|Al Franken falls.|
Republicans continue to embrace Roy Moore, a candidate who is accused of sexually abusing nine women when they were underage girls.
Trump has thrown his support to him. He also attacked the Democrats for allowing sexual harassment and abuse to run rampant in their party.
Mind you, Trump has 17 accusers. Some of his allies have allegations.
His favorite network Fox News has multiple accusers. The National Enquirer's top editor has allegations.
The issues are straining the Republican Party. The party is really hoping to get Moore seated so he could be the vote to help them pass tax reform.
The Democrats are trying to clean house. They are willing to oust their own.
Tonight there's word that one could be ousted.
There are eight accusers and an embattled Democratic senator is out of allies and may soon be out of a job.
Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has lost the trust of the Democrats. Most members of the Democrats in the Senate are calling for Franken to resign.
|No friends left. Democrats and Republicans want Franken out.|
Progressive agitator Tina Dupuy came forward with allegations that Franken groped her during a party at Media Matters for America.
Others were former staffers, constituents, his radio producer, a military officer and talk radio host.
Now the pressure is on.
Minority Leaders, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have formally denounced Franken. They want him gone.
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) is saying that Franken is expected to resign.
Franken was a comedian, screenwriter, actor and talk radio agitator. He won the seat in a bitterly fought election. He beat Republican Norm Coleman in a razor thin recount. He won reelection in 2014. He is up for reelection in 2020.
On Thursday, the presser. If he steps down, Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton will appoint his lieutenant governor Tina Smith to finish out his term.
Ironic, Franken and Bill O'Reilly were once the loudest voices in the room.
Now O'Reilly is off television and Franken may soon join him.
