill in women is enough reason for his departure.
“The ‘political’ answer is to wait and not overreact. But I also know that the next time I see him in person I will, however fleeting or unneeded, be afraid because of what he is doing in that picture. No one should fear their elected representatives, so, sadly, for me, I think the Senator should resign,” she wrote.
Thursday after photo evidence was produced showing Senator Al Franken sexually assaulting a woman, Mitch McConnell recommended an ethics review.
