Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., called on Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., to resign Tuesday following allegations of sexual misconduct from six different women.
"From what I know, he should resign," Moulton told MSNBC, giving the same response regarding Rep. Ruben Kihuen, D-Nev., who faces accusations from a female staffer who quit his 2016 campaign after he repeatedly made unwanted sexual advances toward her.
Moulton joins top Democrats like Rep. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., and Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, in censuring Franken for his inappropriate behavior.
Moulton also slammed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for her stewardship of the Democratic caucus in the wake of multiple women coming forward to describe incidents of sexual harassment or assault at the hands of members of the party.
"She didn't respect the women who have brought forward these allegations, claimed we didn't know who they are when in fact we do know who they are," he continued, specifically referring to Pelosi's recent appearance on "Meet the Press" when she addressed claims leveled at newly retired Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., calling him "an icon."
Moulton implored Republican House leadership to expedite consideration of the ME TOO Congress Act and efforts to amend the Congressional Accountability Act of 1995 on the chamber's floor so they can be passed as soon as possible.
"The reason why I was one of the first co-sponsors of two bills, actually, to change this process, to end this insane system where victims can be paid off and members of Congress not held accountable, is because we have to take accountability and we actually should be leading on this issue as members of Congress," Moulton said.
"We should be setting the tone for the country and saying, 'This is so serious, we're going to set an example for how it's handled.' And instead, we've all learned, that we're about a century behind," he added.
