Honorable Al Franken, dishonorable Trump, dishonorable Roy Moore

Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota announced his resignation Thursday, having been credibly accused by eight women of inappropriate conduct.

Franken disputes many of the details, but for the sake of argument, we here assume that all the accusations are valid. They ended Franken’s political career after he agreed with fellow Democrats that he could no longer serve effectively.

Others live by far lower standards, as shown by a comparison of rap sheets.

Franken is accused of:

  • sticking his tongue down the throat of another entertainer during rehearsals for a 2006 USO skit in Afghanistan, then posing for a photo while she slept, clothed, pretending to grab her breasts.
  • grabbing the buttocks of three separate women when posing with them for photos at various events in 2007, 2008 and 2010.
  • putting his hand on the breast of an Army veteran during another USO tour in 2003.
  • trying to give a former elected official a “wet, open-mouthed kiss” during a 2006 event.
  • trying to forcibly kiss a congressional aide after a radio show taping in 2006.

That’s Al Franken.

Roy Moore, Republican Senate candidate in Alabama, has been credibly accused of sexual misconduct against nine girls and young women as a thirtysomething prosecutor, including:

  • initiating, in 1979, a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl, taking off her shirt and pants, removing his clothes and touching her over her bra and underpants, then guiding her hand to touch him over his underwear.
  • forcing himself in 1977 on a 16-year-old waitress in a car, groping her and trying to push her head onto his crotch.
  • asking out on dates six other teenagers between the ages of 16 and 18, and being barred from a local mall for pursuing high school girls.
  • groping a 28-year-old woman who came to his law office on legal business in 1991.

That’s Roy Moore, who is campaigning with blatant lies about the formerly young women he treated abhorrently, and with Trump’s strong support.
