Sexual harassment expert weighs in on Al Franken

Hillary blasts Trump over sexual misconduct allegations

He seems to think that the alleged revelation that Franken forcibly kissed and groped TV host and morning news anchor Leeann Tweeden somehow lets him off the hook for his own behavior, as though there isn't room for multiple sexual predators in our fair country.

Reacting to Trump's attacks on Franken, Jack Holmes explains at Esquire how "The Term "Hypocrisy" Doesn't Even Do It Justice". Al Franken of Minnesota on Twitter Thursday night.

You wrote the scene that would include you kissing me and then relentlessly badgered me into "rehearsing" the kiss with you backstage when we were alone.

He then asked, "Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?"

"The Al Frankenstein picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words", Trump tweeted, adding in a second tweet that Franken had last week been "lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women".

Ann Wedgeworth , known for her role as Lana Shields in ABC's " Three's Company ", died Thursday in NY after a long illness. The " Three's Company " star died in New Yor after a long illness, the Hollywood Reporter and Variety reported.

The spotlight on Franken led to calls for his resignation, many of whom have called for Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to drop out of the race over molestation and sexual assault allegations, saying that the Democrat should be held accountable in the same way. He was caught bragging in a 2005 Access Hollywood video about kissing women and grabbing them "by the p-sy".

In recent days, several women have accused Mr. Moore of having assaulted them or pursued them romantically when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s. "Of course, the real reason Trump might normally steer clear of discussions of sexual misconduct is that he has been accused of it himself by more than a dozen women, on the record".

Moore has dismissing calls from GOP leaders to end his Senate campaign after The Washington Post reported allegations that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.

"The president believes that these allegations are very troubling and should be taken seriously, and he thinks that the people of Alabama should make the decision on who their next senator should be", Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said earlier Thursday.

Tweeden said she accepted Franken's apology. "I respect women. I don't respect men who don't", he said in a statement. "Trump has never been charged with a sexual-misconduct crime, and has adamantly denied each claim listed below".
