Dems seek moral high ground in fight over sexual harassment.
[UPDATED: Senator Franken announces his resignation in the coming weeks]
We’ll know soon if Al Franken follows the growing number of Democrats calling for his resignation.
To contrast themselves from the GOP who still support Roy More and Rep. Blake Farenthold, Democrats are drawing a line in the sand – saying none of this behavior is acceptable. I agree.
I find it, however, most unfortunate that Senator Franken looks to be the sacrificial lamb of this policy. It’s not that, at this point, he shouldn’t go.
But, he should not do so with the false correlation that his “entitled” behavioral missteps are in anyway equivalent to settling an up too recently sexual harassment case with $84K of taxpayer money or sexual predation of minors.
The punishment should always fit the crime, not the party.
Will he resign today? Watch this blog.

Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Texas, says “I want to be clear that I didn’t do anything wrong, but I will pay back the $84,000 sexual harassment settlement.” Ummm, Sure Jan.
