Sally Kohn’s going for broke.
The growing allegations against Democrat Senator Al Franken are proving too much for the liberal elite to defend. In a blistering tweet launched Wednesday morning, Kohn called for Franken “to go.”
The writer and political pundit also demanded that Democrats show “they strongly and consistently stand for women’s rights.”
Time for Al Franken to go.
Wrong is wrong. And the Democrats need to show they strongly AND CONSISTENTLY stand for women’s rights.

Really? Kohn’s message is telling given the suspicious timing.
Last week, numerous liberals suddenly had a change of heart when it came to decades-old sexual assault allegations against former President Bill Clinton. For years, leftists lectured from their soap boxes about feminism while giving their biggest and most adored political ally an essential free pass.

Now that Hillary Clinton lost her chance to become president (twice!) and sexual misconduct charges have been brought against an outsider Republican senate candidate Roy Moore, some in the liberal media have finally gotten serious about sexual harassment from their own.
But, Kohn’s calling for Franken’s removal enraged many of her fans, and the deep political divide was all too apparent in the responses:

News flash: they don’t stand for women’s rights.

How are you going to put Franken in the same category as people accused of rape, abuse and groping women and minors? That doesn’t make sense because an act on a sketch the woman agreed on…. she kiss the same way another guy in the same act min later… what a joke, really.

Bull hocky! You are trying & convicting him on the basis of self contradictory accusations & obvious targetting!!!!!

Kind of like how many conservatives have aruged the left has done with Moore? Could it be the reason for Kohn’s tweet and the sudden condemnation of Bill Clinton by Hillary voters and the MSM?
Perhaps, but there were some who saw Kohn’s tweet as simply a refreshing moment of common sense.
I am so tired of these assholes (excuse my language). They all come out to faux apologize or to the defensive only when the truth is exposed and I am sorry to say but @sallykohn is right… Al Franken has to go just like the others… These are repeat offenders.

Well Sally, that’s twice we have agreed on an issue. No man, whether Democrat or Republican should be allowed to hold office with proven sexual misconduct.

Ironically, conservative Fox News host Laura Ingraham took a very different position from Kohn Wednesday night. Ingraham also called for “consistency” but said it should be up to the voters in Alabama and Minnesota to decide if they want to elect or reelect Moore and Franken.
Kohn’s reaction also flies in the face of liberals Arianna Huffington and Joy Behar, who have both been photographed being groped by Franken. It’s a revelation the two liberal feminists have treated as a joke.
But, no one is laughing now.
