Al Franken says he'll resign "some time in the next couple of weeks."

Stating that he finds it ironic he's resigning over these allegations against him "while a man who has admitted to sexual assault on tape and repeatedly preyed on young girls sits in the Oval Office" Franken went on to say that he didn't think he could serve the people of Minnesota while also dealing with the investigative process for the allegations.

Franken said that he's done nothing while in office to dishonor himself or the Senate, and hopes that the women who worked for him on The Hill who "may be disappointed in me today" will not lose faith in the work they've done.

Basically a long speech in which he went on the attack as often as possible and made as little mention of any personal responsibility as possible.

Video of the speech is here

a reply to: xuenchen Care to show some evidence of that? I have heard this before but no proof of this has ever come up. Also if you guys think Al going down was it, the damn just broke. I am glad he made his decision. And I hope to see him back to what he does best.

Republicans nearly always get the sticky end of the wicket. In 2008, Al Franken, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Minnesota, trailed his Republican opponent by 215 votes out of 2.9 million cast. After working a protracted recount and a legal battle over disputed absentee ballots and ballots said to be counted twice, he was abruptly declared the “winner” by 312 votes. A box of Democratic ballots helpfully turned up in the trunk of a car.

Don't know why he was smiling and chuckling under his breath during what should be a pretty serious situation. Is he on Valium or something? Or is he just that #ing full of it?

Good riddance, one less creature in the swamp.

that's how 65% of the country feels about trump, but his sexual assaults are so loved by the right, that it got him elected president. Roy Moore's molestation of teen girls qualifies him for the senate to the point that the GOP is putting millions into his campaign.......but, who cares!!....the wealthy and the trump family, are getting their tax cuts......one other thing....for all you molesters, and kid touchers....COME TO ALABAMA!!!.....as long as you are against abortion, you can rape and molest any woman or girl you want!!!

Why does political party have any bearing in dealing with predators?
