Franken loses in the court of public opinion when a cache of uncounted women were suddenly found in a trunk of a car.
36 SNL Women ‘Offer Solidarity in Support’ of Franken, Downplay Actions as ‘Stupid and Foolish’.
Thirty-six of Sen. Al Franken’s (D., Minn.) previous female “Saturday Night Live” coworkers signed a letter to express their support while downplaying the senator’s actions as “stupid and foolish.”
“We feel compelled to stand up for Al Franken, whom we have all had the pleasure of working with over the years,” the letterbegan.
The SNL women, most of whom held positions in writing, said they know Franken “as a devoted and dedicated family man, a wonderful comedic performer, and an honorable public servant.” They agreed with Franken’s response to accusations, saying “it was appropriate for him to apologize to Ms. Tweeden and the public.”
