Sanders: Resign For Sexual Misconduct

Sanders: Resign For Sexual Misconduct

The Vermont senator called on President Donald Trump to "pay attention" to what has been happening and consider stepping down.

"Well let me take it a little step further", Sanders replied. A number of accusers came forward last October following the release of the "grab 'em by the pussy" tape that Sanders referenced.

While Sen. Sanders stated that allegations against powerful politicians and celebrities are troubling, he is also anxious about everyday women in restaurants and offices across the country who face sexual harassment and assault from employers who are not famous.

"What I worry about right now, as we speak, in restaurants and in offices all over this country where you have bosses who are not famous, there is harassment of women and women are being intimidated".

"I am proud that during my time in the Senate that I have used my power to be a champion of women", Franken said from the US Senate floor. Franken resigning, how can Republicans justify a "Sen".

Franken denied allegations several women have made against him and did not offer an apology. Sanders changed his tune along with his Democratic colleagues, calling for Sen.

"I, of all people, am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaign for the Senate with the full support of his party", Franken said, according to CNN.

On Dec. 7, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked if Trump would address the allegations against him following Franken's resignation.
