Franken To Make Announcement Thursday
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Is Senator Al Franken going to resign? He will make an announcement Thursday.
This was his announcement on Twitter: "Senator Franken will be making an announcement tomorrow. More details to come."
This after yet another woman has accused the Minnesota Democrat of sexual misconduct.
The woman says Franken tried to forcibly kiss her in 2006 while she was working as a Congressional aide. Franken has strongly denied the accusation. But after the story surfaced in Politico, several female Democratic senators used their social media accounts to call on Franken to step down.
The Senate Ethics Committee has already started an investigation into the earlier allegations.
Franken is serving a second term after being re-elected in 2014. If he does resign, it’s expected Gov. Dayton would appoint a successor who would hold the office until a special election was held next November.
Check here on the reaction from the female senators.
