Democratic Women in Senate Call on Al Franken to Resign

The Democratic senator is among a growing list of politicians, entertainers and news media figures facing a wide range of allegations involving sexual misdeeds. Hours after, seven women in the U.S. Senate began calling for Franken to resign. Al Franken, who has faced repeated calls today from colleagues to resign from his post. He's repeatedly promised to "cooperate completely" with any investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee into his past behavior.

The Minnesota Democrat's office said he would make an announcement Thursday, but did not specify the subject.

"I agree the time has come for Senator Franken to step aside", Mr. "While he's entitled to an Ethics Committee hearing, I believe he should step aside to let someone else serve". It seems to me now that we're at a point that it would be best for the country and what would be best for his constituents is for Sen. Al Franken has surfaced, this one from a former Democratic congressional aide who told a national politics news website that he tried to force a kiss on her after a recording of his radio show in 2006, three years before he took office.

On Twitter, Sen. Claire McCaskill wrote simply: "Al Franken should resign". To achieve lasting change, we will need to fight this everywhere on behalf of everyone by insisting on accountability and working to bring more women into leadership in each industry to fundamentally shift the culture.

Evacuations ordered in Bel Air as wildfire burns near the 405 freeway
The Getty Center and the nearby Skirball Center are both on the west side of the freeway, and did not appear to be threatened. The Southbound lanes of the 405 Freeway are now open through the Sepulveda pass, but the Northbound lanes are closed.

If Franken resigns, Dayton would appoint someone to fill the seat.

Asked about Franken, Senate GOP Whip John Cornyn of Texas said he would "leave it up to [Democrats] to deal with members of their own party".

Franken, in a statement, said the idea he would claim such conduct as a right as an entertainer was "preposterous". He said he did not speak to Senator Franken but had his staff inform Senator Franken's staff. Multiple women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct with them when they were teens, including one who said Moore molested her when she was 14. Maggie Hassan (D - New Hampshire) and Patty Murray (D - Washington) also said the Minnesota senator should step aside.

Franken describe behavior that can not be tolerated.
