" It's my right as an entertainer."

Worse than a line out of a cheap B movie.This little jewel was the linchpin that sealed my belief that Al Franken was railroaded. I don't post a lot, but this has been nagging at me like a bad itch ever since I first read it. After following Franken's career as a comedian, and maintaining a general knowledge of his political career, it is my opinion that there is no way in hell that these words ever came from Al Franken's mouth. Just imagine if you will the alleged intern hastily exiting the room and Al Franken yelling after her, "It's my right as an entertainer. Franklin has been a sitting Senator since 2008, far removed from his days as a comedian and entertainer. It is my firm belief that had this episode actually occurred, and if he yelled anything at the alleged intern, absurd as it is, it would have increased her credibility tenfold if she had said he yelled "It's my right as a senator", which is still worse than a line out of a b movie that cost $10 more to make.
My belief is so strong that if Al Franken stood in front of me and confessed to uttering this statement, I would be looking for the red dot he knew was there from the laser scope attached to the rifle being held by a sniper with orders to shoot to kill if he did not confess to making this statement.
Some people say "move on, it's over and done", and even knowing there's not much I can do about it except write an email or letter, it won't be over and done for me until Franken's name has been cleared and his reputation made whole again.

Bartcop quote relevant today

"how did I end up in a party of pitiful quitters?"

If rolling over in one's grave was a real thing, bartcop would probably be doing about ten thousand revolutions per minute.
