Why Al Franken’s departure means nothing for Trump or Moore

I am hearing a lot of the left complaining that if Senator Franken steps down so should Trump and Moore. While the accusers on all fronts have had some pretty gross and specific things happen to them and one offender is potentially a pedophile, there is one simple disconnect with that thought process: prior knowledge.

The Trump and Moore voters knew exactly what they were getting when they were voted in, or before the vote. Franken on the other hand assumed a position of power with what appears to be a few skeletons in the closet. I am not saying any of this is right or wrong but the fact is Franken, who barely won his seat by 300 votes most likely would not have won if this stuff was known prior. Trump won by an electoral landslide and it looks like Moore will also win by a wide margin.

So sorry lefties, it’s just not apples to apples in this case.
