From Mazie K. Hirono of Hawaii On Al Franken

Thursday, December 07, 2017

We have been in touch with each other. It’s been difficult because I consider Al a friend. I’ve sat with him in two committees, but that doesn’t excuse his behavior. We’re at the point where I think that there can be a cultural change in terms of how women are perceived and treated in this country. This kind of bad behavior has been tolerated and ignored for far too long, but not today.
