"Really, I do believe that he made the right decision for Minnesota, because it's clear that regardless of whether Sen. Franken wants to own those allegations or deny them, they are there. And when they are there, we must believe until there is reason to not believe. That is how our system should work," Larson said.
That's a strange take on the whole innocent til proven guilty theory, but right in line with one of the manias sweeping the country lately. Certainly there are men who are scum who deserve the worst, but anyone who doesn't also acknowledge that some women, like some men, also lie, and that every human interaction has at least two different interpretations, is willfully foolish and or politically correct. Is that redundant? Perhaps they've never quit a job because of the behavior of a woman who told lies.
I don't really care about Franken, but it's simultaneously amusing and pathetic to see the Democrats expressing the need to be moral and righteous, thus proving that they learned absolutely nothing from the last presidential election. Republicans are laughing, not resigning.
