A THIRD WOMAN has "come forward" claiming that Al Franken groped her. Sen. Al Franken groped Arianna Huffington in 2000 photo shoot-NY Post
The so called victim:
"Al and I did a comedic sketch for Bill Maherís Politically Incorrect called Strange Bedfellows, in which the whole point, as the name makes clear, was that we were doing political commentary from bed," Huffington told the Post. "This shoot was looking back at the sketch, and we were obviously hamming it up for comedic effect."
"Iíve been great friends with Al and his wife Franni for over 20 years and there has never been anything remotely inappropriate in our interactions," she said.
The photographer has DECLINED to COMMENT, and yet...
An "unnamed source" described the encounter:
"Franken was clowning around, but it really isnít funny," said a source from the shoot. "Thatís his tactic, pretend like itís all a big joke. Arianna was pushing his hands away. He was groping her. There was some fun attached to it, but she wasnít enjoying it. She definitely told him to stop and pushed him away ... "
Now you TELL ME, how DESPERATE are the Republicans when they are pushing "unnamed sources" to be "MORE OFFENDED THAN THE VICTIM" and what does that tell us?
If you're more offended than the victim, or if you're offended even when there IS NO victim, or the "victim" flatly states that they are not a victim and they are NOT offended, then it becomes a statement ABOUT YOU and not the victim at all.
So here we are folks, three so called victims, NONE of them are willing to demand his resignation, and one even insists she is NOT a victim at all.
This ruse, this setup, is getting mighty thin, and thinner by the second.
I say let the Republicans skate with this and keep [censored] that chicken till they choke on it.
At this point, Al Franken has already won but I still want that investigation, so he can jam the silver stake right into the chest of the Republican Party on live television.
At this point, I'm also saying that Republicans are MOCKING every woman who actually HAS been sexually harassed.
My fellow Democrats who jumped up and called for Franken to step down now look like complete imbeciles, and they deserve to.
Three claims, NO call from the victims for him to resign, and ONE victim is publicly insisting she wasn't even a victim at all, ever, and that Franken's wife was in on the joke.
So yes, to all my liberal friends who were ready to throw Franken under the bus, you now look like IDIOTS, and you should.
The Republicans are openly MOCKING every woman who has actually BEEN assaulted, and you're helping them.
Learn from this, please....they're just getting STARTED.
If we can't view things objectively, we will lose it all, and most of the damage will be self inflicted.
