“We as elected leaders should absolutely be held to a higher standard, not a lower standard, and we should fundamentally be valuing women,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said at a news conference, in urging Franken’s ouster — on the heels of Democratic Rep. John Conyers Jr. (Mich.) resigning amid his own sexual harassment scandal.

Here is how some top cartoonists are rendering their own judgment of Franken:
