Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) seemed to defend Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) who have both been accused of sexual harassment and assault by saying, “Sometimes good people do bad things,” on Wednesday.

NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Hirono if she was comfortable serving with Franken and Conyers, both of whom have been accused of sexual harassment and assault

“I have served with them before we knew that, that they engaged in this kind of behavior, which, by the way, anybody who engages in this behavior should be held accountable,” Hirono responded. “But, notice that good people do bad things.”

Hirono continued, “Gee, I wish that life were so black and white that you can’t think of a single person who, you know, a good person who has done bad things. So this gets a little complicated.”

Hirono concluded by saying that she doesn’t believe things will change until the culture where women are seen as objects is changed.
