Democrats line up to call for Al Franken's resignation; senator plans 'announcement' Thursday


More than 20 Democratic senators and the party's chief urged Sen. Al Franken to resign Wednesday following the latest sexual misconduct allegation against him.

After the resignation calls, Franken's office said the senator would make an "announcement" on Thursday. It didn't elaborate.

Earlier Wednesday, Politico reported that a former Democratic congressional aide is accusing the Minnesota Democrat of forcibly trying to kiss her 11 years ago, adding to a string of allegations against him.

In a statement before the calls for his resignation started, Franken denied the latest accusation against him.



I find it interesting, there are no accusations against sitting Republicans
one would think their would be women line up to accuses Republicans, to run them out of town.
