@alfranken unfairly bracketed w/ accused serial sexual predators. He & I've been family friends for decades. As a comic, he could be crude. He went too far (& apologized). BUT: he's NOT predatory, adores his wife & family & is a lifelong champion of women's rights.
Howard Fineman is trash and always has been.
As for Al Franken?
He's grabbed women for years. He can't keep his hands off.
This took place on the set of SNL for years.
It's nothing new.
What's different is a woman is finally speaking out and she's got photographic proof.
He should resign immediately.
He doesn't "adore his wife."
He certainly wasn't adoring her when grabbing women's asses or trying to grope the woman in the photograph.
He is a predator.
And when he offends, he does that stupid snickering nonsense.
Al has always been a predator and always will be.
I've known Al for decades.
The recent allegation is true and it's who he is.
Howard Fineman needs to shut his lying mouth.
And whether or not Al was a 'family man' or whatever else, it doesn't change what he did.
He's a predator.
