Has Franken not resigned yet?

What's he waiting on?

Come on Nancy, get on this!

She's allegedly pushing Conyers out, why not Franken?

Nancy herself said "Zero tolerance" on this stuff.

Maybe she just meant zero tolerance for Repubs...ya think?

Here's why:

Republicans don't police their own in politics. In fact, sexual predators are routinely applauded. If Democrats in Congress resign over these matters, and Republicans don't, then Democrats are weakened.

Outside of politics, Democrats are VERY quick to oust such people - much more quickly than Republicans.

But Democratic politicians are smart enough to realize that adhering to standards that are routinely ignored by Republicans isn't going to serve their constituents.

In his specific case, yes. However there are almost certainly other Democrat politicians from states that do not have Democrat governors, and Franken's resignation would set a precedent.

Nice try, but given the reluctance of conservative organizations OUTSIDE of politics to oust sexual predators, there's no arguing the point that conservatives are more protective of such people.

Oops,
They are simply parroting the talking points from the MSM like good little sheeple.

Get ready ..... your gonna hear a lot of this Democrats clean up their own an d Republicans don't .....

Even though .... Fraken and Conyers have both stated they will not step down and there is no evidence of Republicans engaging in this Democrat behavior.

See how propaganda works?

Couldn't happen without the sheeple parroting.

EVERYTHING the left says is propaganda.
