Al Franken’s Rape Joke

Posted by Steve Markowitz on August 26, 2012

Last week the Republican Senatorial candidate from Missouri, Todd Akin, was appropriately castigated for his off-the-wall comment concerning rape victims.  The Republican establishment pulled their support of Akin and he is been made an outcast by the Party.

Apparently the Democrats do not have the same concern about distasteful rape comments when it comes from their own.  As reported in the weeklystandard.com, New York magazine reported in 1995 that Democrat Al Franken created as a writer for the TV show Saturday Night Live: “And, ‘I give the pills to Lesley Stahl. Then, when Lesley’s passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her.’ Or,  ‘That’s why you never see Lesley until February.’  Or,  ‘When she passes out, I put her in various positions and take pictures of her.’”

Since making the outrageous statements on rape and Lesley Stahl, Franken has been made Democrat Senator from Minnesota.  Last week he was campaigning with VP Joe Biden for Obama’s reelection.  More hope and change from the Obama Administration.
