The widening national “Gropegate” scandal has claimed two more political scalps.

Two Minnesota state legislators, one a Democrat State Senator the other a Republican State Representative have succumbed to bi-partisan calls that they resign after being accused of sexual misconduct inside the state capitol in St. Paul.

The pair announced they will both step aside ending several weeks of demands they leave the capitol:

Two Minnesota lawmakers accused of sexual misconduct have announced plans to resign.

The departure of the pair increases the pressure on Senator Al Franken to step down following a pair of accusations of inappropriate sexual conduct including one that occurred at the Minnesota State Fair while a sitting senator:

In the aftermath of another woman coming forward with allegations against Sen. Al Franken, two progressive groups are now calling for his resignation.

Within hours of Lindsay Menz’s story of an “uncomfortable moment” with Franken at the 2010 Minnesota State Fair, the groups Credo and Indivisible called for the senator to resign immediately.

While the groups may not be household names, they claim to have millions of progressive members – members who, until a few days ago, saw Franken as one of their champions.

Bruno Strozek

Bruno Strozek is the author of occasionally semi-coherent piffle and has been a Writer/Editor at Hot Gas & Sparta Report since July 2016.

By writing an ungodly number of Reader Submissions from April 2016 through June 2016 Strozek essentially brow-beat the Hot Gas/Sparta Report senior editorship into a quivering mass of submission thereby securing his present position.

Strozek, along with his alter-egos the decadent, drug-addled Sixties refugee Uncle Bruno and his intolerably feminist SJW Cousin Brunoetta have been riding the not-yet crested wave of deplorability with posts covering politics, sports, entertainment and zombies.

Although he has fallen far short of his bucket-list goal of writing for such respectable rags as The National Enquirer and The Weekly World News Strozek is grateful for the opportunity to pen his unhinged screeds at Sparta Report and is constantly amazed and delighted at the reception his pieces receive in the cements.
