Almost two years removed from the U.S. Senate, it appears Al Franken may try to revive his comedy career.

In a Twitter message posted on Thursday, Franken wrote that Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., they discuss the “decline of bipartisanship” — in his speech in the Senate, after the house voted to indict President Trump — was a convicted serial killer and sex offender Jeffrey Dahmer met in talking about “dinner party etiquette.”

Franks, 68, a former “Saturday Night Live” writer and actor was a Democrat who represented Minnesota in the Senate from 2009 to 2018. He came groping about the allegations at the height of the #MeToo movement, after the high-profile claims against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, NBC News star, Matt Lauer, and others.

The longtime comedian was accused of acts of sexual misconduct, including claims of Leeann Tweeden, who said he groped her and kissed her against her will during a USO tour in 2006. A photo popped up of the Franks, smiling, touching, as he appeared in the Breasts Tweeden, while she slept. Tweeden finally adopted in Swiss francs of the public apology.

A fellow Democrat, sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in New York, was a vocal critic of the Franks, but later on he, he was entitled said that a “path to salvation.”

Francs tweet said, according to McConnell, the Senate and the house Democrats were in an “impasse” over the question of whether the house would be transferred, his indictment of Trump on the GOP-controlled Senate for a constitutional officer study.

“Let us be clear: The house, the vote yesterday was not said to be a neutral judgment,” McConnell. “It was the predetermined end of a partisan crusade.”

Speaking in the Senate, McConnell said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, had insisted, “on the basis of the unanimous cross-party precedent, of the 100 senators before the start of President Clinton ‘s trial” about logistics.

Dahmer, the “Milwaukee Cannibal”, was sentenced for the murder of 17 men between 1978 and 1991, often lure them to his home, where he strangled her to death, carried out sex acts on their corpses, and stored — and allegedly ate their dismembered body parts. He was killed in prison by an inmate in 1994.
