It looks like sex criminal #AlFranken isn’t going to resign after all

At least four senators are urging Al Franken to reconsider resigning, including two who issued statements calling for the resignation two weeks ago and said they now feel remorse over what they feel was a rush to judgment.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who urged Franken not to step down to begin with — at least not before he went through an Ethics Committee investigation — said the Minnesota senator was railroaded by fellow Democrats.

“What they did to Al was atrocious, the Democrats,” said West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin in an interview for POLITICO’s Off Message podcast to post on Tuesday. Subscribe here.

Franken’s unusual timeline — in his departure announcement he said he’d go “in the coming weeks,” without setting a date — has fed the fleeting hopes that there’s still time to reverse course. However, Tina Smith, Minnesota’s Democratic lieutenant governor, was named last week as his appointed successor.

  1. This mentally ILL dirtbag was clearly NEVER going to resign.. It was stunt to attack President Trump and others whom this poltroon doesn’t like. They need the votes folks and when the GOP messed up an easy win for the seat in AL,, this guy now thinks it’s safe. Lets see if the DemoRat Congress women clam up, or will they follow through.. I’m betting the girls will calm up.. It was a big PR stunt !!
