The New York Times published an op-ed recently that called on Sen. Al Franken to resign. Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe doesn’t believe this is the instance where “zero tolerance” should be applied:
This Michelle Goldberg piece refutes itself. @alfranken did something terribly wrong but has committed to make amends & shdn’t be forced out of the Senate just to teach a zero tolerance lesson. Sacrificing people to a cause teaches its own terrible lesson. https://t.co/xpWdGruYux

Double standard spotters had a field day:
So the "zero tolerance" doctrine that has foisted upon us is now null and void. https://t.co/eT7kV2Lj2R

So…..zero-tolerance policies are not effective? Does this apply globally or only to Franken? https://t.co/TP6U9romXa

Translation: Al Franken is a Democrat and therefore, he’s forgiven. https://t.co/ELuhZplXy8

Liberal hypocrisy! In other words Al Franken is a Democrat and is forgiven. https://t.co/2u0H1UIU1R

In other words, Tribe might have taken a different position if Franken had an “R” after his name.
