    Luther Strange isn’t the only current US Senator on his way out the door. In a few days, Al Franken will submit his resignation as promised last week, and Tina Smith will take his seat at least until a special election in November chooses his successor. As it turns out, Minnesota voters aren’t entirely happy about Franken’s resignation — and half of them want Franken to renege on his pledge to resign, according to a new PPP poll: -50% of voters think he should not resign, to only 42% who think he should go through with his planned resignation. There...

    Papa Johns’ founder John Schnatter will step down as CEO following an intense backlash sparked by his criticism of NFL players protesting the National Anthem. The company’s president, Steve Ritchie, will take over as CEO. Business Insider reports: Schnatter sparked controversy in November when he slammed NFL leadership over the ongoing national anthem protests. “Leadership starts at the top, and this is an example of poor leadership,” CEO John Schnatter said in a call with investors. […] Schnatter owns roughly 25% of Papa John’s, and will stay on as chairman after stepping down as CEO in January. According to a...
  • Getting rid of Bob Menendez would be “appalling”

    Hot Air.com ^ | December 19, 2017 | JAZZ SHAW
    As we noted here previously, there were a few people in the media cautiously suggesting that while the #MeToo movement was sweeping away alleged sexual offenders in Congress this year, it might be an opportune time for the Democrats to relieve themselves of the embarrassment of having Bob Menendez hanging around. The New Jersey Democrat narrowly dodged a bullet when his corruption case ended in a mistrial, but that far from exonerated him. So if pressure from colleagues was enough to show Al Franken the door (assuming he actually leaves), might the same tactic work with Menendez? And more to...

    Liberal radio host Thom Hartmann called President Trump's refusal to step down at the request of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) "as blatant a demonstration of sexual harassment as I've ever seen. After the Senator politely demanded that Trump resign following a renewed series of allegations of sexual misconduct Trump callously blew her off. That's horrifying and clearly am impeachable offense." Gillibrand wasn't the only Democrat insisting that warmed over allegations ought to be enough to oust a sitting president. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore) also called on Trump to resign saying that "the sheer number of accusations represents a 'critical mass'...

    Al Franken didn’t resign, he announced he “intends” to resign in a few weeks (after the Judge Roy Moore election). If Judge Roy Moore gets elected in Alabama expect Franken to have a change of heart. He'll use Moore's victory as a reason to NOT resign. "I can't in good conscience resign and let a child molester fill a vacancy without me being here", or some such garbage. I think many of us agree the liberal hit squad is what is coming after Moore, not true "victims". Their timing, the amount of time it took for them to come forward,...
