Dem Rep Quigley: If Allegations Against Franken Are True, He Should Resign – If I Were Conyers, ‘I Would Leave’
On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Representative Mike Quigley (D-IL) stated that if the allegations against Senator Al Franken (D-MN) and Representative John Conyers (D-MI) are true, “they should both go.” He also stated that he would resign if he was in Conyers’ position.
Host Jim Acosta asked Quigley, “We’ve seen the accusations facing Senator Franken over in the Senate, and now we have these allegations against Democratic Congressman John Conyers. Do you believe he should resign?”
Quigley answered, “Here’s how I look at it. If these allegations are true, they should both go. They get their due process, but it’s a deeply disturbing that my colleague, Mr. Conyers, used his own resources within his office to make this some sort of settlement instead of going through the official process. This concerns me greatly. I think the congressman needs to look at himself. And frankly, if I was in his place, I would leave.”
