Minnesota Public Radio: Sen. Al Franken will resign
A Democratic official who has spoken to Al Franken and key aides says Franken will resign his Minnesota Senate seat on Thursday, the official tells MPR News.
The official spoke to Franken and separately to Franken’s staff. A staff member told the official that Franken had gone to his Washington home to discuss his plans with family.
MPR News agreed to withhold the official’s name because the official wanted to give Franken the chance to talk about his decision in his own words.
Franken faced a cascade of calls Wednesday from fellow Democrats and other political allies to leave office in response to multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
Franken’s office said in a tweet that “no final decision had been made.” Full article here.beemerphill, TheNutcracker, Pastiche like thisIgnorance is the foundation of tyranny.
