Al Franken: I Will Regain Voters’ Trust

Sen. Al Franken was called out for sexual assault two weeks ago by radio host Leanne Tweeden. He then was hit with another claim of sexual misbehavior by another woman the very next day.

Calls for the Democrat senator to step down and resign have been growing like a wart on a toad by the day. But Franken, ever the funny man, told everyone before Thanksgiving that he was not going to resign, but was going to reflect about his actions over the holiday.

Then he was hit with two more – yes, count ’em – two more allegations that resulted in another apology on Turkey Day.

Franken now believes he can win his voters back after a couple of weeks of hell on earth. He’s still refusing to resign, even after he’s spent years calling out Republicans for being women-hating bigots. This slime knows no shame.

Via Circa: “’I feel terribly that I’ve made some women feel badly and for that I’m sorry, and I want to make sure that never happens again,’ he said in a Thursday statement to The Minnesota Star-Tribune. ‘And let me say again to Minnesotans that I’m sorry for putting them through this and I’m committed to regaining their trust.’”

Just listen to this perverted turkey jabber on: “Franken also explained why he had engaged in physical contact with some women in the past, arguing he is a ‘warm person’ who likes to ‘hug people.’

This is why the country is in such a bad place. Our Congress should not house sexual predators, pedophiles, deviants, or physical abusers as we have seen over the past eyars.

Here’s another tip to you: I am not speaking to one political party, I am speaking to everyone. Allowing these men/women to stay in Congress isn’t right. Americans should show they care more about who is elected than protected, which means individuals like Franken and Rep. Conyers need to be relieved of their seats.

What are your feelings about Franken keeping his seat in Congress and hoping his constituents forget his transgressions? SHARE your opinion below in the comment section and don’t forget to add this article to your Facebook/Twitter timeline.

  • Yeah, who does he think he is? Not like he's the "grab some pussy" President or anything. Then he could get away with anything.

    I see that the President wants Judge Roy to come to Washington to teach him some new moves with the little girls.

  • These people like al think they are above the law. As long as unintelligent citizens put vermin like him in office, then the very foundations of this great Nation will continue to shake.

  • Unfortunately, I live in MN. He changed his address JUST in time to run for Senate. He bought, with the help of the DFL, his senate seat. I have NEVER thought him funny in anyway, disgusting certainly. His "humor" shows what he thinks of women. Any person whose skits are based on rape is sick in more ways than one! The only problem with him stepping down is that our Governor Dayton will probably appoint Rep Keith Ellison - Muslim who swears in on the Quoran and is 'a devout Muslim' and is more liberal than Franken by far.

  • If it were not for ballots magically appearing in the trunk of cars and Republican ballots suddenly disappearing, he would never have been elected in the first place.

  • Typical commie. What's happening today all over the World was predicted by old socialist Karl Marx in his Communist Manifesto (~1850s). If old socialist and union thug Saul Alinsky were infected with this type of perversion he would have spelled it out in his Rules for Radicals (1971). So today we have the modern day up grade of commie perversion with old commie Georgie Soros and his UN, EU and US minions and sheeple.
