Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) Will Resign Today Amid Multiple Sexual Harassment Allegations … Franken Says “Not Accurate.”

 

ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST, FRANKEN IS GONE NO MATTER WHAT HE TWEETED

According to MRC News, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) will resign today following multiple allegations of sexual harassment and assault. Franken claims that there has been no final decision. However, today at a planned press conference it is all but certain that he will announce his resignation from the U.S. Senate. More than 30 Democrat senators  have called for Franken to step down. Female Democrats Sens. Kamala Harris (CA), Claire McCaskill (MO), Patty Murray (WA), Mazie Hirono (HA), Tammy Baldwin (WI.) and Maggie Hassan (NH) each quickly followed Gillibrand (NY) in saying Franken should resign. Democrats are ready to eat one of their own as it is being filled with another Democrat and gives them two years to win back a seat that Franken would never have with these many scandals. His departure would require Gov. Mark Dayton, a Democrat, to name a successor who would fill the final two years of Franken’s term. The Senate seat would be up for reelection in 2018.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand On Senator Al Franken: ‘Enough Is Enough’

A Democratic official who has spoken to Al Franken and key aides says Franken will resign his Minnesota Senate seat on Thursday, the official tells MPR News.

The official spoke to Franken and separately to Franken’s staff. A staff member told the official that Franken had gone to his Washington home to discuss his plans with family.

MPR News agreed to withhold the official’s name because the official wanted to give Franken the chance to talk about his decision in his own words.

Franken faced a cascade of calls Wednesday from fellow Democrats and other political allies to leave office in response to multiple allegations of sexual harassment.

After MPR News reported the planned resignation, a tweet from Franken’s official account said it was “not accurate.”

“No final decision has been made and the senator is still talking with his family,” the tweet read.
