DaTechGuy: Franken's resignation will help the Democrats in the midterms  There is some truth in this.  Dems finally booted out Conyers and Franken. Moore may well win. But as for the midterms, there is a bit of time between then and now. Who knows what other Democrats (or Republicans for that matter) will get accused.  Of course, Republicans know they have to avoid these scandals. Dems are just learning how vulnerable they really are.  And as Hot Air (and Powerline) note, if Moore wins and Franken un-resigns, will Democrats back him?  


  1. I thought only Republicans resigned.

    Trump really has changed things.

    1. Trump definitely helps. It is not all Trump, Weiner resigned, thanks to Andrew Breitbart. Of course, it is easy to kick out their own when the seat is safe. Bob Menendez is safe, at least until a Democrat governor takes over NJ.

  2. Bob is safe, which makes this obvious "ok, we made ours resign, so why will you vote in Moore" tactic so silly. Moore voters are not hypocrites for waiting for solid evidence or even a trial before acting negatively towards him. Menendez has gotten far more that than. A hypocrite is someone who one week calls a person an icon and the next week says he should resign. Or a feminist that openly says a Senator should say despite the allegations because of his voting record on abortion, and the victim should just take one for the team. Those are hypocrites.
