Franken has apologized for the encounters, which occurred before he became a senator.  At the Capitol, New York Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand said the behavior is simply not acceptable. Gillibrand is on a growing list of Democratic senators urging Franken to step down. The list includes most of the women in the Senate Democratic caucus and DNC Chairman Tom Perez.
