He must feel very disheartened. Hope he doesn't kill himself.

He said he is being accused of something he didn't do; the real sexual criminal is in the White House and another is running for Senate with the support of the GOP.

Sounds to me like the Dems know the Russia story isn't going to stick and will now use this as a reason to oust Trump.

Honestly all the crazy stuff he did was when he was a comedian. What did they expect? I am no fan, but he is getting lynched by his own party.

Al should know never to cry on tv. I guess this is no longer the decade of Al Franken.

I just listened to Rush say he doesn't really believe Franken actually redigned his seat, but more questioned the honesty of his accusers and defended himself. We'll see.

Gosh I sure hope you're right and the communist party tries that next. It was fun watching the hildabeast hide her rapist hubby during the campaign...it'll be great seeing the hypocrites go after Trump for alleged "sex offenses" while Hillary is still wandering around manufacturing excuses for her loss.

You'd think he thought of himself as Ghandi. He took no responsibility, basically called the accusers liars, tried to slam Trump & Moore, he's a "champion" for women........
If he's innocent why doesn't he put up a fight? I guess picture evidence "trumps" that.
As for the Trump/Moore slam, no evidence in either.
Son of Gloin is correct, franken said he will be resigning, hasn't officially yet as I know.

I heard his statement and Al said "I plan on resigning in the coming weeks".

I'm guessing there will be more to this soap opera.


Either way the DNC is telling Al to fall on his sword so they can go after Moore when he gets elected and eventually Trump. Everything is done for a political advantage.

Now he needs to hang himself. It's for the children!
Why should he hang himself when he's got you and your special rope to do it for him? C'mon, you know how much you would enjoy it.

I see him waiting it out, and refusing to resign if Moore is sworn in.

This is nothing more than theatrics/extortion on the part of the Dems.

Agree. Why else would he say he's going to take a few weeks. You mean like...after the results of the special election in Alabama?

Plus I believe franken-schmuck is only about halfway through his current term. ZOMG the US Senate is a cesspool...the Minnesota legislature should be able to simply recall Al...like a defective Ford. Gee thanks 17th non-Amendment.

Edit: okay I admit the phrase "defective Ford" is redundant.

How long has "Pervert Al" been in office ?
Federal Politicians qualify for at least a partial pension after being in office 5 years.

Maybe that is why he is dragging his SH!T out.

Answering my Own Question: Looks like around $45K + per year. He is over 65 and served over 9 years. I bet if he stays in until after the first of the years he gets additional credit for time in office which will increase his pension

History has taught us that this ideology cannot be reasoned with and its believers cannot be saved. Unless and until enough of us realize that we'll continue to see nitwits like this get into power. There needs to be a purge!

Unless you were talking about Gerald...
Defective Ford:

LBJ once said of Gerald Ford " He's a nice fellow but he spent too much time playing football without a helmet".


"FUMBLE"!!!!

Getting back on topic...

I hope Trump manages to defund PBS and NPR before some deep state apparatchik gives that unfunny ex-comedienne a show on the network at taxpayer expense. Mark my words, you know they will.
