Al Franken Makes Announcement While Under Pressure to Resign Over Allegations

"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 assaults 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", Franken said.

Many, including some of Franken's fellow senators, expect the comedian-turned-lawmaker to resign, despite a Wednesday evening tweet from Franken's official account that said "any reports of a final decision are inaccurate". Kristen Gillibrand, called on Franken to resign after the new allegations surfaced. "It was also quick; he knew exactly what he was doing", wrote Dupuy, who said, "I don't let my husband touch me like that in public because I believe it diminishes me as a professional woman".

Menz accused Franken of groping her while posing for a photo together at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010.

Several women who worked with Franken sign a statement supporting him. "I expected for him to come and share the truth, share what he had experienced, you know, give us some sort of resolve to the situation". "We were finally beginning to listen to women about the ways in which men's actions affected them". "Which, I don't know what other way to take groping".

Leeann Tweeden posted this photo online that she says was taken while she was asleep on a flight back from a 2006 USO trip.

"I think his resignation was the best for the integrity of the office, because there is no integrity if we're not holding everyone accountable. I was shocked. I was upset".

Asked what should happen if Moore is elected to the Senate, Dupuy said, "the Republicans need to deal with the Republicans". The woman, who wasn't identified, says that after her boss left and she was collecting her belongings, Franken tried to kiss her, saying: "It's my right as an entertainer".

A couple of things are going on here: 1) Democrats obviously want to clear the decks to get a clear line of fire on Roy Moore and Donald Trump, and Franken realizes he can't stand in the way; 2) In the current environment in the Democratic party it is hard to question the credibility of any accusers, so Franken would have just dug himself in a deeper hole by trying to defend himself (this is a dynamic that could lead to injustices); 3) Franken is pretty clearly not telling the truth in his denials, and that would have become even more obvious over time. "I want to thank their male colleagues who have joined them", she said.
