Al Franken Victim Leeann Tweeden Responds to Democrat's Resignation

Franken resignation the right thing to do

The responsibility to replace the Minnesota Democrat would fall to Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton.

"I expected for him to come and share the truth, share what he had experienced, you know, give us some sort of resolve to the situation".

He says some charges against him are untrue and that he remembers other differently than his accusers do. "But he's trying to shift the blame and the attention from himself and say, 'Well, what they did maybe in comparison (to) what I did isn't so bad'".

"You can't be a champion of women and then turn around and assault us".

Franken's resignation offers opportunities and setbacks to either party, depending who you ask.

In remarks that lasted 11 minutes, he said that, thanks to his family, "I'm going to be just fine".

She added, "I am sad that he took that time to still deny and say that some of this stuff wasn't true".

"When I spoke out about how Al Franken forcibly kissed me backstage during a USO tour and groped me while I was asleep on the plane ride home, I never called for his resignation", she said.

"That resignation speech was so self serving, it was 'I I I, me me me". "And that I have earned a reputation as someone who respects the women I work alongside every day. There was no apology".

Lil Peep died from powerful drug overdose
Since his passing, Lil Peep has received an outpouring of love from other rappers including Lil Pump, Juicy J and more. The death was deemed accidental, according to the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner.

He could be a big get for Republicans looking to flip Franken's seat to red.

The meeting will still take place, but apparently not with Smith. Half of the women who provided their accounts to various media outlets did so on the condition of anonymity. One anonymous accuser was identified as a Democratic congressional aide, and another described her politics as "liberal". "This was about right and wrong. I'd been groped by Franken in 2009". Newberger said on Thursday that he will continue his campaign against Klobuchar, not switching to the Franken seat. "I shouldn't have done it".

Franken has yet to respond to Dupuy's claims.

Gov. Mark Dayton said Friday morning that he will name a new US senator "in a couple days" but declined to talk about who it might be. "And there were", she said.

Menz said she watched his entire speech on CNN.

Two anonymous women told HuffPost that Franken touched their buttocks as they posed for pictures with them. "That's one party being better on women than the other party".

She said that if there had been an ethics investigation into allegations against Franken, she would have been willing to testify under oath. Franken has not responded.

"That's not irony", she said. "Tweeden's story rang true to me".
