Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., responded to liberal billionaire George Soros’ frustration with the part she played in the resignation of Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., claiming “that’s on him.”
Gillibrand was the first Democratic senator to publicly urge Franken to step down from his post after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct. Although Franken denied the allegations, he eventually resigned early this year.
The article goes on to state the following:
“If standing up for women who have been wronged makes George Soros mad, that’s on him,” Gillibrand said in a statement to the Huffington Post. “But I won’t hesitate to always do what I think is right. For nearly a year, we have seen countless acts of courage as women and men have spoken hard truths about sexual assault and sexual harassment and demanded accountability.”
“I stand with them in this new watershed moment of important change in our society on what we deem as acceptable,” she added. “It is clear that we must put our morals and the valuing of women ahead of party loyalty. When someone does something wrong, you have to speak up and be counted, whether it’s President Trump, or a Democratic colleague.”
The statement came after Soros said he is uncertain who he will back in 2020, but ruled out endorsing Gillibrand. He blamed her for causing Franken to resign as a way to “improve her chances” at becoming president should she announce a campaign.
