Democrats are plagued by allegations of sexual misconduct.
The party of Bill Clinton is living down to its reputation.
But Elizabeth Warren was asked one question that had her running for her political life.
Warren appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert was lobbed the softball question of if embattled Democrat Senator Al Frnaken should resign after he was accused of sexual assaulting anchor Leeann Tweeden on a USO Tour in 2006.
A photograph accompanied her allegations that showed Franken groping her breasts while she slept.
Warren dodged the question in a shameful display of cowardice.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Warren was asked about the allegations during a Monday night appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” and while she said she was “disappointed” in Franken, she did not call for his resignation.
“So look, I was extremely disappointed about all of this,” the senator from Massachusetts said. “These allegations are serious and women have a right to be heard and to be listened to on this.”
“Al is going to be subjected to a hearing in the United States Senate…we have had for a long time now in the Senate, long before I got there, a bipartisan ethics committee that meets on a regular basis and he’s going to go in and answer,” Warren asserted.
Franken has been accused of forcibly kissing and groping women. TV anchor Leeann Tweeden released a photo that showed Franken grabbing her breasts while she was sleeping during a USO tour in 2006.”
Democrats have closed ranks around Franken much in the same way they circled the wagons around Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
Some feminists even defended Franken because he votes right on abortion.
By offering nothing more than silence, Warren was condoning the allegations against Franken.
And while Democrats tried to play “whataboutism” and raise the claims of sexual misconduct women made against Trump in the 2016 election, that ploy falls apart for two reasons.
First, Trump denied the allegations.
Second, there is photographic evidence of Franken’s misconduct.
Warren wants to run for President, but she is in a bind between party loyalty and the Democratic base which is energized on this issue and wants to see it weaponized against Trump and other Republicans.
