Sen. Tom Carper recently released a statement on Sen. Al Franken, D-Minnesota.

“Sexual harassment is always unacceptable, and the behavior attributed to Sen. Al Franken a decade ago is deeply troubling and disappointing. The Senate Ethics Committee should look into this matter, and I understand Sen. Franken welcomes this investigation,” said Carper.

“Assertions of deplorable behavior by President Trump have been made by many women over many years, and I deeply regret those allegations will never be scrutinized the way they should be,” said Carper.
