Guest: Chris Karpowitz, PhD, Associate Professor of Political Science, Brigham Young University; Grant Madsen, PhD, Assistant Professor of History, Brigham Young University It’s been quite a couple of weeks for Congress. Alabama’s upset election this week took one seat from the slim majority Republicans hold in the US Senate. That race was marred by allegations of sexual abuse against the Republican candidate Roy Moore. The week prior, sexual harassment and assault allegations led to the resignation of three sitting members of Congress: Democratic Senators Al Franken and John Conyers and Republican House member Trent Franks. We also saw several women renew the allegations of sexual misconduct against President Trump first made during the 2016 election and Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand calling for Trump’s resignation. President Trump has denied the accusations.
