Amid sexual assault allegations, a small group of politicians are calling for President Donald Trump to resign. Sen. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) is now a part of that group including Sens. Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker and Jeff Merkley.
On Wednesday, Casey told ThinkProgress that “President Trump documented history of sexual harassment and assault should have been disqualifying during last year’s election. I support a congressional investigation in order to hold him accountable for his actions.”
In light of the uptick in sexual harassment allegations including those against Sen. Al Franken and U.S Rep John Conyers leading to their resignations, an increasing number of politicians are calling for action.
Casey has been more outspoken politically since Trump’s election, especially on Twitter.
Some Republicans took issue with Casey’s statement including Lou Barletta saying “The people of Pennsylvania elected President Trump. The election is over! Senator Casey should spend more time fighting for Pennsylvania’s workers, securing our borders, giving working class families a tax break and fixing our healthcare.”
