Because you knew this was coming. It never stops at just one or two. Remember when I mentioned earlier today about Charlie Rose and his coming avalanche of accusers?
Well, let’s not forget about Senator Stuart Smalley…er… Al Franken.
Yup. Several more have stepped up, so the count is at 4 for Freaky Franken, now.
The reports out Wednesday evening are that two more women have come forward, on the condition of anonymity, for fear of retribution.
Fear of retribution? Is that more of the Democrat cabal circling the wagons?
These women are telling tales of gross encounters of the Franken kind from 2008, when Franken was running for office, and they say their stories are very much like that of Lindsay Menz.
Pro-tip, ladies: Never pose for a photo with Al Franken.
“My story is eerily similar to Lindsay Menz’s story,” the first woman said, referring to a woman who said last week that Franken groped her at the Minnesota State Fair. “He grabbed my buttocks during a photo op.”
”I saw him and asked if we could take a photo together for my mother, and we stood next to each other,” she added. “And down his hand went.”
Seriously… Nobody punched him? Ever?
The second new accuser, however, claims that Franken really ramped up the creep-factor, in her case.
According to her, the encounter with Franken went very much like that of Menz and the other anonymous accuser, with Franken getting a grasp on her tush during a photo-op, but then he suggested they find a bathroom. She assumed he meant for one of those dirty bathroom stall sex romps.
“My immediate reaction was disgust,” the second woman told HuffPost. “But my secondary reaction was disappointment. I was excited to be there and to meet him. And so to have that happen really deflated me. It felt like: ‘Is this really the person who is going to be in a position of power to represent our community?’”
I hope you didn’t vote for him, after that.
Who am I kidding? Unless she voted from the trunk of her car, of course she didn’t vote for him.
Franken responded to the report of his new accusers today by claiming amnesia.
“It’s difficult to respond to anonymous accusers, and I don’t remember those campaign events,” Franken’s statement read.
Because he’s squeezed so many fannies and made so many lewd suggestions to his constituents that he can’t remember them all?
I wonder if Franken will continue to crank out the same, pat apology from last week, every time a couple of new accusers step forward?
Last week he offered:
“The first and most important thing — and if it’s the only thing you care to hear, that’s fine — is: I’m sorry,” he wrote.
“I respect women. I don’t respect men who don’t,” Franken continued. “And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed.”
You should feel ashamed. Unfortunately, your brand of shame only comes after being put on blast, and as such, is it really shame?
The grossest part about all of this is that Democrats are defending this scandalous behavior. Whatever moral high ground they felt they’d gained by Republicans electing a man like Donald Trump, they’ve certainly lost it, now.
