If Gillibrand is automatically disqualified because she called on Franken to resign...

then so are Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Elizabeth Warren. All of them also demanded Franken resign.

Having a deal breaker for supporting a candidate is fine, but we should be consistent. Gillibrand isn't my first choice, but I think it's absurd to crucify her on this and give everyone else a pass.

And, for the record, here are all the other Democratic Senators who said the same thing as Gillibrand:

Tammy Baldwin
Tammy Duckworth
Mazie Hirono
Chuck Schumer
Claire McCaskill
Maggie Hassan
Patty Murray
Bob Casey
Joe Donnelly
Sherrod Brown
Debbie Stabenow
Heidi Heitkamp
Ed Markey
Michael Bennet
Maria Cantwell
Dick Durbin
Patrick Leahy
Martin Heinrich
Dianne Feinstein
Jeff Merkley
Ron Wyden
Tom Carper
Tom Udall
Sheldon Whitehouse
Gary Peters
Chris Murphy
Jon Tester
Jack Reed
Angus King
Bill Nelson
