Mitch McConnell recently said that based merely on uncorroborated allegations of sexual abuse, he would not allow Roy Moore to take a seat in the Senate if the citizens of Alabama elected him to that office.
But when there is photographic evidence and even an admission of culpability in the Al Franken abuse case, Mitch calls for an ethics investigation, which is a process that goes on for years and ends up as a cover-up for sitting Senate members, and there is never any punishment for anything the Senator may have done that was improper or illegal. There are many cases of sexual misconduct guilty verdicts judged against sitting Senators every year and they are always settled quietly, and the victim is paid off and silenced by the government, at tax-payer expense. And the offending Senators remain in office with full benefits and status.
I don’t understand the double standard that is always tilted against Republicans. It’s apparent that Roy Moore, himself a Republican, is a political opponent of Mitch McConnell’s, and it seems that Al Franken, a rabid leftist, is a political ally of McConnell’s. Talk about your odd bed-fellows in politics and this is a classic example of political oddness.
With the admission and the photograph to use as evidence against Franken, he should be drummed out of the Senate immediately instead of wasting time and money with a worthless ethics investigation that will assuredly end with him firmly seated in the Senate, and firmly opposed to any and all of President Trump’s initiatives. And if the people of Alabama elect Roy Moore, his entrance to the United States Senate should not be impeded.
