Sen. Al Franken Offers Unapologetic Resignation

Minnesota senator Al Franken issued a statement announcing he will resign. Following his speech on the Senate chamber floor, two things are clear. Franken plans to resign his seat by the end of the year, but he did not apologize for allegations of sexual misconduct. However, he noted that he will leave office while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office. Franken expressed irony over his circumstances and those of President Donald Trump, who also faces accusations of sexual misconduct before his time in office. But Sen. Franken added he made this decision for the people of Minnesota, as he could not effectively represent them while participating in an Ethics Committee investigation.
