COWARD: Bernie Sanders Tries To Dodge Question About Whether Al Franken Should Step Down (VIDEO)

Bernie Sanders was asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper this weekend if Al Franken should step down. Bernie tried to filibuster his way out of answering so Tapper asked him a second time. Then he gave a lame answer.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Sanders Suggests Franken Should Not Step Down: ‘Al Is a Very Popular Senator’

CNN host Jake Tapper addressed the scandal gripping Franken on “State Of The Union.”

A Los Angeles-based radio anchor wrote Franken aggressively kissed her without consent during a USO tour in 2006, and she also published a photo of Franken apparently groping her breasts while she slept. Franken apologized, and he said he would cooperate with an ethics investigation.

Sanders, who caucuses with the Democrats, issued a statement agreeing Franken should be investigated and called any sexual harassment “completely unacceptable.”

“Do you think Al Franken should resign?” Tapper asked.

“I think that’s a decision for Al Franken and the people of the state of Minnesota,” Sanders said. “My understanding is that Al is a very popular senator. People in Minnesota think that he is doing a good job, and his political future will rest with the people of Minnesota.”
