It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from the senator. It looks as if he’s got his strategy fully developed now.

Has anyone asked Nancy Pelosi if she considers Franken an “icon”? Because if she does, it’s totally cool for him to keep doing his thing.
But not THAT ashamed apparently. https://t.co/MET0RtsQNE

“I’m embarrassed and ashamed. But not enough to actually take responsibility for my actions and give up my powerful political job.” https://t.co/90Kzwnbuoj

"But I'm not giving up all this power." There I finished his thought for you. https://t.co/5Oo7fSEykI

"Ashamed by groping allegations".
The only reason he should be ashamed is if he is guilty of said allegations. His confession of being ashamed speaks volumes. https://t.co/vxWYnduKbj

Democrats make and abide by their own rules. They also change them whenever convenient and necessary.
