(FoxNews.com) Six female Democratic senators on Wednesday called for Sen. Al Franken to resign in the wake of multiple sexual misconduct complaints made against the Minnesota lawmaker.

Sens. Claire McCaskill, Maggie Hassan, Kirsten Gillibrand, Patty Murray, Mazie K. Hirono and Kamala Harris all called for Franken to step down.

The women did not mince words.

“Sexual harassment and misconduct should not be allowed by anyone and should not occur anywhere. I believe the best thing for Senator Franken to do is step down,” Harris, D-Calif., said.

Hassan tweeted, “It is clear that Al Franken has engaged in a pattern of egregious and unacceptable behavior toward women. He should resign.”

Franken’s political career has been in peril since California radio broadcaster Leeann Tweeden posted a blog detailing how the Democratic senator kissed and groped her without her consent in 2006.

Tweeden posted a blog detailing the alleged incident and also tweeted a picture of what seems to be a grinning Franken standing over her as she sleeps, pretending to grab her breasts.

Franken has since apologized but other allegations from five additional women have surfaced since Tweeden’s claims….

More allegations also emerged Wednesday, with a woman accusing Franken of forcibly trying to kiss her – this time after a taping of his radio show in 2006….

    It is about time that women in the Democratic party tell Senator Franken to resign. For the good of the party, Senator Franken should resign. Any congressional personnel who is accused of sexual harassment or misconduct should be investigated and then resign. It is the only fair way we can keep our congressmen/women and senators of both parties in their place.

    • Janelle

      No, Kathryn, they should be backhanded very hard and not allowed out of their offices……….for months.

      • Glenn Jacobs

        If they assault a woman who is not able to backhand them hard enough, should she be allowed to pistol-whip them?

        • Kathryn Jordan

          I would say that woman should be allowed to pistol-whip them if she is not able to backhand them hard enough.

          • bendecido

            How about a kick to their genital areas? That will really get their attention. Ouch!!!!!

          • Brent

            That’s how the problem was solved in the old days…effectively I might add. I call for a return to those days 🙂

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Not a bad idea. Not only would it get their attention, it will also cause pain in the groin. Would be effective!

        • Janelle

          Yes!

      • Kathryn Jordan

        interesting thought. Would they be in their offices for months doing nothing? Would they not be able to attend committee meetings? just curious.

        • Janelle

          What do most of them do besides fundraise?

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Good question. Most of time it is arguing in both houses of Congress. They can’t get anything done in a bipartisan way. Would be nice if they could instead of butting heads by saying “I’m right and You’re wrong” or “it’s my way or the highway”. People in both houses of Congress have to get out of that mindset; that won’t happen anytime soon.

        • bendecido

          Kathryn, if they would be doing their jobs, America would be in a very different affluent position. Most of them are only looking out for their own financial good.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            You are correct. If people were doing their jobs, America would be in a very different position. The only way that will happen is for people to vote those candidates who should be in Congress and vote out those who should not.

        • Brent

          LOL..doing nothing would be an improvement over what the D’s do on a day-to-day basis.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Dems to work but maybe not to your liking. Sometimes it is not to my liking either. I would like to see (and I know this is wishful thinking) people working in a bipartisan manner.

  • Joe Pewter

    Franken trying to stick his tounge in the womens mouth is even more gross then grabbing their ass..then thinking he has the entertainer right to do so..Franken is a non funny fool…needs to resign based on stupidity as well

    • Mike

      Trump admitted on tape he could do worse and 16 women made allegations against him. Where is the demand by Republicans for his resignation?

      • Paper, Scissors, Glock

        The difference is that Trump didn’t do anything

        • Mike

          Yes he did. 16 women. Many of which had told others immediately after the incident. He admitted on the Howard Stern show that he would enter the changing rooms of Miss America pageants to look at the women while they were undressed. He admitted on tape to being able to sexual assault women. His first wife in a sworn deposition even accused him of rape. Of course none of that matters to the Trump sheeple.

          • Paper, Scissors, Glock

            Proof?

          • Mike

            There is audio of the Howard Stern show and of course the access Hollywood tape. The sworn testimony of his first wife is a matter of public record.

          • Kim

            His first wife retracted that statement. And the other was talk. Talk is much different than doing.

          • Mike

            He admitted that he walked in on Miss America contestants when they were dressing. As for his first wife she told multiple people immediately after the assault and under oath. Trump paid her off in the divorce, a divorce per court records granted due to inhumane treatment by Trump. In addition, to this day she is not allowed to talk about her marriage to Trump unless he allows her to.

