42. Probably, but by the same token we should not BLINDLY accept every accuser a being factual

Unless you have been living in a cave, people with political motives LIE.

Forgetting for a moment about the latest allegations of latest Al Franken accuser, let me ask another question instead.

What kind of person indicates they voted for Amy Klobuchar, and "maybe" Al Franken, but also voted for Donald Trump? What kind of LOGIC is that? Klobuchar and Franken have opposite views on EVERYTHING that Trump pushed during his campaign.

It doesn't mean the allegations are false, but it DOESN'T mean they are true either.

It is very hard for me to even conceive of Al Franken at a public fair, taking a photo-OP with someone, where crowds are all over the place, and grabbing her butt cheek in front of her husband.  What the hell for?  I cannot believe he is trying to "get off" on a 2 minute encounter like that, and while I might understand her not calling Franken out, when she tells her husband what Franken did, I sure as hell do NOT understand why her husband wouldn't.

Is the story true?  Maybe.  Is it valid to say that someone who voted for Trump might also lie?  More than maybe.  Turn on Fox News.  Look at the activities of James O'Keefe, Dinish D’Souza, Ashley Todd:

James O'Keefe is responsible for destroying ACORN, an organization that works with the most vulnerable in our society. What kind of people do that? What kind of people want to take away people's health care, destroy the environment, and fight against every program that attempts to help the most needy and vulnerable in our society?

I am sorry, but I am going to be skeptical on this one, and not take the person's story at face value, because frankly, I believe that a lot people who voted for Trump are not right in the head, and they DO LIE. She has made a serious charge against Al Franken to discredit him, and the fact that she voted for Trump, it is NOT unreasonable to be skeptical.
