SNL pulled a Lena Dunham with allegations against Al Franken
It’s a shame Al Franken has to go, Minnesota Jews say.
Coleman lost to Franken by 312 votes in 2008, and hasn’t ruled out running to get his seat back.
“How can a nice Jewish boy do that stuff? It reflects poorly on us. That’s not the Judaism I was raised with.”
“I know in my heart that nothing I’ve done as a senator - nothing - has brought dishonor on this institution,” Franken said.
“No final decision has been made and the Senator is still talking with his family.”
“Sen. Franken has said that he will be making an announcement about his political future tomorrow. The right thing is for him to resign.”
“This moment of reckoning about our friends and colleagues who have been accused of sexual misconduct is necessary, and it is painful.”
“He said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.’”
The blog Jezebel also reported Thursday that Fraken tried to give “a wet, open-mouthed kiss” to a woman in New England
