Al Franken resigns from U-S Senate

Minnesota Senator Al Franken says he is resigning following several sexual misconduct allegations.

The Democrat apologized to women during a speech from the Senate floor, saying some charges against him are untrue and that he remembers others differently, but that women deserve to be heard and their experiences taken seriously.

Franken noted it is ironic that he is leaving while quote — “a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party.’
