From MPR News:
Minnesota Democrat Al Franken, facing fresh allegations of sexual misconduct and vanishing support from fellow Democrats, appears to be on the brink of resigningfrom the Senate.
A Democratic official who spoke to Franken and key aides told MPR News Franken will resign Thursday. He’s expected to make a speech from the Senate floor at 10:45 a.m. MPR News will carry live coverage on air and online.
Wow, a CNN story I can actually enjoy for a change. Ta Ta Al. The senate is getting an improvement today. Enough of hypocritical D’s that lecture tolerance, acceptance and women’s rights while exerting their power over them. Time to go.

During Franken’s speech, he made several digs at Republicans and praised his progressive buddies in the Senate.
