Gillibrand Won’t Say Franken Should Resign

She previously said President Clinton should have resigned, but the Democratic senator has trouble holding her own party to account when they're still relevant.

Perhaps Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) insistence that President Bill Clinton should have resigned during the Monica Lewinsky scandal in the 1990s was less than genuine, given her current stance on accused Sen. Al Franken (D-MN). In an appearance on WCNY’s “Capitol Pressroom,” Gillibrand refused to say that the Minnesota senator should resign.

Asked on the show if Franken should resign, Gillibrand punted.

“It’s his decision,” she said. “I think his behavior is unacceptable on any level and is infuriating.”

However, Franken’s behavior was not enough to compel her to demand his departure. “Minnesota voters will make their own choice, and Al Franken will make his own choice,” Gillibrand added.

Gillibrand previously said that she thought Clinton should have resigned during the Lewinsky scandal, but she refused to return Clinton donations.
