When politicians like Kirsten Gillibrand demanded that Senator Franken resign after accusations were made against him, they made a mistake.
Rushing Senator Franken out the door in this unceremonious fashion, prevented the creation of a formalized process for issues of this sort, which anyone accused would have to go through, and act according to the findings, instead of blowing it all off. An example is Jim Jordan, who in the absence of such a process, refuses to take responsibility for abetting crimes against students.
Having such a formal process in place would also prevent the loss of lawmakers who were specifically set up for accusation of sexual misconduct as Al Franken appears to have been. The Fascists are using the #MeToo movement as a weapon against political opponents, as easily as shooting fish in a barrel.
