Stephanie Kemplin, a U.S. Army veteran who accused Sen. Al Franken of groping her during a photo-op, said she was appalled by Franken’s refusal to own up to his behavior.
The Democrat from Minnesota announced Thursday that he would be resigning from the Senate over sexual harassment allegations, but he never apologized to the women who accused him. Franken also took time to call out President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore over their own alleged sexual misconduct.
Kemplin said during an MSNBC interview Thursday that she did not necessarily feel that justice was served by Franken announcing his resignation.
“I have to say that I am so sad and appalled at his lack of response and him owning up to what he did,” Kemplin said. “I feel that he just keeps passing the buck and making it out to be… that we took his behavior the wrong way ,or we misconstrued something, or just flat-out lied about what happened to us.”
“Justice to me would be him owning up to what he did and him to stop trying to pass the buck to individuals who possibly committed the same things, possibly more heinous, than what he’s done,” she concluded.
