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.”
