You talked about all of the past scandals, you talked about the Monica Lewinsky situation, which was clearly an improper relationship. But we’re talking about children. We’re talking about multiple allegations of the abuse of children, and the fact that it’s even a question I think speaks to the position that the Republican party finds it’s in, morally.” She added, “This should not be a question, and the fact that people are struggling with whether or not they should continue to support Roy Moore for reasons of party, politics, power and tribe is incredibly disturbing.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Bernie Sanders, (I-VT) dodged questions about allegations of sexual misconduct by former President Bill Clinton and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN). On Clinton, Sanders said, “I don’t think at this moment our goal is to look back 20 or 30 years. Our goal is to go forward. And our goal is to understand we have a real crisis in this country today—within the political world, within the corporate world, within the media world—where women are being harassed every single day. Our job is to change that culture.” On Franken, he added, “I think that’s a decision for Al Franken and the people of the state of Minnesota. My understanding is that Al is a very popular senator. People in Minnesota think that he is doing a good job, and his political future will rest with the people of Minnesota.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
