In the USA, ANYONE can be charged with ANYTHING! Sometimes those charges have validity. Sometimes they are just BS. The way to separate wheat from political chaff is to investigate fully, as Franken, himself, called for. Why not just wait like civilized people for the results of the investigation? These are charges from years ago, not a bank robbery currently in progress, so I doubt there is any danger of Franken “getting away” if we take the time to do this right.
In the meantime, we could also look into the allegations that still warrant investigation that Trump raped a 13 year old. Both sets of charges may prove to be nothing, but we really need to check them out. Rape is rape, no matter who does it, just as harassment is harassment. Let’s introduce true justice that neither dismisses an accuser, nor railroads the accused. We could even brag to other countries about our even-handedness, and call it “The American Way”.
