"I’m disappointed with my friend Leeann Tweedon. Her partner at KABC John Phillips is a Roger Stone pal & they coached her for weeks to bring Al Franken down. I’d hoped she’d use her voice to speak out for all women again[st] predators like Roy Moore & Donald Trump but she’s a birther."

I hope Franken comes out tomorrow and says, "Fuck you all. I'm staying. Bring it on, you Repug liars. You have a few shaky bullshit stories, well, here are the thousand women I've worked with over the last thirty years to tell you the goddamn truth!"

John Phillips' partner is named Jillian Barberi, though. Leeann works with a guy named Doug McIntyre.

Wasn't Tom Arnold continually promising a tape from The Apprentice was going to be released? He might be as flakey as Roseanne, just with different politics.

What Al Franken did was wrong, but he should not lose his job and have his life ruined. Leann Tweeden didn't need to do this. She was not traumatized. She did not lose a job or a promotion. What Al Franken did to her was being a jerk, but that's it.
Roy Moore on the other hand was stalking and molesting 14-year old girls. Big difference from Al Franken and the women he touched.

Just like liberals not to understand politics. Watch Franken resign and the pedophile happily find himself in the Senate.

Yep, Repubs played the Dems, and Dems stupidly are falling for it. "why don't your guys resign first to set a good example for us". Then of course they are laughing at the stupidity. Makes me rethink being a Dem.
|by Anonymous||reply 21||Last Wednesday at 8:13 PM|
No, Dems aren't falling for anything!
It's sad that alleged progressives have decided that only women groped by Republicans need to be believed. The only person to blame is Franken. Apparently he's "handsy", and now he's fucked!
Get OUT before 2018, so you don't provide the criminal GOP with talking points and false equivalences all year leading up to an election which we need to be a massive wave election!

R22, do you really think Franken not being there is going to keep them from using him as a talking point? They are the biggest hypocrites in the world. They literally tell people they are giving them money while they are taking it out of their pockets.
And, it's not only women that are groped by Repugs that matter. Can you really not look at all these different accusations and read their veracity on your own? If you believe everything, nothing matters.

The biggest groping criminal is in the White House, but r22 would have you believe it all hinges on Franken.

When is the investigation starting for Franken? He asked for one and it's the least he deserves. C'mon let's have these anonymous women speak to investigators and do it right.

No, Dems aren't falling for anything! [real meaning: Of course they are, but I'll cater to the gay liberal egos here and tell them they're smarter than they are, see-hee!]
It's sad [sad--a Trump word]
that alleged progressives [he's trying to divide us with the word "alleged"]
have decided that only women groped by Republicans need to be believed. The only person to blame is Franken. [the ONLY person! Not Trump, with 19 counts of sex abuse against him? Not Moore, an alleged pedophile?]
Apparently he's "handsy", and now he's fucked! ["Apparently"... meaning "Allegedly." And that last word--declarative! Believe what I say, when I throw out a dirty word I must be no-bullshit!]
Get OUT before 2018 [Drop out, Al!]
so you don't provide the criminal GOP with talking points and false equivalences all year [what all liberals call us--"criminal" and that fancy term, which is actually "false equivalencies"]
leading up to an election which we need to be a massive wave election! [Desperate! Liberals are desperate to win!]
Phony as fucking fuck.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune, Minnesota’s largest newspaper, called on Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign following allegations of sexual misconduct and growing calls from his colleagues to step aside.
"The incidents of alleged sexual misconduct have become too damaging for him to continue. Franken has said he will make an announcement on Thursday: It should be that he is resigning," the newspaper wrote in an editorial on Wednesday.
I'd bet money Tweeden is not on the editorial board.
|by Anonymous||reply 28||Last Wednesday at 8:37 PM|
Franken apologized for his behavior. He acknowledged it and seemed honestly remorseful. Why should he resign?

I don't give a shit how many liberal editors on how many newspapers call for it. That's called sanctimony, not reality.

I agree it was a hit job but Tweeden never called for him to stepdown. That came from Democrats.

The accusations against Franken are just weird. Someone wrote an article about how when she took a photo with him she squeezed her waist.
Firstly, Al Franken just needs to stop taking photos with women. But secondly, is squeezing your waist now considered sexual assault?
But Franken has to resign because even though he's been accused of some silly small things like waist squeezing or almost kissing someone (but not doing it) , people only add up the number of accusers and not the substance of what they say.
Sure Franken can quit but democrats better hope the rest in congress are squeaky clean because someone is targeting them now.

If the tit groping photo was a joke that the victim was in on, why didn't Franken say that in the first place? It would have saved him a lot of grief.

I don't think Al is a pervert or even rude. Maybe ridiculously enthusiastic and mistaken? Sometimes a girl is just waiting for a little show of affection. Some guys just don't get the right signals.
