    Yeah, CNN reporting on this is unusual. I guess they couldn't evade it anymore.

    Meanwhile, another report of Franken trying an unwanted sexual advance, this time he allegedly said, "it's my right as an entertainer." This one is from a former Democratic congressional aide. Unlike the previous six reports he is denying this one. I wonder if this is the report that prompted the call from these Democrats for Franken to resign? You know, one of our own has been wounded, and all that. I wonder who her boss was?

    ---
    A former Democratic congressional aide said Al Franken tried to forcibly kiss her after a taping of his radio show in 2006, three years before he became a U.S. senator.

    The aide, whose name POLITICO is withholding to protect her identity, said Franken (D-Minn.) pursued her after her boss had left the studio. She said she was gathering her belongings to follow her boss out of the room. When she turned around, Franken was in her face.

    The former staffer ducked to avoid Franken’s lips. As she hastily left the room, she said, Franken told her: “It’s my right as an entertainer.”

    “He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me. It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like ‘Wait, what is happening?’ But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked,” the aide said in an interview. “I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.’”

    Another one bites the dust thus saving Minn voters allot of time and aggravation. The guy was a clown anyway!

    Franken basically stole his initial election to the Senate. Votes were magically popping up everywhere during the recount, in the back of cars, closets, everywhere. This couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
