    Democrat Al Franken will resign from the U.S. Senate on Thursday, Minnesota Public Radio reported, after more than half of his Senate Democratic colleagues urged him to do so in light of sexual misconduct accusations.

    Franken's office said in an email that no final decision had been made and that the senator was still discussing the issue with his family.

    Kihuen Says He Won't Resign Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

    Nevada 4th Congressional District Rep. Ruben Kihuen told ABC News on Tuesday that he won't be resigning his position after sexual misconduct allegations were brought against him last week. Speaking to a reporter in the hallway of a congressional building in Washington, Kihuen stated definitively his intent going forward.

    "I'm not resigning," he said. "I plan on continuing the job that I was elected to do by the people of the 4th Congressional District."

    Kihuen's former finance director detailed the alleged misconduct, which took place during his 2016 Democratic primary campaign, in a Buzzfeed article published Friday. Before today Kihuen hadn't officially stated his intention as members of his own party, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, called for his resignation.

    It would be cool if Franken says he's staying but I'm sure he agreed to leave before all of those women senators went in front of the camera.

    The democrats are throwing Franken under the bus because it's a no loss move, the governor is a big lib and will replace Franken with the lib of his choosing.

    Dems stategy will focus back on the war on women 24/7 now that the Russia crap is falling apart. DNC will select a woman in 2020, probably a black woman so they can throw that into the mix.

    IMHO

    It would be more cool if he says he's changed his mind and he's hopping on board the Trump Train.

    Let's see what the dems moral stance is with Sen Menendez D NJ accused of having sex with under age prostitutes in the Dominican Republc.
    He would be replaced with a republican as Chris Cristie is still governor.

    That is why Establishment Repubs decided to back Roy Moore.Once he is elected,they will crucify him for unsubstantiated allegations.

    Hopefully if he's resigning he breaks into one of his Stuwart Smally routines while he's doing it.

    Franken said he's "planning" on resigning.

    Who's going to be the first democrat to say "see how good we are and those republicans
    have a war on women".

    What a joke of a speech he made. I thought the jackoff was going to keep talking till his term expired in 2020. It was as if he thought someone was going to stop him from resigning.
    He actually thinks he will be missed.

    GO ON YA BUM! :kickedoutsmile:

    That's why the Dems are staying away from this Menendez issue. They don't want to lose that seat.
    Party and power comes before anything else.

    Unless some proof comes forward, the GOP would be stupid to even keep talking about Moore since they have to seat him. If evidence surfaces, he gets booted and the Alabama Governor appoints a new Republican. That's how this needs to play out. But we can't let accusations end people's career, otherwise we'll have this same crap at every election.

    But proof and allegations are two different animals. And with the Dems, there is no high ground since their party is leading the pervert count by a 10:1 margin.

    It's a Set Up. (Hat tip to Beck and Rush.)

    Yesterday, half the Dem Caucus demanded Franken resign. They planned that, they didn't just do it spur of the moment. Next Franken said he'll resign 'in a few weeks'. And he lectured all that he was really The Voice of the Women. BS. They're waiting for Moore to be elected. Then they can claim the Repubs have lost their Morals, Franken can stay on as the Party will now be known to represent women against bully men. Then they'll go after Trump for his "abusing women".

    And, with Hillary out, and Dems seeking to unite as the Women's Party- Michelle Obama will emerge as the Dem Prez Candidate. (Hat tip to Levin's callers for that one..)

    Dems control the Media, and thus the Narrative...

    Gotta admit if the Republicans can seat a pedophile there is no reason a pervert can't stay.
