Illinois' U.S. Senators aren't exactly giving their colleague Al Franken a free pass after claims Franken groped a female radio eleven years ago during a USO tour.
Senator Tammy Duckworth says "These types of actions are simply unacceptable and should be reviewed by the Ethics Committee. Women across America should be able to feel safe in their workplace, and they deserve our support when coming forward with allegations of misconduct.”
Senator Dick Durbin also weighed in. There is never an excuse for this behavior—ever. What Senator Franken did was wrong, and it should be referred to the Ethics Committee for review.
