Saturday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” University of Minnesota Law Professor Richard Painter questioned Sen. Al Franken’s (D-MN) resignation, saying there was something “suspicious” and that the senator should have been allowed due process.
“We need due process, we need to find out what happened, we need to find out the Roger Stone connection, the Fox connection,” Painter told host Joy Reid. “There are a lot of things that are very suspicious about what happened with Al Franken. And I don’t think the party bosses should be throwing out a senator. I think it’s proper to handle these type of allegations through an investigation where we find out the facts.”
