    Jordan has not been accused of "sex-related misconduct", Franken was. Surely ypu can see the difference here, if you were paying attention.

    he's accused of misconduct related to sexual activity he should have prevented. I don't see the difference. You defend your guys, no matter what, and you attack the other side...no matter what.

    I see the difference between Jordan's conduct and Franken's, but it doesn't make a difference to the hypocrisy I'm pointing out. Because there have been others.....

    Thank goodness for you that Denny Hastert retired before his shame was revealed. With Mark Foley you weren't so lucky. Republicans ran to his defense in early days too. Blake Farhenthold hung on for months.

    It's really a matter of personal shame with you guys. As long as he can stand up to the cameras and deny stuff, you're good. People who feel shame can't do that, and you won't if he doesn't.

    What hypocrisy? There were pics of Franken, and he had to admit.his secual assaults.

    There is no evidence of wrongdoing by Jordan.

    I know, I know. But look at his denials. They aren't exactly unequivocal or consistent. And many of his accusers are his friends; one gave money to Jordan's first campaign.

    A consistent pattern of ignoring what everyone else (at least) was aware of when he was in a position of authority and could have stopped it.
