Al Franken Victim Leeann Tweeden Responds to Democrat's Resignation

Al Franken Victim Leeann Tweeden Responds to Democrat's Resignation

But Franken did not take that chance.

See more reactions below.

"Actually, Franken said he couldn't focus on his job while under investigation".

In an article in the Atlantic Wednesday, Dupuy detailed her account of Franken groping her when the two were at an inauguration party for former President Barack Obama in 2009. What do you think of it?

Milito responded that she could not speak to forced employment contracts because she did not now how widespread they are among the small businesses represented by NFIB. "It's like if a cop asked you, 'If I search your vehicle am I going to find weed?' and you're like, 'I certainly hope not, but also do you have any Doritos?'"

Indian Government Extends Mandatory Aadhaar Linking for PAN Until March 31, 2018
Moreover, the extension of linking Aadhaar to one's bank account will be for only those who do not yet possess an Aadhaar card . The deadline for linking PAN with Aadhaar previously was July 31 but was extended to August 31 and later to December 31, 2017.

"I'm saying that he calls himself a champion of women, but he does these things that says to the women, 'you have no ownership over your own body.' That 'your comfort does not matter.' That 'I can touch you and I can do whatever I want to you and it doesn't matter, '" she said. "Do you think those clauses - that mandate secrecy and prevent victims from speaking out - in your view, is that a problem?" She said she felt sorry Franken had to resign. Franken told her it was his "right as an entertainer".

Franken confirmed the suspicions of the political and media worlds today when he announced that he would step aside in light of the various sexual misconduct allegations against him.

During the hearing, he said the tort reform measures being discussed weren't needed.

"They don't help weed out frivolous claims early on". This is about telling the truth, and not letting fear silence us. Tweedan was expecting only to introduce the acts, but Franken had written a part for Tweedan in one of his skits. Or the guy who brings Cranium to an orgy: "wrong party". Surely the speech announcing his resignation was a chance for him to show contrition before the Senate, the country, and, perhaps most importantly, the women who had risked public shaming to report their experiences with him.

After returning home, she discovered a clause in her KBR contract banned her from taking her case to court, instead forcing her into an arbitration process that would be run by KBR itself. As Franken resigned, Jimmy Fallon noted, "Other senators said he sounded heartfelt, contrite, and dignified-and there's no place for someone like that in the United States Senate". "We need to draw a line in the sand and say none of it is OK, none of it is acceptable, and we, as elected leaders, should absolutely be held to a higher standard". Her story inspired this change and it is just the beginning. "I shouldn't have done them.' Or, you know, fully renounce them, because he hasn't fully renounced them".
