Rosie O'Donnell Shames Franken's Accuser, Defends Him on Twitter

"I know there's been a very different picture painted of me over the last few weeks, but I know who I really am", Franken said in his speech.

"It was also quick; he knew exactly what he was doing", Dupuy wrote. And she says Franken told her: "It's my right as an entertainer". But in responding to their claims, I also wanted to be respectful of that broader conversation, because all women deserve to be heard, and their experiences taken seriously.

"People have asked me, "Do you feel relieved" [now that he has resigned]", she said.

That accuser, who spoke to Politico under the condition of anonymity, said Franken pursued her after her boss had left and she was collecting her things. However, when Franken concluded his address today, there were several observers who criticized him for not being more apologetic to his victims or more modest about his personal record.

Franken continued: "I am proud that, during my time in the Senate, I have used my power to be a champion for women - and that I have earned a reputation as someone who respects the women I work alongside every day". "It showed his character, showed how he felt about the situation".

A woman came forward to CNN to say Franken, as a senator, grabbed her buttocks while taking a photo at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010.

Rep. John Conyers, D-Michigan, resigns, becoming the first Capitol Hill politician to lose his job amid a wave of sexual misconduct allegations in workplaces.

"As Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said yesterday, "...what message do we send to our sons and daughters when we accept gradations of crossing the line?

Sen. Al Franken listens during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill, Sept. 20, 2017 in Washington.

A Senate Ethics panel announces it has opened a preliminary inquiry into Franken.
