One feminist perspective on Franken
She's a feminist but also a realist. She thinks that Franken should certainly accept a reasonable punishment but not be removed from the Senate. Why? Because he at least admitted the problem and is willing to undergo an investigation and is willing to atone. And just removing him set the precedent for other Democrats also guilty of such behavior. Since the Dem Party is consistently the only one that fights for womens rights, to just start dumping when we know the GOP will never reciprocate just further endangers those rights down the road. So punish him yes. Fire him, no. She talks about the kinds of punishment he should get in the link.
