Democrats need a political opportunity to morally preen against Republicans who are going to put Roy Moore in the Senate. It is no coincidence that this is happening as Roy Moore rebounds in the polls, higher now in those polls against Doug Jones than before the accusations came out.
So using the seventh accuser as an excuse, in a more likely than not coordinated effort, Democrats in the Senate and the DNC Chair because to demand Al Franken resign and he will hold a press conference tomorrow doing so. Then the Democrats can go back to attacking Roy Moore.
But make no mistake about this. If the Governor of Minnesota were a Republican and the Democrats had a one or two seat Senate majority, the Democrats would be behaving just as the GOP is behaving with the Alabama Senate seat. The party of Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein really has no moral high ground. The media is just going to pretend they do for today.
And now I'll remind all you Republicans nodding along that you're about to send a man credibly accused of child molestation to the United States Senate and the only real reason you reject the use of the word "credibly" is because you don't want to believe the accusers, but were fine believing Paula Jones, Juanita Broderick, Kathleen Willey, etc.
