Senator Al Franken of Minnesota announced today that he would resign from the Senate after a growing number of women accused the Senator of sexual harassment. Fighting for his political life, Franken lost his case when his support among Democrats crumbled.

“Today I am announcing that in the coming weeks I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate,” Mr. Franken said. “This decision is not about me. It is about the people of Minnesota.”

 

In his resignation speech, Franken took a well-deserved shot at the President:

“I of all people am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving while 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,” Mr. Franken said.
