His election was questionable and we are better off for his absence.

Quote:
Calling it ďthe worst day of his political life,Ē Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken said Thursday he will resign from the U.S. Senate following a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against him that ranged from groping to forcibly trying to kiss women.

Ok, so the dnc decided he has become a liability and cut him loose. Tomorrow the MN governer will send out a fresh standard-issue libtard to place all the exact same votes, take all the exact same positions, and parrot the exact same talking points. So how is it significant?

The new sexual abuse social justice movement is like a big caliber squib round and the dems are looking down the barrel wondering what happened.

Don't pretend it'll only affect dems. Look for the repubs to start getting outed at a time when it's most politically useful, aka third quarter 2018.

The Alabama senate race will be a good bellwether for that theory. The good news is we won't have to wait but a few days to know.

I was sort of hoping that Franken would stay. His replacement may be Kieth Ellison, a black muslim that will be even more damaging to the country than Franken.

I wonder if they'll learn to wait a little longer on the next attempt...

If you start kicking out all the guys that did something stupid there will be no one left.
