Al Franken - Not Funny

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY NOVEMBER 17, 2017

         THE LATEST – AND PROBABLY NOT THE LAST – CASE OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT HAS BEEN DIRECTED AT DEMOCRATIC SENATOR AL FRANKEN BY A WOMAN WHO CLAIMS HE KISSED AND GROPED HER DURING A USO TOUR TO ENTERTAIN AMERICAN TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN IN DECEMBER, 2006.

         LEEANN TWEEDEN IS NOW AN ANCHOR FOR THE KABC RADIO MORNING SHOW IN LOS ANGELES. SHE HAS POSTED A DETAILED ACCOUNT OF THE INCIDENTS, ALONG WITH A PICTURE OF FRANKEN GRABBING HER BREASTS WHILE SHE SLEPT ON THE PLANE BRINGING THE GROUP HOME. YOU CAN READ THE ACCOUNT FOR YOURSELF IF YOU CAN FIND IT ANYWHERE ELSE BUT THE KABC WEB PAGE BECAUSE I’M BETTING THE MAJOR MEDIA WILL NOT GIVE IT A FRACTION, OR ANY COVERAGE, COMPARABLE TO WHAT THEY ARE GIVING THE ROY MOORE STORY. THEN THERE IS SENATOR ROBERT MENENDEZ OF NEW JERSEY, ANOTHER DEMOCRAT, WHO HAS BEEN ACCUSED OF VISITING UNDERAGE PROSTITUTES IN THE DOMINCAN REPUBLICAN AND IS ON TRIAL FOR CORRUPTION IN OFFICE. THE NEWS MEDIA HAVE IGNORED THAT TRIAL AND THOSE CHARGES.

         AS A FRIEND OF MINE SAYS, “IT’S GOOD TO BE A DEMOCRAT.” I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
