CONTRASTING

Hillary: Al Franken Accepted ‘Responsibility,’ Unlike Roy Moore

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton drew a contrast between the responses to allegations against President Trump and Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore and those against Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) during an interview with Rita Cosby on WABC radio. Clinton said that Franken, who was accused this week of groping a female broadcaster in 2006, acted responsibly by apologizing and requesting to have the Senate ethics panel investigate his sexual misconduct. "I deeply regret what he did," Clinton said. "There's no excuse for his behavior. But he's called for an investigation. He's apologized to the woman involved." She went on to say that is "the kind of accountability I’m talking about.” “I don't hear that from Roy Moore or Donald Trump,” Clinton added. “Look at the contrast between Al Franken, accepting responsibility, apologizing, and Roy Moore and Donald Trump, who have done neither.”
