Needham: ‘Al Franken Was a Mean-Spirited Bulldog Who Had No Purpose in ihe United States Senate’
NEEDHAM: "Yes, I think it looks like Roy Moore will win and I think it looks they will have a Senate ethics investigation if he comes there. I think Roy Moore should welcome that. He will be a more effective legislator if these allegations can be investigated, if the truth can come out. If that’s not something that hangs over him and the entire Senate can be more effective at legislating rather than every time he walked down the hall, you have to talk about this, that or the other end, and instead can point to an investigation. It relates to Al Franken. And the other thing that didn’t come out in this conversation about Al Franken is that Al Franken had absolutely no interest in being a serious legislator. He introduced 141 pieces of legislation amendments, not a single one in his entire career, including time with the Democrat president, was ever signed into law. Al Franken was a mean-spirited bulldog who had no purpose in the United States Senate if he couldn’t be a mean-spirited bulldog, which he couldn’t do with these allegations out there. He wasn’t interested in being a legislator before. He isn’t interested in being a legislator now. I think that’s part of why he stepped down. And he stepped down without even having the grace to say that he’s sorry or apologize for any of us."
