Al Franken announced today that he is resigning from the United States Senate after several women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct. Franken did insist, however, that some of the allegations against him aren’t true, but that he will step down to be respectful of the women who have accused him.

Franken also took shots at President Donald Trump and Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who each have also faced accusations of sexual assault.

“I am leaving while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office, and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party.”

The latest Franken accuser came forward Wednesday and said that Franken tried to forcibly kiss her in 2006 and told her that it’s his “right as an entertainer.” Franken has denied that allegation.
