Understanding Al Franken’s Resignation

“We all know the bitter truth surrounding what happened to Al (Franken). I think we all know it. And it has less to do with due process and more to do with Alabama. That’s it. They had to get him off the scene. They had to get him to resign in order to continue to continue to assault, legitimately so, the complete nut case running for the United States Senate as a Republican in Alabama,” explains veteran columnist Mike Barnicle as the Morning Joe panel compares the lack of due process for Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), who resigned after being accused of sexual harassment, and Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of sexual misconduct with underage girls. Listen to more of the conversation here and the regret some Democrats are expressing over pushing Franken to resign.
