    They're not even bothering to hide it anymore, are they?

    Jesus Christ. At this point, I'm starting to wonder if there's anyone famous anywhere who won't be accused of sexual assault eventually.

    Per the photo he's hoverhanding over kevlar. What a joke. It's tasteless in the extreme, but I'm not exactly outraged at this one. Once upon a time I might have said it was conduct unbecoming a Senator, but those standards mean nothing in a world of pussy grabbing and Roy Moore's imminent election.

    Kevlar is just very thick, tough clothing though. Doesn't matter if you're naked or wearing 15 layers, a grope is a grope. Surely the democrats have some decent candidates for future leadership of the party who aren't stupid enough to grope someone on camera, and Franken can show some moral leadership by resigning and apologising?

    You can see the shadows from his hands hovering, he's not actually touching her.

    Resignation is probably a worst case scenario for Franken - at best he's going to come out entirely too damaged for any further advancement though. I think that Dem presidential primary voters are a lot less forgiving of scandal than Roy Moore voters in ruby-red Alabama. Remind yourself that purity testing is the Left's favourite pastime, and this is very much a current issue.

    For completeness and clarity, were I eligible to vote for Franken at some point in the future, I would be combing through his words and actions with a very fine comb.

    No way in hell is Franken even considering resigning over this. This is stupid but it's not that stupid. He'll take his lumps for sure, but it's minor - especially compared to the abuses of Spacey, Weinstein, Moore, Trump, etc. That said, there've been multiple calls for ethics investigations into this by the Senate. So far I'm seeing Schumer, McConnell, McCaskill, and Franken himself all calling for it. So there'll obviously be one and I doubt it'll expel Franken. Will hurt his presidential chances, sure, but he's not going anywhere.

    And yeah, that's clear hoverhand on the left, but not clear on the right because of the camera angle. Either way he takes flak for it, really.

    Oh they're open about it too.
    It's less Franken hoverhanding a boob over battle rattle without ceramics, and more the fact that it's poor taste in any other context, and fucking gross when you tongued their uvula against their will, and they're not an active participant in your japes.

    Yeah, even if you can use amateur photo analysis to argue that he's not technically groping her in that picture, what he's doing is still not okay at all, and makes him look guilty as hell when it comes to the rest of the story. If he's willing to be photographed doing this, how much worse is he behind closed doors with no witnesses.

    There's also the possibility that, similar to the other cases that've come out, this will be just the first of many women to come forward.

    Have you seen the state of Dems in Congress? Menendez is going through what is one of the most obvious cases of corruption in the last years (only reason he wasn't condemned was because SCOTUS made corruption charges so so specific you can get away with almost anything if you're retarded) and he didn't resign, nor are the Democratic leadership throwing stones at him.

    This is nothing. This is Franken getting slapped in the wrist and maybe killing any bigger plans of his. IF it stays on the spotlight.

    I love how the "defenders of states rights" are basically trying to starve our cities and states out of their ability to increase local taxes or even have them at any higher level.
