Delaware Senator reacts to sexual harassment allegations against Sen. Al Franken


One Delaware Senator is reacting to sexual harassment allegations against a fellow colleague. In the wake of revelations Senator Al Franken impressed himself upon Leeann Tweeden and groped her while she slept during a USO tour in 2006, Senator Tom Carper released the following statement:

“Sexual harassment is always unacceptable, and the behavior attributed to Senator Al Franken a decade ago is deeply troubling and disappointing. The Senate Ethics Committee should look into this matter, and I understand Senator Franken welcomes this investigation.”

Senator Carper also saw a chance to take a swipe at the president, continuing:

“Assertions of deplorable behavior by President Trump have been made by many women over many years, and I deeply regret those allegations will never be scrutinized the way they should be.”
