If you’re still not convinced the sexual assault allegations against Roy Moore are a political hit job, you only need to contrast the reaction to his case against that of Sen. Al Franken by Senate Majority Mitch McConnell to see otherwise.

When the allegations first arose against Moore last week, McConnell and other Senate Republicans led the charge demanding Moore to drop out of the race, despite there being no evidence of wrongdoing on Moore’s behalf; there was only accusations of misconduct that occurred 40 years ago. Despite this, the calls for Moore to drop out have been growing, with McConnell himself stating that he’d move to not even allow the former judge to be seated if he wins the election.

Republican leaders are exploring a dramatic remedy to salvage the Alabama Senate seat as fresh polling shows Roy Moore’s prospects fading fast.

With less than four weeks until the special election and no sign that the party’s besieged nominee will exit the race, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his top advisers are discussing the legal feasibility of asking appointed Sen. Luther Strange to resign from his seat in order to trigger a new special election.

Reading that piece, you’d think that McConnell and his GOP allies were seriously concerned over an alleged predator serving among their ranks. However, you’d be wrong.

Earlier, we reported that Minnesota Sen. Al Franken has now come under fire over allegations, backed by photographic evidence, that he committed sexual assault against former model Leeann Tweeden. In a picture Tweeden released, Franken is seen groping her breasts while she slept, and she claims he also kissed and touched her without her consent several other times during their trip overseas for the USO.

Of course, Sen. McConnell reacted to the news shortly after it broke, but it was nothing like you’d expect after seeing his hysterical reaction to the allegations against Moore. In fact, McConnell didn’t ask for Franken to step down, didn’t threaten to remove him from his seat, and didn’t demand Democrats do what they can to remove him from his seat.

No, instead he gave a weak-kneed response and said the Ethics Committee “should review” the allegations against Franken.

Wow.

From Breitbart News:

In a statement, McConnell called the allegations against Franken “credible”, yet did not name Franken by name or call for the senator to resign: “As with all credible allegations of sexual harassment or assault, I believe the Ethics Committee should review the matter. I hope the Democratic Leader will join me on this. Regardless of party, harassment and assault are completely unacceptable—in the workplace or anywhere else.”

How nice. Whose side is this guy on, anyway?

For those unaware, Tweeden said the following occurred:

He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.

I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time.

I walked away. All I could think about was getting to a bathroom as fast as possible to rinse the taste of him out of my mouth.

I felt disgusted and violated.

So to recap, allegations of impropriety that supposedly occurred 40 years ago, but which aren’t back up with any evidence, are worthy of Sen. McConnell working overtime to ensure you don’t ever get seated in the Senate. But actual sexual assault, with photographs to back up the allegations, don’t even get your name mentioned or have anywhere near the reaction from McConnell and others.

Again, do you need any more evidence that the charges against Moore are a witch hunt?
