I imagine Ellison has enemies within the Democrat base over his religion Me too... Watching people fall from our pedestals is unpleasant. Anyway, I'm watching Andrea Mitchell, she had Ruth Marcus on (a decent reporter) lamenting how Franken's resignation is not a good outcome for women and justice. Huh??? Tweeden is pointing out how she didn't ask for Franken to resign. She angered a bunch of Democrats and is feeling the heat. I guess Marcus thinks the better outcome for women and justice would be silence. Maybe thats why women are reluctant to speak up, even their 'allies' tend to disappear when they do.
