Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Indiana, broke Indiana senators' silence Wednesday on sexual misconduct allegations against Sen. Al Franken, D-Minnesota, stating in a release that his behavior and conduct are unacceptable.
"I believe there is more work to be done to protect victims of sexual harassment and to reform the system of filing and settling harassment claims in Congress," Donnelly said in a release from his press office. "I support reforms to protect victims, increase transparency and ensure that taxpayers do not have to pay for settlements made by members of Congress."
