Politics is about perception more than capability or truth nowadays...a look at the president should make that clear. I have doubts about what happened to Franken, there's no clear proof of anything aside from the picture with Tweeden, and it's not clear that was really out of line (considering the other things happening around it). But, as a politician, Franken was caught in something that made him look bad, and even if it was a bunch of untrue allegations that doesn't change what happened because of them, in that he got caught in the moment where women are finally standing up and fighting back. It's sad that it's only taking down liberals, while people like Moore and Trump continue to have support...but that tells you something about the character of the nation and the groups within it.
We are at a moment where women are finally receiving their due, at least from part of the nation, and the turbulence around that will catch some people who probably don't deserve to be crushed, simply because they did something considered silly and normal years or decades ago that's not good now. That's just how life is...the question is how we sustain the moment to make sure women are treated fairly, and extend it so we don't have monsters like Moore almost reach the Senate anymore.
