Franken resigns from Senate
amid new claims of sexual
misconduct, backlash from Dems

Fox News, by Barnini Chakraborty

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/7/2017 12:27:32 PM

DEVELOPING: Calling it “the worst day of his political life,” Sen. Al Franken said Thursday he will resign from the U.S. Senate following a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against him. Minnesota Public Radio reported late Wednesday he would resign, though Franken’s office pushed back saying it wasn’t a done deal yet. It will be up to Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton to appoint a successor. (Snip) Multiple sources reported that the likely candidate could be Democratic Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, a close ally of Franken. Any successor, if he steps down, would serve until a special election is held in

Comments:
That headline is misleading. Franken said he would ´resign in the coming weeks.´ He did not give a date, nor did he say when that will occur. He will still be there to vote and cause mischief until he actually resigns. Who knows, he could change his mind couldn´t he?

Hopefully the odious Franken has bloviated from the US Senate floor for the last time.

Remarkably horrid speech. All about him...how great he is, how he has done nothing wrong, etc. Paul Wellstone is so proud!

And yes, he did not resign. Said he "will be resigning..."

A jerk, a creep, an embarrassment.

Rush thinks this "resignation" is contingent on whether Roy Moore wins and is seated. He thinks that if Roy Moore takes a senate seat then Frankenstein will change his mind and stay on.

I find all of this laughable, that the party of The Clintons, with all of their sexual scandals and shrillary´s vicious handling of Bill´s accusers, is suddenly deciding that such behavior is no longer acceptable.

They are not doing this because they are repenting of past indiscretions and turning over a new leaf. They are up to something that will ultimately bring them more power and benefits if successful.

I noted that in the list list of things Franken had faith in that faith in God was notably absent. Perhaps that is one reason he finds himself embroiled in these circumstances.

He grew up in Minnesota then left for decades until he decided to carpetbag a Senate seat. Election fraud got him in office first time around.

The man is a piece of filth who disgraced the Senate. Rumor has it that he´s being paid off to resign (and yes, he´s staying till Jan to get another year on the pension.) Having resigned but not admitting guilt, he will be free to pursue entertainment and other political opportunities as none of the women accusers have the resources to bring charges against him.

The payoffs to help him resign but not deny his harassment likely came from big lefties like Soros, Tom Steyer, or Tides (Teresa Heinz)

Franken should be gelded and put in a dirty stable. Having said what he did about Trump and Roy Moore, it should be done without anesthesia.

My guess is that if Roy Moore gets elected and seated in the Senate Franken will not resign due to Moore´s election as the reason. He will piously declare that what he did was nothing compared to Moore so need to resign.

OP, #21 are correct and clarification much appreciated. Rush Limbaugh discussed the verbiage of Franken’s “resignation” that allows him to stay long enough to vote on some key issues and it also allows time for him to possibly, possibly, decide he is not going to resign.

RE #5: I think Rush is wrong on this one. I think Franken’s resignation is to add impetus to NOT seating Judge Moore (should he win), but more importantly setting up grounds to impeach President Trump for sexual mis-conduct.

Franken is a shallow minded failure as a Senator, yet his speech was one of self-aggrandizement and unearned praise. I guess no one else, including fellow Senators, could find nothing Franken has done worthy of praise.

Al, do America a favor and go quietly into the oblivion you rightfully earned.

I agree with poster #5, if Moore ends up in the Senate Franken will not resign. There is a difference between the allegations being faced by Franken and Moore, Franken’s problem stems from from occurances that happened when he was an elected Senator, and Moore’s problems stem from occurances that took place about fourty years ago. Chances are that Moore will be elected in Alabama, a Bible Belt State that does believe In “redemption”. Franken is just too arrogant to simply resign.

In investigating Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia to steal the 2016 election, the media have found no story too small, no detail too minor to cover. Each leak that can be even remotely tied to the narrative of Russia harming America with the Trump campaign’s help is exploited and hyped for round-the-clock attention.

