Don't let the door hit you in the ass Kirsten. Al Franken and all that. I never supported you even slightly, I'm glad you couldn't find support for your sorry, opportunistic ass.

Yeah... I agree. I thought she (and others though she led it) handled that situation poorly and I am glad that there were political repercussions for it.
As far as I could tell, Franken handled the situation correctly. He apologized for behavior that he acknowledged, and he apologized for making women feel uncomfortable for the other times (when he might have thought, or still thinks, he did nothing wrong or didn't remember the incident). And he promised to try to learn from the experience so he did not make women feel uncomfortable in the future.
But, the #MeToo women saw blood in the water and wanted their pound of flesh, and there was nothing he could have given them that they would accept aside from his resignation. They were not willing to define a path forward for people who have made mistakes in the past, and were willing to acknowledge and try to learn from those mistakes, other than complete destruction.
They made it clear that the Republican strategy for dealing with #MeToo was the best one (from a political standpoint). Deny, deny, deny. Because admitting any fault will just make your #MeToo critics more ravenous.
It was toxic, and hopefully this will show them that and get them to change their behavior.
