In his defiant resignation speech late Thursday morning, disgraced U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) proclaimed himself the victim and blamed his fall from grace on the hurling of false accusations of sexual misconduct against him.
The only responsibility the belligerent and noticeably angry Franken seemed to want to accept is that “in responding to their claims, I also wanted to be respectful of that broader conversation[.]”
Responding in this way, he believes, is what cost him his Senate seat because it resulted in people getting the “false impression that I was admitting to doing things that I, in fact, haven’t done.”
He then came right out and declared some of his accusers liars, “Some of the allegations against me are simply not true. Others I remember very differently.”[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/12/07/disgraced-sen-al-franken-lying-left-wing-women-forced-resign/” target=”_blank”]
