Senator Gillibrand waited until it was safe to bombast these fellow democrats. Do you think she would have called Bill Clinton out early on in her career? No, but – hell no!
Where is Senator Gillibrand moral compass while Joe Biden continues to molest children and women? Isn’t he one of her friends?
What about Democrats Sherrod Brown and Tom Carper – both wife beaters.
She calls Franken her friend – if that is her friend – what does she do to her enemies?
After Sen. Al Franken was accused of sexual misconduct in November, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand made waves by calling for her fellow Democrat’s resignation. On Sunday’s 60 Minutes, the New York senator explains to Sharyn Alfonsi why she spoke out against a friend and colleague.
“Where’s my moral compass if I can’t speak out just because I like someone?” Gillibrand tells Alfonsi. “Just because they’re my friend? It’s okay to be a harasser as long as you’re my friend? That is not okay.”
Gillibrand didn’t stop with Franken. She told The New York Times that Bill Clinton should have resigned as a result of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Alfonsi notes both Bill and Hillary Clinton campaigned for Gillibrand, and asks why the senator is speaking out now. Gillibrand says she, like many others, wasn’t focused enough on the issue in the past.
“I think I’m not alone here,” Gillibrand says. “How many of us were having this conversation even a year ago? I think we’re all learning.”
Sure, she is learning to be political democrat – sell your friends down the river when it is convenient for your own career.
