Before the Alabama election, Al Franken made a very sad, heartfelt, even ‘heroic’ speech about how he would be stepping down due to the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct made against him.
And now that Moore has lost in Alabama (dude, concede), Democrats can go back to their old behavior and start protecting their own predators again.
C’mon, we knew it was all an act.

You mean Democrats only pretended to want him to resign so they could rail on Moore and not be called hypocrites?
Gosh, who’da thunk it? (we did!)

From The Hill:
At least four senators, including two Democrats, have reportedly said that Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) should reconsider his resignation.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) told Politico that the deluge of Democrats calling for Franken to resign was “the most hypocritical thing” he has “ever seen done to a human being.”
“What they did to Al was atrocious, the Democrats,” Manchin added. “The most hypocritical thing I’ve ever seen done to a human being — and then have enough guts to sit on the floor, watch him give his speech and go over and hug him? That’s hypocrisy at the highest level I’ve ever seen in my life. Made me sick.”
Manchin, let’s not pretend this wasn’t all planned. Nobody panders as well as the Left.
Now that the Alabama election is over, Franken could drop the pretense of accountability for his misdeeds. It would be a "clever" play. <wink>

Possible. We find it interesting that The Hill didn’t name all four of them.
We saw this happening……Democrats such liars

Gotta admit they are good at it.
Democratic Party: “We have principles. And if you don’t like them, we have other principles.”

They may actually print this on their business cards in 2018.

We couldn’t be more surprised if we woke up tomorrow morning with our heads sewn to the carpet.

What Al did to those women was atrocious.
