MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Republican Party of Minnesota Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan released the following statement in response to sexual assault allegations against United States Senator Al Franken:
“Today’s allegations of sexual harassment committed by Senator Al Franken are deeply disturbing. Based on these accusations, and the accompanying photographic evidence, I am calling on Senator Franken to resign his Senate seat. The people of Minnesota deserve better representation than this in the United States Senate.
“Al Franken’s weak, equivocating apology isn’t going to cut it. To quote Senator Franken just yesterday- ‘sometimes when you don’t get a joke, it’s because it wasn’t a joke.'”
