I read an article a while back by a guy who said he saw Al Franken and his partner in comedy Tom Davis perform at a small college town bar in 1979 at the height of his Saturday Night Live fame. At one point during the show, a slow song began playing and both Franken and Davis chose two teen girls from the crowd and began slow dancing.
Soon after both Franken and Davis began fondling the girl's butts to the delight of the crowd. When the girls moved their hands up, seconds later both Franken and Davis moved them back and proceeded with their butt massage. This went on the entire song and that was the extent of the bit. Was this a regular part of the show?
This week a young woman named Lindsay Menz has come forward and accused Franken of fondling her butt while her husband was taking her picture with the Senator at the Minnesota State Fair. She said she couldn't believe he did it and was so shocked by the brazen move that she relates the details like it happened yesterday.
I guess it's not surprising that Buttman has no recollection of this inappropriate encounter. Perhaps he believes that is the price the young ladies must pay to get close to Fish Lips Franken.
Every time an NFL player is arrested there is renewed discussion of the high rate of crime among NFL rosters. There are 1696 players in the NFL at any given time and since 2000 there have been 855 total arrests for crimes ranging from shoplifting and DUI to sexual assault and drug charges. The average NFL(not for long) career lasts 3.3 years so in that length of time tens of thousands of players have been on an NFL roster during this period of time.
The revelation this week that during this same period of
time(2000-2017)there is evidence that 265 complaints of sexual
assault and harassment claims against U.S. Congressmen have been secretly settled to the tune of $17 million dollars using taxpayer funds and the names of the offenders kept secret.
There are 535 Congressmen and women and 68 of them have been arrested over the years, which seems like a lot since Congressman get away with a lot of things you, I and most NFL players would be arrested for.
So far these Congressional perv's have kept their names hidden from the public. We need to call for transparency and a release of the names of every one one of these molesters bailed out with taxpayer funds.
The average years of service in Congress are 10 years and for the traitors in leadership positions, it is not unusual to see 20 to 30-year careers. A renewed call for term limits needs to become part of any conversation about our elected officials. History has proven that the longer these guys serve the more power mad and corrupt they are. John "Traitor" McCain could be the poster child for term limits.
Anyone who doesn't play ball is not there for long. The big difference between Congressmen and NFL players is that everytime an NFL Player does something wrong it is reported everywhere in the country within hours. When a politician breaks the law it is typically covered up. Hopefully, that's about to change.
