The Washington Examiner – Democrats and liberals in the news media found a sudden nuance when defining “sexual misconduct,” though the concept was conveniently much more clear-cut when a Supreme Court seat was on the line 10 months ago.
The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer published a lengthy article Monday that all but clears disgraced former Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., of the multiple accusations of sexual assault he faced in 2017, which ultimately led to his resignation from the Senate.
Mayer offers a sympathetic ear to Franken, who believes he was wrongly shafted. She gets testimonials from Senate Democrats who regret their initial demand that Franken resign. And she casts doubt on the allegation that started Franken’s pursuit.
