Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) reacted live to the news that Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) would retire from Congress effective immediately following accusations from several former female staffers that Conyers sexually harshed them.

“This is a time in our county where we should not just be focusing on Conyers doing, I think, the right thing. But we should be focused frankly on the larger issue. Why are there millions and millions and millions of Americans who are going through harassment and other kinds of sexual assault?” Booker told MSNBC.

“It is important to hold them accountable and to do the right thing,” Booker continued. “Because right now there are people who suffered harassment literally in restaurants and in their workplaces, in their factories. We’ve got to change the culture here.”

“Again, we want to make sure our leadership in Washington is setting the standard, but all of us have to take responsibility for changing the culture,” Booker concluded.

While Booker’s answer to MSNBC would suggest that Booker wants to hold those accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault accountable for their actions, his actions tell a different story.

Booker along with fellow Senate Democrats have not yet called for the resignation of their colleague, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN).

Multiple women have now accused Franken of sexual assault. Instead of calling on Franken to resign, Senate Democrats seem fine with a lengthy Ethics Committee investigation of Franken.

This is despite Franken’s own constituents supporting the Minnesota senator’s resignation, according to a recent KSTP/SurveyUSA survey.
