A flood of female senators are calling for Minnesota Democratic Sen. "We should not have to be explaining the gradations between sexual assault, harassment and unwelcome groping".

"I'm shocked and appalled by Sen".

Pressure has been mounting on Franken to resign from office as the number of women accusing the lawmaker of groping them grows. "I am confident he will make the right decision".

"I want to hear what they say and I think this society is finally willing to address this awful problem", Mr.

"Today, I am calling on my colleague Al Franken to step aside".

Perez tweeted: "Sen. Al Franken should step down". "It is the right thing to do given this series of serious allegations".

"Sen. Al Franken should step down", he wrote.

In a statement, Leahy said: "Senator Franken's situation has become untenable". Although details were not forthcoming, the consensus was that he would resign.

However, he felt that the best thing for him, and the federation as a whole now was to " see someone new in the job ". Head coach Bruce Arena stepped down following the loss, leaving the team now without a man in charge.


The senator largely has been silent in public in recent weeks.

Franken strongly denies the accusations.

The latest report of sexual misconduct came in a Politico story Wednesday.

The calls for Franken's resignation followed new allegations on Wednesday from a woman who claims Franken forcibly kissed her in 2006. She said she ducked to avoid his lips, and that Mr. Franken told her: "It's my right as an entertainer".

Franken has apologized for most of the incidents and has said he would cooperate with a Senate ethics probe into his behavior. "And I agree the time has come for Senator Franken to step aside", wrote Brown, who also said he the Senate Ethics Committee should continue to investigate Franken.

The pressure only increased after Tuesday, when former Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., resigned after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct. There have been Democrats and Republicans accused of misconduct, and I have no doubt that there will be more because Congress is not immune to this scourge. He did not immediately react to the Wednesday allegations.

Franken's support among his fellow Democrats is collapsing as a host of female Democratic senators called upon him to quit.

So, yeah, a ton of Democrats have asked for Franken to resign. Then that seat, as well as the one Klobuchar holds, would be on the November 2018 ballot.
