  • Franken says he'll leave Congress in 'few weeks'

Franken announced earlier this month that he meant to resign from the Senate after multiple women accused him of groping them without their consent. "I think if he had chose to stay, he would have found a lot of support". I will live by whatever decision and I will walk away thinking about this opportunity I've had while I was here. That's hypocrisy at the highest level I've ever seen in my life. "I look forward to working with her on ensuring a speedy and seamless transition", Franken said recently in a statement.

Following his announcement that he would resign from Congress, two Democratic senators said that Franken should not have stepped down before the Senate Ethics Committee had completed its investigation into the Minnesota Democrat.

"I'm Karin Housley and I'm running for U.S. Senate", she announces.

Other Senators are, for the moment, sticking by their guns. I would watch closely for signs that that it will give him a pass.

However, keep in mind that the Senate Ethics Committee will take up Franken next year. "I will continue to stand up for the things I believe in as a citizen and as an activist". The rhetoric of "justice" will be employed, while simultaneously vowing to hunt down real "anti-woman" offenders (i.e., Republicans).

Gov. Mark Dayton's choice to replace Franken, Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, is set to be sworn in January 3. Expect her to gain a speaker slot at the 2020 Democratic National Convention.
