In what can only be described as a silly, self-important speech, former Minnesota Senator Al Franken diminished the sexual harassment allegations against him, referred to himself as a “champion for women,” and vowed to keep fighting politically as an “activist.”
The allegations against Franken by eight women are detailed here.
As an aside, Al Franken should not be a Senator because he hangs out with actual Communist Party USA members and their allies. Al Franken should not be a Senator because he won based on fake votes from felons.
If you actually listen to Franken’s resignation speech, you see that he diminishes the charges against him:
“I think that was the right thing to do. I also think it gave some people the false impression that I was admitting to doing things that, in fact, I haven’t done. Some of the allegations against me are simply not true. Others, I remember very differently.”
…refers to himself as a “Champion for Women.”
“I am proud that, during my time in the Senate, I have used my power to be a champion for women – and that I have earned a reputation as someone who respects the women I work alongside every day. I know there’s been a very different picture of me painted over the last few weeks. But I know who I really am.
…promises to continue his activism, (read, fight President Trump).
“Let me be clear. I may be resigning my seat, but I am not giving up my voice. I will continue to stand up for the things I believe in as a citizen, and as an activist.”
