WASHINGTON – In the wake of photographic proof that Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., has brazenly harassed women for decades, one of Franken’s targets joined former President Bill Clinton’s accusers Wednesday to demand justice.
Franken disappeared for days after there were claims he groped and demeaned women.
Then he emerged Sunday, explaining that he has not considered resigning amid the slew of sexual harassment allegations but would cooperate with a Senate investigation into his conduct.
“I’ve let a lot of people down and I’m hoping I can make it up to them and gradually regain their trust,” said Franken, breaking an eight-day silence in a phone call with Minnesota Public Radio.
“The Ethics Committee is looking into all of this, and I will cooperate fully with it,” said Franken,
