Mitch McConnell Calls on Roy Moore to Step Down over Allegations – But Calls for Review of Al Franken After Proven Sexual Assault
GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnell took time this week to call on Judge Roy Moore to step down after several women came forward with unproven allegations from 38 years ago.
Several allegations against Moore have been disproven.
McConnell told Judge Moore to step down on Monday.
But on Thursday after photo evidence was produced showing Senator Al Franken sexually assaulting a woman Mitch McConnell recommended an ethics review.

Just curious. Has McConnell made a public statement in support of Moore now that the Nelson yearbook has been outed as an obvious forgery?
I mean, he came out against Moore pretty much instantly after the first accusation. I figured he'd be just as fast after exoneration?

Here is Judge Moore’s response to McConnell’s disgusting double standard.
Al Franken admits guilt after photographic evidence of his abuse surfaces.
Mitch: "Let's investigate."
In Alabama, ZERO evidence, allegations 100% rejected.
Mitch: "Moore must quit immediately or be expelled."
