Pious liberals in showbiz and politics have long lectured conservatives on our alleged shortcomings, including sexism. But the new “speak out” culture has revealed that being a famous liberal scold doesn’t mean you don’t also have roaming hands and feet of clay. Now, they seem panicked that rules they championed for everyone else are being turned on them.

Minnesota Sen. Al Franken is the latest liberal to find himself under fire after former model-turned-radio host Leeann Tweeden accused him of sexual harassment during a USO tour in 2006. Tweeden claims Franken forcibly kissed her under the pretext of rehearsing a sketch he wrote. She also released a photo that he left for her, showing him grabbing her breasts and smiling at the camera when she was asleep on the plane.

Franken apologized and tried to pass the incident off as part of the irreverent “Saturday Night Live” comedy he did before he entered politics. Tweeden accepted his apology.

But Franken’s Democratic Senate colleagues aren’t being so forgiving. They lionized Ted Kennedy and just last year wanted to send Bill Clinton (to whom they gave a standing ovation after his failed impeachment vote) back to the White House. But now, in the midst of the MeToo wave, they publicly have to project zero tolerance for sexual harassers. They rejected Franken’s claim that the photo was clearly meant to be funny, said that comedy was no excuse, and are demanding an investigation by the Ethics Committee.

If there is such an investigation, it could get messy. Already, there’s a second allegation from another woman. Franken’s right, we all know that before he went into politics, he did a lot of things that he claimed were comedy but weren’t funny. But if this claim is true, his background as an unfunny comedian is really no excuse.

    Hollywood sickens me with their "do as I say, not as I do" views and actions. That said, I fully believe they (and the DNC) are throwing a few of their folks under the bus to accomplish their ultimate goal of removing Trump. The narrative is already moving in that direction.

    Liberalism is more than a mental disorder, it is evil. It always sides with the devil through history.
    Keep up the good work.
    My father in law lives in Arkansas and has met and spoke to you many times. He says you are a Good man.
    And my wife and I have always voted for you.

    As we all know the Democrats are hypocrites and that their core values are baby murder and sodomy. With these kinds of values it is no wonder they treat like heroes the rapist Bill Clinton, rapist Kennedys, Franken who molests women and on and on and on. The Democrats are true to their core values which is pure evil. Predictably no Democrat will dare break rank with their comrades in the Democrat Party because they know that if they do break rank, they will be treated as an Infidel. And just like how their Islamic friends treats infidels, any Democrat infidel will be similarly treated. Donna Brazile is in fear of being an infidel and that she may end up just like Seth Rich.

    The comments he made about rape in 1995 and the later Playboy article were brought up during his 2008 campaign, so he's already survived some of this heat before. Unless the Senate actually does something about him, will any of the new material matter? He won't be up for reelection until 2020 and Minnesota voters have shown themselves to be a majority of idiots. Maybe all of these allegations are being presented to make sexual harassment seem like the new norm. That won't happen quickly, but it could be an end goal.

    I have difficulty reading your comments as I thought I was reading about Judge Moore, but, then, it was about Frankin, as they seemed to run together. However, the two should never be intertwined since the two men live entirely in two separate universes. It is rely hard for ne to believe the allegations against the judge, whereas, the attitude of abuse by Al Frankin is very obvious.

    I think it is a scam when the accusations only come forward during an election. There could be truth to some of the accusations but the timing makes it suspicious.
    I do think McConnell should not be telling Moore to get out so McConnell can put in Sessions who is not leaving his current position. McConnell can not dictate to states or Americans what to do. We each have a right to our choice. I do not trust him any more.

    Interesting that they call for Judge Moore to resign from running for possible problems from about 39 years ago, but will just refer the demorat to an ethics committee. This committee has never done anything to anyone they investigate. I read about President Johnson telling a staffer to spread a rumor claiming one of his opponents had sex with a donkey. He said, just by having to defend against this would hurt the opponents chances of beating him in the race. I also remember Harry Reid telling the press, Mitt Romney had not paid taxes when he was running for president, which was a lie. Harry then said ,"it worked". Demorats have lost their moral direction. Keep praying for our nation. WE cannot let dirty tricks beat conservatives. Sexual harassment is the new direction, the dividers (demorats and Rinos) are pushing as racism claims have lost power