          • Randall Hart

            You must be young, one can walk on beaches and see more. Then what about female reporter’s that go into NFL lockers to get a story. Then you have Obama making a law for anyone to go into any gender bsthroom, where were u then.

          • chris VN

            Not to a Democrat.

          • Joe Pewter

            your punkish comments are as meritless as FAKE MSM news casts

        • Roger Singletary

          None of it was proven and the so-called concerts that supposedly these happened at where found to not being had at that date, in that city, and the proposed star was not booked. The accusers shady, lying witnesses blew that big time. You would think the lying libs would have learned by now to buy more credible lying witnesses. Not too smart are these losers huh? And the so-called teen that got raped has been thrown of court for her accusation in Both California and NY. And what is a female that age doing riding public transit by her self from one side of the US to the other attending parties as such. .Just cannot seem to get their lies together!

      • 2shinyshoes

        All talk and no action. Assuming you’re a normal guy, can you honestly swear you’ve never told BS stories regarding women. Get over your bitterness.

      • Petethepilot

        The voters have already spoke their mind on this issue. This was obvious next step with the Trump haters once the Tax bill passed and the Muller investigation is coming unraveled with the appearance of extreme bias. The haters will do anything they can to attempt to remove him from office. Now that the American people can see right thru this as a sham. The president has them right where he wants them, he is setting the agenda and stage and they are now reacting badly. The table has turned and the haters are seen for what they are biased political losers who are supported by a biased news media. Not sure who is a worse the haters or the biased press.

      • Paper, Scissors, Glock

        Hey Mikey? MAGA

        • Mike

          Yes we certainly are making America great again for the 1percent. The rest of us well Trump does not care about us so why should his supporters.

          • Kenneth Patterson

            It was Obama who didn’t care and fu*ked up everything. It is the corrupt democrats who need to practice lying on a daily basis you should be focused on stupid!

          • Mike

            Obama inherited an economy in free fall and in the midst of one of the greatest recessions we have ever faced and helped pull us back from it. He increased employment and the stock market. The stock market increased 235% in his Presidency, the third highest in our nations history. He brought unemployment down to under 5% which cut it by more than half. In his last 9 months in office he created more jobs than President Trump did in his first 9 months. He was our leader when Osama Bin Laden was killed and worked hard to raise our standing in the world. He increased the number of jobs in green energy which is the future despite Trump wanting to take us back in time. He was able to have millions more Americans gain health insurance through a system designed by Republicans.

          • Paper, Scissors, Glock

            @Mike – If that’s true…which it isn’t, maybe you should be out working to be a one percenter instead of envying them and feeling sorry for yourself. MAGA

          • Mike

            I do not feel sorry for myself. My life is not perfect, but I don’t believe anyone’s is. I have a good job, family etc. The sad part is that Trump does not care about the middle class, but the sheeple who voted for him are willing to continue to blindly follow a man who continues to hurt them. Even his vaulted tax plan will raise taxes immediately on at least 13 percent in the middle class and after a few years the taxes for the middle class will go up across the board while multimillionaires like Trump and the 1 percent receive huge tax breaks. If you believe that is making America Great Again then I feel sorry for you because your ignorance can most likely not be helped.

          • Paper, Scissors, Glock

            You believe far to easily the pap you’ve been fed. You, for one example, throw that term 1%ers around as if you know what it means and who they are (who change hourly). You are a good little lib parrot. Be proud! Cry louder!

          • Mike

            I am sorry to hear about your accident. I assume you had one as there is no other explanation as to how anyone would believe Trump cares about the middle class.

          • Paper, Scissors, Glock

            You’re still trying…still hauling manure. Good little lib parrot.

  • Frankenstein and any other politician caught in sexual harassment should not get a cent in tax payer retirement!

  • David Ashcroft

    Frankin must resign- It is an affront to see him in Washington

    • Mike

      I agree. I assume you also want Trump and if elected Roy Moore to resign for the same reasons. If not are you only for resignations from Democrats?

      • Paper, Scissors, Glock

        Got the pictures of Moore…or Trump?

        • Mike

          The one picture of Franken shows him joking about touching her while she sleeps. There are no pictures of any contact and Franken has denied the other allegations. Do I think he should resign? Yes, but by your standards of needing photographic evidence I guess he does not need to.

      • Kathryn Jordan

        I agree with you. Seems like it is “we only want the resignations of Democrats” rather than be fair and ask for the resignation of a Republican Congressman or Senator who is accused of sexual harassment. It has go for both parties.

