Senator Al Franken To Resign From Congress After Six Women Accuse Him Of Sexual Assault

Franken's Hollywood ties to Obama, Hillary Clinton and other high profile Democrats, enabled him to receive their backing and assistance, which resulted in him winning the local Minnesota election, where he was elected to the Senate. However, Franken, like his fellow Hollywood cohort, Harvey Weinstein, has disgraced himself.

Franken was quick to explain that he was stepping down not because he thought he had done something wrong, but because he had determined that Minnesotans deserved a senator who wasn't distracted by mounting allegations and a looming Senate Ethics Committee investigation. "Minnesotans deserve a senator who can focus with all her energy on addressing the challenges they face every day," Franken said in a speech that lasted just over 10 minutes, as his wife and adult children looked down from the Senate gallery...
