Franken Accuser: His Statement 'Wasn't an Apology' - 'It Was Very Defiant'

Franken Accuser: His Statement 'Wasn't an Apology' - 'It Was Very Defiant'

I'd told myself I was the only one.

When Cupp appeared to talk about the speech with Brooke Baldwin, she joined the fray by slamming the outgoing senator for not showing more contrition for his inappropriate behavior. "After experiencing many vile and partisan personal attacks on my credibility since I went public, I don't blame these women one bit". "I said, 'No, I don't know that I'll ever feel good about it'".

"I am announcing that in the coming weeks I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate", Franken said in an emotional address on the Senate floor, where he said some of the allegations against him weren't true.

Dupuy said, "I thought that he said to listen to women, and then he talked about himself". Asked during a press appearance whether he had a response to Franken's speech, he replied, "I didn't hear it".

Considering this is a co-op only game, that makes ideal sense, and it's great that he was able to convince EA to get on board. You can find the newest trailer for A Way Out at the bottom of the page.

"I'm disappointed with my friend Leeann Tweedon (sic)", Arnold wrote on Twitter, alleging her partner at radio station KABC, John Phillips, and political lobbyist Roger Stone "coached her for weeks to bring Al Franken down..."

If selected, Smith would be the 22nd woman now in the Senate, a new record for Capitol Hill and the first female appointment to come in the wake of sexual harassment scandals rocking Washington this year. "I remember that rehearsal differently, but what's important is that [sic] the impact it had on you and you felt violated by my actions, and for that I apologize", it read in part. She said she feels badly that he is resigning: "I feel sad that he has to leave a job he's passionate about". "It's become clear that I can't both pursue the Ethics Committee process and at the same time remain an effective senator for [the people of Minnesota]".

An anonymous Democratic congressional aide told Politico that Franken tried to forcibly kiss her after a 2006 radio show taping.

Tweeden, a mother of two, said she didn't call for Franken's resignation when she came forward with her allegations, but that his announcement today made her feel "some sort of validation". Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii; Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.; Maggie Hassan, D-N.H.; Patty Murray, D-Wash.; and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., called for Franken to resign. "Just that he would continue to dismiss and put the allegations down", she said.
