Kirsten Gillibrand Responds to Al Franken New Yorker Piece – She is still right, he is still wrong.

Gillibrand was also critical of Jane Mayer’s New Yorker piece on Al Franken that was published on Monday morning, pointing out that it focused almost solely on Leeann Tweeden, the first woman to come forward with allegations against Franken. “There was really no critical or investigative journalism or reporting on the other seven, and that certainly causes me pause,” Gillibrand said. “He had eight credible allegations against him—two since he was senator, and the eighth one happened to be a congressional staffer.”Will Gillibrand ever have to stop answering questions about Franken? Probably not!“Women are asked to hold accountable their colleagues. The men are not,” Gillibrand said. “Who is being held accountable for Al Franken’s decision to resign? Women senators, including me. It’s outrageous. It’s absurd.”
