Oregon's senators join call for Franken's resignation

Oregon's senators join call for Franken's resignation

Maine's US senators and 23 Democratic senators called on Sen.

Sen. Al Franken's office has announced that the Democratic senator will make an announcement Thursday amid calls for his resignation.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) listens to the testimony of Attorney General Jeff Sessions during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on "Oversight of the U.S. Department of Justice" on Capital Hill in Washington, DC, on October 18, 2017.

Franken's support in the Senate crumbled after another woman said he forcibly tried to kiss her in 2006, bringing to seven the number of women accusing him of sexual impropriety.

Paris Saint Germain, who take on Bayern Munich on Tuesday, are the only other team in the competition yet to drop a point. But it's not always about winning or losing - it's about playing the same way we always do and giving our all.

"The latest allegation adds to a very disturbing list of allegations against Senator Franken".

If Franken resigns, Dayton would appoint someone to fill the seat.

"The pervasiveness of sexual harassment and the experience women face every day across America within the existing power structure of society has finally come out of the shadows". None of it is ok and none of it should be tolerated. "We need to draw a line in the sand and say none of it is OK, none of it is acceptable and we, as elected leaders, should absolutely be held to a higher standard".

The exception to the evacuation order was the Bel Air Crest housing development, which was not threatened, Garcetti said. But by early Tuesday afternoon, the eastern boundary of the evacuation area had been expanded to the Haynes Canyon area.

The allegations against Franken began in mid-November when Los Angeles radio anchor Leeann Tweeden accused him of forcibly kissing her during a 2006 USO tour. "While he's entitled to an Ethics Committee hearing, I believe he should step aside to let someone else serve".

Rhode Island's senators issued statements Wednesday. But that can not excuse his behavior and his mistreatment of women. But this moment of reckoning about our friends and colleagues who have been accused of sexual misconduct is necessary, and it is painful. The woman was in her 20s at the time. It should have. Members of Congress, members of the Senate should not be treated differently than people in this country. "The way we treat women in our country has been abysmal in nearly every way".

In politics, of course, the problem of sexual harassment and sexual assault is not limited to any one party. Interestingly, not so many Republicans have parroted their Democratic colleagues.

"I know that I am going to have to be much more conscious in these circumstances - much more careful, much more sensitive", Franken said during a press conference last week. After that initial account, several other women came forward to say Franken inappropriately touched them. I applaud the women who have come forward against Roy Moore.
