Hinson Denounces Mike Franken

Marion, IA – Congresswoman Ashley Hinson denounced Mike Franken following allegations of assault against one of his former staffers, and called on State Senator Liz Mathis to do the same. Mathis was scheduled to appear with Admiral Mike Franken this afternoon, and rather than address the allegations, cited a “scheduling conflict.”

“Sexual assault is always unacceptable and the allegations against Admiral Mike Franken are deeply troubling. A “scheduling conflict” is no substitute for denouncing sexual assault allegations and State Senator Liz Mathis must disavow Mike Franken immediately. – Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
