SIO201: Did Al Franken Get Railroaded? with Jamie Lombardi

Recently, a New Yorker article made a case for Al Franken and why he didn’t get the due process he deserved. It points to some inconsistencies in Franken’s first accuser’s story, and explains some misconceptions about the USO tour and the skits that he wrote. But does the evidence justify the central claim – that he was railroaded and shouldn’t have had to resign? Joining me to discuss this question, as well as the wider #metoo implications, is Jamie Lombardi! Jamie also introduces herself and gives some of her background and we talk about a ‘free speech in academia’ talk that she is giving in the fall.
