Kingston Criticizes Warren Over Refusal to Join Colleagues Calling for Franken Resignation
For Immediate Release:
GOP businessman and U.S. Senate candidate John Kingston sharply criticized Sen. Elizabeth Warren Wednesday for her continued refusal to call on her Democratic colleague Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota to resign.
At least five female Democratic senators called on Franken to resign Wednesday in light of more allegations of sexual misconduct, including Sens. Kristen Gillibrand (D-New York), Maggie Hassen (D-New Hampshire), Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri), Patty Murray (D-Washington) and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii).
“Sen. Warren’s refusal to join her female Democratic colleagues in calling for Franken’s resignation proves there are no limits to her hypocrisy,” Kingston said.
“For weeks, Sen. Warren has refused to condemn elected officials in Washington and on Beacon Hill who are embroiled in sexual misconduct scandals simply because they are Democrats,” Kingston continued.
“Sen. Warren is putting her commitment to putting politics and party before what is right on display for every Massachusetts voter to see,” Kingston said.
Warren’s latest refusal to stand against elected officials in her own party embroiled in sexual misconduct scandals comes just days after Kingston’s campaign launched a digital ad buy on a graphic highlighting Sen. Warren’s continued silence.
As of mid-day Wednesday the graphic had over 700 likes and 400 shares on Kingston’s Facebook page.