  • no job

    that creep should’ve never been put into office. He had no qualifications then or now. THEY BUY THESE LUCRATIVE POSITIONS. A license to steal from the working class. Drain the swamp, now.

    • Mike

      Trump has no qualifications to be President, but I guess that does not bother you.

      • Paper, Scissors, Glock

        He’s thirty-five or over and a US citizen…he’s qualified just like anyone else that meet those requirements. What constitution were you reading?

        • Mike

          That was my point. Franken is as qualified to be in the Senate as Trump is as president.

      • Kim

        Damn good job for someone with no qualifications. 🙂 the last community organizer sucked!

      • bendecido

        With all due respect Mike, neither did Obama, and he was elected twice, with voters knowing how bad of a president he was. And I believe that the women attacking Trump, retracted their accusations and one of them was proven to be lying about her accusations.

        • Mike

          None of the women that accused Trump have retracted their allegations. In fact, some were preparing a lawsuit but you cannot sue a sitting president so they have to wait.

          • Brent

            @bendecido:disqus He wasn’t president till January 20th 2017, so they had pleanty of opportunity to file up till that date.

            If i’m not mistaken, they can still file the case now…it just won’t go anywhere till he’s out of office. But then, I guess it’s too late…and that’s really the point now, isn’t it.

          • Mike

            That is not entirely correct as they cannot bring suit against a sitting President and as he was the President elect there was no reason to begin a court process which would be lengthy when they would be unable to begin depositions etc.

          • Brent

            Well, try not to be too surprised in 7 more years, when there’s not a thing filed.

          • Mike

            Since they cannot file the lawsuit I would assume that at least for three years that is true. Depending on the next election you are correct that would influence them.

      • no job

        we only had TWO choices. She was/is totally out of her mind. who’s left?

        • Mike

          I am sorry you made an error. Trump is man not a woman. It should read He was/is totally out of his mind. NO thanks is needed for correcting your mistake.

  • Mark Tillotson

    nice try ladies…..you’vebeen allowing this for decades feining shame and disgust NOW? It is too much, too little,too late.

  • Jim

    I can’t wait for the day when a straight woman comes out and accesses a lesbian woman in Congress that she was hit on. It will happen.

  • Mike

    I completely agree with the democratic senators. The question is whether the Republicans will have the same conviction should the pedophile Moore be elected by those “moral” people of Alabama.

    • Paper, Scissors, Glock

      Got the proof?

      • Mike

        There is proof showing Moore lied about having a relationship with the one woman as she has a signed graduation card from Moore. Of course Moore said he did not know any of the women. I guess he was lying.

        • Paper, Scissors, Glock

          Verified like the yearbook? Got any proof?

          • Mike

            It is a signed graduation card from Moore. The mother has also confirmed their “relationship.” Again the only photographic proof of Franken is a picture that shows him jokingly reaching for her breasts, not making contact. That is reprehensible, but based on your burden of proof you require he should not resign.

          • Paper, Scissors, Glock

            The alleged yearbook entry was also signed..but the yearbook is being withheld from forensic examination for some reason. The same with the card. What Franken was photographed doing to a sleeping woman may fit this from Cornell Law Info: “Generally, the essential elements of assault consist of an act intended to cause an apprehension of harmful or offensive contact that causes apprehension of such contact in the victim. The act required for an assault must be overt. Although words alone are insufficient, they might create an assault when coupled with some action that indicates the ability to carry out the threat. A mere threat to harm is not an assault; however, a threat combined with a raised fist might be sufficient if it causes a reasonable apprehension of harm in the victim.Intent is an essential element of assault.” There, so far, is no ‘proof’ Moore did anything at all…only conveniently timed accusations. There is photographic proof Franken committed sexual assault on an unaware defenseless woman..which is not a joke. There are also numerous accusations against Franken, as well…which would seem to satisfy your requirements for conviction if applied by you using the ‘Moore Technique’.

          • bobails

            Mike..that yearbook is a phony…Gloria Allred wont let it be examined because she knows it’s not Moore’s siggy

  • Okietim

    To those calling for Franken to resign over accusations of course that means you are calling for Trump to quit also? I’m all for punishing those ” found guilty” but I’m also for everyone having their day in court. No one is above the law.

    • Paper, Scissors, Glock

      Got the pictures?

    • bendecido

      Bingo, that brings Hillary to mind. You got it right.

  • tCotUS

    Oh, Big Al is such a sweet man.. Why I even have proof he is a gentlemen..I have a picture of him groping a woman’s breasts while she sleeps.. Now if that isn’t courtesy what the H*** is?
    ***Pure Sarcasm***

    • Mike

      Much better to do what Trump did and do it while they were awake or ask their mother for permission to date them before pushing yourself on them.

