Senator Al Franken has been accused of sexual harassment by tow accuser, but don’t be fooled by the response of the Senate. Mr. Franken has been very apologetic, sort of, in responding to the charges. In what seems to be the greatest of piety, he even asked that the Senate conduct an ethics investigation into his actions. That is where the train goes off the rails. Do you want to know what a Senate investigation does? Read on, please!
As Written By Ben Shapiro for the Daily Wire:
So, we now have not merely a credible allegation of sexual harassment, but an evidenced one, this one by Sen.

Franken has apologized – well, sort of – and said that he respects women.
Have Democrats reacted with the same kind of ardor and alacrity to the Franken accusations to which they reacted to the Roy Moore allegations of underage sexual abuse? To read the headlines, you might think so: many Democrats are calling for a Senate ethics investigation. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated, “Sexual harassment is never acceptable and must not be tolerated. I hope and expect that the Ethics Committee will fully investigate this troubling incident as they should with any credible allegation of sexual harassment.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also called for an ethics probe, as did Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Claire McCaskill (D-MO), and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), among others.
Wow, you might say. Those Democrats – they sure take sexual harassment allegations seriously, unlike those mean, nasty Republicans!
Here’s what you need to know about ethics investigations: they never go anywhere. Don’t believe me? Between 2007 and 2016, the Senate Ethics Committee imposed zero sanctions …….
