WE believe that Senator Al Franken has been wrongly pressured by Senate Democrats to resign. 

WE believe that Senator Al Franken has been "swift-boated" by Republican forces banking on the #MeToo frenzy to stifle thoughtful discourse and proper evaluation of the skinny allegations of sexual harassment made against him.

WE believe that because the #MeToo movement is so powerful, Republican operatives banked on otherwise careful Democrats jumping on the bandwagon yelling "resign" for fear of being accused of not being sensitive to victims or being too political. 

WE are #MeToo.  We are the victims of sexual predators and sexual harassers. We are the sisters and brothers, fathers and mothers and cousins of victims of sexual harassers, and sexual assaulters. And we believe Senator Franken has made no woman a victim of sexual assault. 

WE request that Senator Franken not submit his resignation. WE demand an ethics hearing where all parties will be placed under oath and subject to examination under penalty of perjury.

WE are aware, as Senator Franken said, "that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of the sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party."

WE urge Senator Franken not to resign. We urge commencement of an Ethics Inquiry.

WE are #MeToo. WE are strong. WE are loud. WE vote. WE resist.
