Cruz: Franken Allegations 'Serious,' Moore Should Get Seat

(Fox News)

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Thursday that the allegations against Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., are "serious," and that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, a Republican, should not be expelled from the Senate should he win the upcoming election.

Fox News host Neil Cavuto asked Cruz in an interview if Moore "should be thrown out" of the Senate if he wins due to the allegations against him.

"Of course not," Cruz said. "And I think we've got to respect the will of the voters. I think the reaction would be — I think it'd be completely unacceptable. If the voters of Alabama choose to elect him, for some Washington politicians to say, 'We don't care what the voters say,' I think that would be a mistake. This is an issue that the voters have in front of them, and they'll make a decision. I think we need to respect the will of the voters."

Cavuto also asked about Franken, who also has been accused of sexual misconduct.

"You know what? These allegations are serious and they keep coming up, every day more and more and more allegations," Cruz said. "And I will say, there's a rich irony watching all of the Democrats backpedaling and trying to justify, now, their colleague, who you've got — I think the count is five women who allege groping. That's a serious, serious problem and I think it's something that we're going to see debated quite a bit more."
