Photos and testimony of Al Franken engaged in sexual misconduct surfaced, and despite attempting to clear his name of the evidence, it was too much to bear. Multiple women accused the Senator of misconduct and after a lot of procrastination and heedlessly defending his name, Al Franken has finally resigned from the floor as a Democratic Senator.
Twincities is reporting that Franken kept to his word, when he announced that he would be resigning following the incontrovertible evidence revealing him to have engaged in sexual misconduct.

While Minnesota may be down a Senator, Governor Mark Dayton will be appointing someone new to take Franken’s place over the next couple of days.
Franken didn’t go out without taking jabs at Trump and Moore, attempting to deflect some criticisms by turning the sexual misconduct allegations levied against him into a partisan issue.
Nevertheless, he claims that he will continue to fight for what he believes in, stating…
“I may be resigning my seat, but I am not giving up my voice, […] But this decision is not about me. It’s about the people of Minnesota,” he said. “And it’s become clear that I can’t both pursue the Ethics Committee process and, at the same time, remain an effective senator for them.”
In the ultimate act of maintaining his male feminist-ally stewardship, Franken suggested to the Governor to replace him with a woman, saying…
“Minnesotans deserve a Senator who can focus with all her energy on addressing the challenges they face every day,”
Franken joins many other men in powerful positions who have been outed for alleged sexual misconduct, including Congressman John Conyers, who has been implored by his fellow Democrats to also resign.
The dominoes in Hollywood, the media industry, and politics continue to fall over. The takedown of individuals (majority of whom are SJWs, Leftists, Democrats and Liberals) for sexual misconduct has almost turned into an identical situation of Goldberg tearing through the WCW locker room of jobbers. And just like Goldberg used to say: “Who’s next?”
