Franken (and others) need to be removed from positions of power and influence.

Here's another bombshell coming out of these sexual assault allegations . . .

Congress has exempted themselves from FOIA, and sealed the records of anyone involved in past sexual misconduct allegations.  This is a fact that I doubt many people knew up to now.

So now we know they use taxpayer money to buy the silence of anyone accusing a member of Congress of these allegations, but they won't tell us who the scumbags are. They also won't tell us how much they pay to keep individuals silent.

This swamp is stinkier than we thought, and we had a pretty low bar to start with.

Breaking news about a Michigan rep.

Report: Conyers settled wrongful dismissal complaint over 'sexual advances'


Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the longest-serving current House member, reportedly settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 after a former employee accused him of firing her for resisting his "sexual advances."

Four former staffers signed affidavits, three of which were notarized, saying that Conyers, the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made engaged in unwanted sexual behavior with his female staff, BuzzFeed News reported Monday night.

Documents examined by BuzzFeed described a wide-range of inappropriate conduct, including making requests for sexual favors, caressing and touching, as well as having his staff contact and transport women they believed were sexually involved with him.

Four unnamed sources who were involved with the case confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the documents are authentic.

I'm shocked that a politician from Detroit would be involved in a any wrong doing...  it appears this is from the Bill Clinton hush money fund

A couple more pics of Al with friends.   He seems to be left hand dominant.

Yes and no.  Yes, I'm getting tired of it and no, it just underscores the apparent lack of civility by those that do it.  Lack of civility and abuse of power and position.

Franken is obviously a tit man.  Problem is, he needs to keep his hands to himself.  He also needs to resign his seat.

I thought this was interesting regarding the explanation for the sudden spikes in women/men coming forward.

I think that it is good to know when politicians are groping their constituents and/or our government employees.

Conyers got popped too.  The Free Press is calling for his immediate resignation.  Not because the dirty old man copped a cheap feel but because he paid off the gal (settlement) with taxpayer money.

He's been a turd for a long time.

Conyers is especially troubling.    The BuzzFeed story indicated that there are sworn affidavit(s) that he was flying girlfriends into town on the taxpayer dime and used government funds to pay a harassed employee to quietly leave.

I hope he goes to jail for misuse of Tax Payers dollars if these allegations are true.

It sheds some light on how ugly the swamp really is.
