Sen. Elizabeth Warren is "enormously disappointed" in Sen. Al Franken and the other "famous men" who have been accused of sexual misconduct, but she wouldn't answer Stephen Colbert when he asked if she thought Franken should resign.

Why it matters: Two prominent progressive groups in Minnesota have called on Franken to step down after another woman accused him of harassment. Though other lawmakers aren't saying the same, all of Congress is considering ways to hold their members accountable for their actions and many men are facing the price of being a predator.
