Pavlich: Female Senators Don't Want to Work With Al Franken
At least five women have accused Franken of being sexually inappropriate, with a new accuser saying Franken forcibly tried to kiss her after a taping of his radio show in 2006.
Franken will make an announcement Thursday as the calls for his resignation grow among his female Senate colleagues and from two male senators as well.
"The time has come for Senator Franken to step aside," said Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).
Sexual harassment and misconduct should not be allowed by anyone and should not occur anywhere. I believe the best thing for Senator Franken to do is step down.

As elected officials, we should be held to the highest standards—not the lowest. The allegations against Sen. Franken describe behavior that cannot be tolerated. While he’s entitled to an Ethics Committee hearing, I believe he should step aside to let someone else serve.

Katie Pavlich reacted on "Outnumbered," saying Capitol Hill is an important workplace and female lawmakers and young female staffers must feel comfortable in that environment.
"Women in the Senate don't want to have to work with someone like Al Franken, who is engaged in that type of behavior. It makes it very awkward," she said.
David Bossie said it looks like the "end" for Franken after the "avalanche" of calls for him to go.
"He's gotta go."
