The swarm of top-level Democrats calling for Sen, Al Franken’s resignation weren’t motivated by moral concerns.
At least, that’s what Rush Limbaugh believes. And he’s probably right.
“I don’t think the Democrat Party standing up now in so-called righteous indignation… I don’t think it has anything to do with the Democrat Party and decency and justice…This is all about one thing, and it’s why I thought that Al Franken would hang on. This is all about Roy Moore,” Limbaugh expounded.
“This is all about the Democrats’ desperate effort to contrast the way they handled the Franken thing and the way the Republicans are handling the Roy Moore thing, and then in an ancillary way, the way Republicans are not dealing with the Trump thing.”
Franken himself made sure to fling insults at President Trump and Moore during his resignation speech. The ruined politician was open about the fact that his decision to quit was motivated entirely by political considerations. He still claims to be innocent.
“They never let Al Franken face his accusers. You know, Franken wanted to go to the Ethics Committee. He wanted these allegations examined. He claimed all along that he would be found innocent. But they weren’t gonna let that happen,” mused Limbaugh.
Republicans are holding on to Roy Moore because the accusations against him are unsubstantiated and he would be a critical ally in the Senate. Franken is disposable. Democrats don’t need him, so they’re willing to toss him out of office. Now they can brag about being tough on sexual abusers.
“There’s a Democrat governor in Minnesota that’s gonna name Franken’s replacement… the Democrats are gonna hold the seat. So Franken became expendable. Franken became a pawn. Franken became a nonentity. Franken became a nobody to them. At the end of the day, they didn’t care about Al Franken,” noted Limbaugh.
