Bye, Al

I share a lot of political views with Al Franken and think that he was an effective Senator. He’s also a serial sexual harasser who has no business holding a position of authority in our government and his resignation is welcome. 

Governance and politics is about policy, not personalities. No figure in a democracy is irreplaceable. Do not make heroes out of politicians. If tossing one to the curb imperils your movement, your movement is flawed.