The Justice Department defended a decision to release nearly 400 of FBI agent Peter Strzok’s anti-Trump text messages Thursday, claiming his former position on Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigative team made the information relevant. The defense comes after Democrat members of the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter to the DOJ demanding they explain the “unusual” decision to release Strzok’s messages. DOJ Public Affairs Director Sarah Flores fired back, saying the department had committed no wrongdoing and was sure to allow Congress to view the texts before releasing them publicly, CNN reported Thursday. “When the initial inquiries came from committees

A professor at Boston University has proclaimed Christmas carol favorite “Jingle Bells” to be a “racist song” and is urging people to shun the jaunty tune. Kyna Hamill, a theater history professor at Boston University, recently told the Boston Globe that the venerable Christmas song has a “secret” racist past that has been “systematically” hidden from Americans as they celebrate the Christmas season. “The history of the song has remained hidden behind its local and season affection,” Hamill told the paper.

Conventional wisdom is that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is asleep at the wheel – from recusing himself unnecessarily from the Trump-Russia collusion investigation to doing nothing about the politicization and weaponization of the Department of Justice. He also gave free rein to his deputy A.G., Rod Rosenstein, who is in turn allowing Special Counsel Robert Mueller unlimited time, money, and jurisdiction to investigate President Trump´s entire life. Last summer, Trump expressed disappointment in Sessions, calling him "beleaguered," wondering why Sessions wasn´t looking into Hillary Clinton´s emails and true election chicanery. Rudy Giuliani was floated as a possible replacement. Was Trump truly

News, the plan originally started with just a small group of women but gradually grew as other women wished to express solidarity. “So all of the female actresses and attendees, or most of them at least, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest,” said ceremony host Jackie Oshry on The Morning Breath radio show. “They’re all going to be wearing black, obviously to protest the injustices

Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) is proposing a new motto for the city that takes aim at President Trump. Emanuel, who served as chief of staff under former President Barack Obama, told Stephen Colbert that he has declared Chicago a “Trump-free zone” and joked that its new motto is “A city he’ll never sleep in.” “We don’t want him,” Emanuel said on “The Late Show” Wednesday night. Emanuel told Colbert that multiple Chicago initiatives, such as public scholarships available to recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration program and environmental regulations, do not line up with the

Scandal: For 18 months, the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest it should be looking in the mirror. The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a rare and illuminating window into just how rabidly partisan putatively nonpartisan law enforcement officials can be. In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot," a "loathsome human," an "enormous do-che," and said "this man cannot be president." When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton. In one

Spirits were high inside the House chamber on Thursday, November 16, when, in the early afternoon, the gavel fell and a measure to rewrite the American tax code passed on a partisan tally of 227 to 205. As the deciding votes were cast—recorded in green on the black digital scoreboard suspended above the floor—the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, threw his head back and slammed his hands together. Soon he was engulfed in a sea of dark suits, every Republican lawmaker wanting to slap him on the shoulder and be a part of his moment. Ryan was the man of

Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin has requested UN Peacekeeping Forces to the City of Chicago to cut down on violence in the Windy City. Boykin says peacekeeping forces are needed to fight the “quiet genocide” in the streets of Chicago. The joys of liberalism: 603 people have been shot and killed in Chicago so far this year. 3,454 people have been shot. There have been 652 homicides in Chicago so far this year. CBS Chicago reported: Some politicians in the past have recommended deploying the National Guard to help Chicago quell gun violence, but Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin went

First, as the week began, came news of an attempted Islamic terrorist attack at New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal…and next came everything we needed to know about the Mainstream News Media, which has once again, or finally become a punch line and a laughingstock. We need to exclude Fox News from that leftist cabal. Only Fox News still gives it mostly straight up, mostly fair and balanced. That same evening, visiting family when the Network News just came on, my son said, “Dad, which do you want first, the anti-cop story, the anti-Israel story, or the anti-Trump story?” That was ABC,

Democrats´ shocking victory in the Alabama Senate special election undoubtedly has raised their potential list of seats they might win. If they can win in the Deep South, they can win anywhere. High on the list of reach targets is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is up for re-election in 2018. Hillary Clinton did quite well in Texas, only losing by 9 points (better than she did in Iowa) — as compared to nearly 28 points in Alabama. What´s more, Democrats have a solid candidate in the form of Rep. Beto O´Rourke from El Paso. It is true, of course,
