Now that the waters have been muddied by Democrats and the media so as to shift attention from Minnesota liberal Al Franken’s shocking sexual abuse of a Los Angeles radio host by bringing up the bogus charges against President Trump made by Hillary surrogates, the senator’s office has issued a statement.
Fish lips Franken will not be resigning from his seat over the controversy, a shining example of the brightly burning dungheap of liberal hypocrisy – Democrats, and especially the former Saturday Night Live comic love to puff up their chests as defenders of women’s rights but judge them by their actions and not their words.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports “Sidelined by scandal, Sen. Al Franken faces questions about ability to do his job”:
Asked Saturday whether Franken would resign, a spokesperson for the senator responded: “No.”
“He is spending time with his family in Washington, D.C., and will be through the Thanksgiving holiday,” the staffer said by text, “and he’s doing a lot of reflecting.”
The woman in the photo, broadcaster Leeann Tweeden, wrote a detailed account of her 2006 USO holiday tour with Franken, the former “Saturday Night Live” comedian and political satirist who at that time was still months away from launching his Minnesota Senate bid. Franken, she said, pressured her into performing a comedy skit with him, then wrote a kiss into the act, then forced a kiss on her backstage in what he called a “rehearsal.”
The senator, who is 66 and has been married to wife Franni Bryson since 1975, put out two public apologies and wrote a personal one to Tweeden, who said she accepted it.
Franken’s allies, and Franken himself, have pitched an alternative to resignation that would confront his behavior without costing him his career — the Senate Ethics Committee.
Franken said he would “gladly cooperate” with a Senate ethics investigation into his behavior. But it’s unclear whether the bipartisan six-member committee, which fields dozens of questions each year about senators’ financial dealings and use of the power and privilege of their office, would look into behavior that predates a senator’s election.
The Senate ethics investigation will be a farce, those scumbags protect their own.
Stuart Smalley will now undergo image rehab which should be done in no time now that the media has his back despite the photographic evidence of him grasping the sleeping Leeann Tweeden’s breasts while leering like a pederast on a playground.
What else can you expect from the Democrats? This is a party which still treats sex fiend and alleged rapist Bill Clinton as an elder statesman and even ran his enabler of a wife as their presidential candidate.
Frankenstein will remain a dark horse for 2020 despite his proclivity for perversity.
