Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) announced Thursday he plans to resign from office amid numerous allegations that he acted inappropriately and sexually harassed multiple women.
All of the members of Congress elected before men walked on the moon were defeated years ago or had the good sense to retire already. All but John Conyers.
Does Rep. John Conyers’ retirement give the Democratic Party moral high ground in the firestorm of sexual harassment charges? The answer must decidedly be no.
Yes, both sides are guilty of a double standard for sexual misconduct, but the Left’s hypocrisy has been particularly egregious, and has likely allowed the problem to metastasize and fester.
Unlike a private business, Congress is an assemblage of equally free agents who are in the first instance accountable to their voters.
On Wednesday, reporters asked two top Democrats why congressmen accused of sexual assault are not resigning from office, unlike leaders in the private sector.
