(AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File) Al Franken resigned from the U.S. Senate in disgrace back in 2018 after being accused by radio news anchor Leeann Tweeden of kissing and groping her backstage at a USO show in 2006 . A photo of Franken groping Tweeden while she was asleep quickly spread like wildfire, prompting many in his own party to call for his resignation.
According to a recent interview with a Massachusetts newspaper regarding a comedy tour starting on Saturday, Franken is considering a political comeback.
“I’m keeping my options open,” Franken said when asked about whether he might ever run for office again. “Right now my focus is on doing this [tour] and doing other stuff that is more politically blatant.”
Franken appeared to regret his resignation and cited pressure from his Democrat colleagues for the decision.
“Well, I wanted due process, but I had 36 colleagues and a majority leader who wouldn’t give it to me, so it was impossible. But you do have some regrets. It was a very weird, tough situation at that moment,” Franken explained. “I love the Senate. I love the work that I did.”
Franken also noted that several Democrats who called for his resignation have since apologized to him.
While that may be true, is it really possible for Franken to redeem himself? At least nine women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against him —clearly, the incident with Tweeden wasn’t a single lapse in judgment. In the wake of Andrew Cuomo resigning in disgrace over multiple accusations of sexual harassment and misconduct, it seems unlikely that Franken could successfully wage a comeback. However, Joe Biden had multiple accusations against him when he won his party’s nomination. So I guess anything’s possible.
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
