Washington, D.C. - Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) released the following statement today related to allegations against Senator Al Franken (D-MN):

“Any and all allegations of sexual harassment or sexual assault deserve our attention and must be taken very seriously. The American people put their trust in elected officials, which makes allegations against lawmakers especially concerning. Standing up for victims and against harassment and assault is not a partisan issue and I support investigations into any claims against elected officials.”
