Al Franken Resigned In Big Announcement About Sexual Misconduct Allegations



After reports of at least seven separate claims of harassment made against him, Sen. Al Franken announced he will resign from Congress. Franken, the junior senator from Minnesota, said that the stepping down from office will be completed "in the coming weeks." During the announcement, which was delivered on the Senate floor, Sen. Franken pointed out what he called the "irony" about his resignation.

"I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of the sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party. But this decision is not about me. It’s about the people of Minnesota," Franken said, in a clear allusion to President Donald Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

With a vacancy in one of Minnesota's two U.S. Senate seats now imminent, the state's governor will now be prompted to select an interim senator to serve in Franken's place.

More to come.