      • tCotUS

        OOOHHH poor little Liberal pedophile rump ranger ..Got your little feeling hurt did we?

        • Mike

          Not at all. I agree Franken should resign. I do wish that the Republicans were not such incredible hypocrites and hold their own leaders accountable.

          • tCotUS

            Ya know mikie…I like American Jobs kept here, I like a President that wants to shore-up our borders, make Americans a priority, shake down the evil that has plagued our Nation from the last Admin. . A President that respects the
            Constitution, Flag, Vets, Military, & Police. If you do not like it, you can always follow the other liar snowflakes that said they would leave the US if Trump was elected.

          • Mike

            Good to know your condemnation of sexual abuse and assault is only relevant if they do not align with your political views. How very pathetic of you.

          • Brent

            Shouldn’t be foreign to you. D’s have been doing it since ’92 or have you forgotten slick-willy?

  • Mikial

    So . . . I guess Liberal Democrats don’t actually support respect for women? Gee, what a surprise.

    • Mike

      They are at least speaking out demanding his resignation. That is more than the Republicans did to Trump or what they are doing with the pedophile Roy moore.

      • Paper, Scissors, Glock

        Can you prove any of your allegations…at all?

  • Bill

    Franken should resign. The picture is evidence that he thought he was a funny person instead he is a politician (perhaps exempt from corruption) like the rest of the people that WE elect to represent US. The rest of the demonrats that are saying “he should resign” better look into the mirror before they open their yaps. There are a lot of skeletons in closets in d.c. that have been kept under lock and key only because of the offices that are held by “legislators” making rules to benefit themselves. The whole darned bunch of corrupt politicians should be tossed into the ocean with anchors attached to their ankles.
    I am so sick and tired of all of the corruption and hypocrisy that exists in d.c. Time for term limits and starting over with a CLEAN SLATE.

  • Kim

    Dems are playing a game of political chess–sacrificing one or more of their own, only to hit back harder on the republicans (Moore for starters). Just watch.

    • Brent

      Yup, i think you’re right on track there.

    • Petethepilot

      Do you really think the good people of Alabama will vote in a far leftist Progressive, no way! Moore has already gained back in the polls an 9 point lead. They may not like his past acidity which occurred 40 years ago, they will vote him in because the voters see him as the better option. Even if he is tossed out of the Senate, a Republican will take his place. A win win for the Rebulicans.

  • SEABEETOM

    It must be getting close to be re-elected for these 6 senators and looking for votes. This has been going on for decades and these women knew about it. They are all enablers for allowing this to go on for so long. VOTE THEM OUT!!!

    • chris VN

      Especially Harris, she’s got HiLIARy’s aspirations for 2020. And she’s known as the ” female ” obuma, ( not that’s there really much difference between gay obuma and a woman?? )

      • SEABEETOM

        I wouldn’t vote for her even for dog catcher. hillary was a white female obummer.

  • Ken

    He should never have been allowed to steal the election in the first place. He is the most partisan politician in DC and that takes some doing. He is also the idiot that he portrayed for years on TV.

  • chris VN

    Might have known Harris would be one of these senators, we’ll be seeing / hearing a LOT more of this one before the 2020 elections.

  • icemancold

    Franken is a DEMOCRAT and LIBERAL so nothing will happen and he will not resign !! To do that would be admitting Guilt something Democrats and Liberals do not do.!!

  • Laura Dixon-Dybvad

    The first woman who accused him is a complete jackass! Tweeden was very aware of what was going on in that video and the photographer agreed that they all thought it was funny, Al Franken spoke out and apologized for what he realized was a very inappropriate video. Look at other pictures of this woman who is stepping forward in hopes that she will achieve some renown. Al has asked that the eithics committee examine the facts and come to a conclusion! This should definitely occur! Remember that one is innocent before being proven guilty! Support Al Franken’s right to a fair hearing!

    • vintageautomobilia

      Al Franken is a repulsive and sleezy liar and cheat. I hope they don’t give him a pension when he resigns in abject shame. As he should.

  • fishunter

    Remember that an allegation(s) is not a conviction.

    • Kathryn Jordan

      That is true.

  • BernieG

    When our Nations debt escalates to a number that can’t even quantify it because it will be so huge, none of this will matter.

  • TPS12

    Only six woman senators? Where are the rest of them? Guess they don’t mind.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    It would be good if Trump did the same thing that Franken did. Everyone in politics should be kept in place and that includes Trump.
