CLINTON VICTIMS, MEDIA EQUALITY PROJECT STORM CAPITOL HILL DEMANDING FRANKEN AND CONYERS RESIGN
In the wake of damning evidence that Al Franken has brazenly harassed women for decades, why won’t the Minnesota senator resign?
With some liberal groups now playing defense as more accusers emerge, Franken used the Thanksgiving holiday to apologize for “making some women feel badly“. Apparently, he believes a mere apology tour will suffice.
We disagree and feel so strongly that we’re taking the Media Equality Project straight to Washington. Dozens of women and other victims of sexual harassment are joining together this Wednesday with this message:
#ShowUsTheList of representatives or staffers who received taxpayer funded pay-outs totaling $17 million dollars.
The Media Equality Project is bringing Bill Clinton’s victims, other luminaries, including Dr. Alveda King, niece of the late Martin Luther King, and others to Washington to confront Senator Franken and Congressman John Conyers. We believe that this effort should be in a spirit of bi-partisanship in order to end sexual harassment on Capitol Hill and across the country.
Franken’s long history of inappropriate behavior combined with “Captain Underpants” a/k/a Congressman Conyers, who accusers say has paraded around his office without appropriate attire, as well as verbal and sexual harassment that has resulted in official complaints and financial pay-outs.
The Media Equality Project says “enough is enough."
Joining us at the podium at the National Press Club are Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Leslie Millwee, (who was stalked and assaulted three times by Bill Clinton while she was a TV reporter in Fort Smith, Arkansas,) as well as Melanie Morgan, who shared her story of harassment and stalking by Senator Franken, Brian Maloney, co-founder of The Media Equality Project and MediaEqualizer.com, talk show host Blanquita Cullum and many others of all socio-economic backgrounds and ethnicity.
We have invited Senators Kirsten Gillibrand,(D-NY) Diane Feinstein (D-CA), Congresswomen Jackie Speirer,(D-CA) Kathleen Rice (D-NY) Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (D-VA) plus Melanie Sloan, head of the Liberal watchdog group Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility.
Our message is clear: Both Senator Franken and Congressman Conyers must resign now! And Congress must end taxpayer-funded payouts to harassment victims in an effort to silence their voices and complaints.
The Media Equality Project joins with any Congressman or Senator who will support this critical legislation. Our guests will be available for Media interview requests.
When: Wednesday, November 29th 10:00 AM
Where: National Press Club, First Amendment Room, 529 14th Street, NW Washington, D.C.

At this point I think that a real "Man Bites Dog" story would be about a Washington politician who has NOT harassed a woman (or man, to be thorough). That guy is probably in the same category as the proverbial Irishman who doesn't drink, i.e. dead.

English Oxford Living Dictionaries (Online)
"There are two possible pronunciations of the word harass: one with the stress on the 'har-' and the other with the stress on the '-ass'."
