Al Franken Officially Resigns From the Senate

Al Franken Officially Resigns From the Senate

He gone.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHgqcHSoqeE

Democrat Minnesota Senator Al Franken submitted his resignation later at 12PM CT to Governor Mark Dayton.

Franken resigned after numerous females accused him of sexual misconduct, including groping and attempts to plant wet kisses on their mouths.

Dayton announced last month that he chose Democrat Lt. Gov. Tina Smith to take over Franken’s seat. She will finish his term and then run for his seat during the special election in November. Smith already has one Republican opponent in the race: Minnesota State Senator Karin Housley.

Minnesota Public Radio wrote that Smith is expected to be sworn in around noon on Wednesday.

Franken announced his decision on December 7 in a speech on the Senate floor after seven females accused him of sexual misconduct. Radio news anchor Leeann Tweeden started the avalanche in November when she showed a photo of Franken groping her breasts as she slept during a USO tour in the Middle East in 2006. She also said that Franken pressured her to practice a kiss for a skit. She said no, but Franken pushed even more to the point that she became uncomfortable and finally said yes in order to get him to leave her alone:

We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.

I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time.

Tweeden’s bravery gave other women courage to come forward. One woman said he groped her butt during a photo-op at the Minnesota State Fair. An Army vet said he cupped her breasts right before they took a photo together during another USO Tour in the Middle East.

Comments

My only thoughts, other than joy, were… “I wonder what he’s running away from?” Certainly something much more damning than a few grasping moments at some starlets boobs.

Don’t worry though America, he can be easily replaced – Minnesota has a deep layer of self-righteous socialist sludge from which to draw from. The Democrat machines rule that state.

I was raised with the motto, if you can’t say something good about somebody, don’t say anything.

“…”

That was easy. Goodbye, Al.

The dark farce of this weirdo’s presence in the Senate is over.
The dark farce of weirdo traitor obama’s presence in the White House is over.

Trump is proving to be America’s knight in shining armor.

Rinos flake and hatch are existing. Now, orin hatch.

Hillary klinton is still considering running in 2020; the democrats are floating the unaccomplished and despised moooooochelle obama as well. (Someone that fat probably does float.)

These are very good trends.

    For what it’s worth, president Trump speaks very highly of Hatch. One thing is sure, you aren’t gonna like his replacement, bank on it.

      His most probable replacement will have one positive aspect – he won’t caucus with the Democrats. “Work” with them, sure. Vote with them, probably. But he won’t give Schumer the vote he needs to become Majority Leader.

The good news is he’s gone.

The bad news is that Minnesota’s “progressive” (i.e. idiot) voters will soon replace him with somebody as bad or worse.

    Franken was a rising star in the democratic party. He can be replaced by someone with the same political leanings, but not the stardom.

    He would have been a vice-presidential candidate in 2020.

Well, I have not overdosed on schadenfreude yet, but I am giddy at the prospect of it actually happening.

My only comment to Al would be:

Won’t be missed.

Good riddance, Al. The product of voter fraud removed by his own arrogance and stupidity.

I confess I’m surprised. I was expecting him to weasel out until he formally retired. I haven’t forgotten he won his first election through fraud followed by brazen fraud when simple fraud wasn’t enough.

The self-described “Giant of the Senate” is gone. Good riddance and don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

“Well ….. bye!”

Are the flies leaving with him? Or will they be drawn to his replacement?

I am relieved. I expected him to weasel out of it.

For those that missed the background, the iconic picture was part of a harassment campaign by Franken after the lady rebuffed his advances. Unable to take “no” for an answer with any grace, he first pestered her, and then subjected her to various kinds of asininities like petty insults, drawing horns on one of her headshots that she was signing for the troops, and taking rude pictures of her in her sleep.

That’s harassment, and it should be unacceptable in the workplace.

Leslie Jones or Joy Reid should run for his vacant seat. Proud, Progressive, POC, woman DEMs. They have what it takes to be elected in Minnesota.

    re: “Proud, Progressive, POC”

    Ya, sure, you betcha! America just dumped one dissatisfying vaudeville leadership team from Kenya, and now they’ll want to hear those sweet lies that Joy Reid have to tell?

    POC? America needs another hyphenated American leader like a sailor needs a shankar. I think we might settle for someone who loves America ONLY and doesn’t want to act on behalf of Asian, European or Muslim led countries…and is PROUD to be an American. That might work…. Can that be found in Minneapolis or St. Paul? Doubtful, IMO.

    I expect Muslim convert Keith Ellison to be stepping away from the herd shortly…perhaps into the path of an oncoming ‘train’.

      I expect him to be made Lt. Gov, then at least VP candidate, if not presidential candidate. Sorry, I’m just not optimistic when it comes to the stupidity of Minnesota. They changed when they put foot baths in MSP airport, IMHO.

It took several rounds of cheating to seat him. His true character is what unseated him. Minnesota politics must be deeply seedy.

good riddance.

A new devil in his place.

meh. There are plenty to replace him. I think I’d rather have a tainted senator in there, someone as stupid as Franken is.

YEAH !!!! It is ALREADY A GREAT New Year !!!

Al Franken’s next stop? Hosting SNL.. yuck

Al Franken’s next stop? Hosting SNL.. yuck

So many tits and asses and so little time!

Good riddance to unfunny rubbish.

He is already not missed.

He’s gone, yes, but he has been granted moral authority by progressive liberals to molest conscious and unconscious women. As Clinton was granted moral authority by feminists to exploit superior position in order to have sexual relations with a subordinate. The so-called “reckoning” is a testimony to female chauvinist ambitions and their male, female, and selective-child victims.
