SENATOR AL FRANKEN RESIGNATION REVEALS McCASKILL & MISSOURI DEMOCRATIC PARTY HYPOCRISY???



Many of the readers of this blog offer a fact check on today's big political news and how it applies locally . . .

Sure, Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill was party of the litany of politicos and ladies demanding the resignation of possibly the least funny comedian in modern American history . . .

BUT LET'S NOT FORGET THAT FORMER SENATOR AL FRANKEN WAS RAISING MONEY WITH MISSOURI DEMOCRATS ONLY ONE MONTH AGO!!!!

Better Times for the Missouri Super Minority . . .

STL Post-Dispatch: Al Franken serves up politics and laughs at the Democrats' Truman dinner

Like it or not, local politico and small biz owner Chris Moreno calls out this unfortunate fact of life . . .



And now, for better or worse, he's gone and hopefully not coming back to late night TV:

New York Times: Senator Al Franken Resigning Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

The question that we're left with . . .

DID SEN. McCASKILL & THE MISSOURI DEMOCRATIC PARTY REDEEM THEMSELVES WITH THIS FLIP-FLOP ON FRANKEN???

The fate of Missouri's 2018 Midterm might depend on the #MeToo fight and a crusade against middle-class white dude impropriety.

So? Big deal. The republican party is supporting Roy Moore.

Hey Claire, what about your Democratic Senate colleague, Bob Menendez?

Wow Claire. I'm so impressed that you jumped in to defend women as soon as you realized it had become completely safe to do so. :)

Al Franken is returning to his SNL gig.

Alec Baldwin will play Trump. Franken will play.....himself.

Politicians always put their interests first, their party's interest second and their constituents last. But throwing Franken under the bus is not necessarily bad for the D's, especially if they replace him with a new D. Wasn't it Truman who said if you want a friend in DC get a dog?

Trump is funnier than Franken. After all, he elicited guffaws from Billy Bush and snickers from every Republican voter in 2016. I'll bet on Mueller to be even funnier, getting the last laugh.

It's political science 101, on all sides. .Clair Has her political consultants,working overtime time to win the next election. The speech writers. And as many tonys kansas city readers knew you are being buffaloed on both sides this will be fun to watch. And if Pence campaigns,For Clairs.aponant it will be a close race. .

I'm not so sure. Mueller's investigation has already faced substantial credibility issues, not to mention the retractions by both ABC news and Bloomberg about their big bombshells related to the case.

Dems have been disappointed a lot on the Russia meme. Time will tell I guess.

All men are lechers to various degrees, why is this news to everyone. A stare, a whistle, a touch are not illegal and depending on the women not necessarily unwelcomed. Just say stop right then, not years or decades later and avoid the lech after that. Get it together ladies.

Al Franken had the best exit ever--he's leaving but an admitted groper (and maybe worse) is staying, and a pedophile may well be elected if Alabama lives down to expectations.

Hey 4:25 - a pedophile named Bob Menendez is already serving in the Senate, and he also ripped taxpayers off for $600K.

Whats with all those creepy photos of Joe Biden kissing on those children. The one of him kissing the woman playing a flute looks like he just squeezed her ass.

Moreno's relevance to this story is only racial. Dude has no room to talk for all his Democrat cancer money he stole.

Al was being a creep, forcing a kiss , however it wasn't earth shattering abuse to me.

@7:11 - Menendez is Fake News.

Also, a recent jury trial did not convict him on any bribery charges. As in not guilty.

Wrong again, 500 billion, trillion times.

Meanwhile in Alabama - Roy Moore: pedophile less.
