According to Minnesota Public Radio, Franken will resign tomorrow:
A Democratic official who has spoken to Al Franken and key aides says Franken will resign his Minnesota Senate seat on Thursday, the official tells MPR News.
The official spoke to Franken and separately to Franken’s staff. A staff member told the official that Franken had gone to his Washington home to discuss his plans with family.
MPR News agreed to withhold the official’s name because the official wanted to give Franken the chance to talk about his decision in his own words.
Franken faced a cascade of calls Wednesday from fellow Democrats and other political allies to leave office in response to multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
Not surprised. Tons of Democrats are tossing him under the bus in order to get at Moore and Trump. Good luck, idiot.
UPDATE: Chuck Schumer said Franken should resign too. The lovely and brilliant Dana Perino said it’s likely he’ll resign tonight given how many people are coming out against him…
UPDATE!! The Gropinator is saying the decision hasn’t been made yet:
Senator Franken is talking with his family at this time and plans to make an announcement in D.C. tomorrow. Any reports of a final decision are inaccurate.— U.S. Senator Al Franken (@SenFranken) December 6, 2017
Uhhh, that’s kinda dumb. You made the decision to make an announcement but have no idea what the announcement is? Yeah right. He just wanted to try to quiet people down. It didn’t work.
