AZUZ: U.S. Senator Al Franken, a Democrat from Minnesota, announced yesterday he'd be resigning. The 66-year-old was first elected to the Senate in 2008, and he worked as a comedian before that, performing for years on "Saturday Night Live".
But over the past month, he's been accused of behaving inappropriately toward women, both before and during the time he's been in office. And though Franken has spoken out repeatedly against sexual harassment and said some of the accusations against him are false, other lawmakers pressured him to resign after several people came forward to accuse him. He said he'd leave the Senate in the coming weeks.
After Franken's announcement, another one came last night. Representative Trent Franks, a Republican from Arizona, said he'd also resign. The 60-year-old was first elected to the House in 2002, and he worked in the Arizona state legislature before that, promoting laws and programs to protect children.
But the House Ethics Committee was reportedly looking into claims of misconduct by Representative Franks. He said they were related to discussions he'd had that made two women he used to work with uncomfortable. He said he'd leave the House on January 31st.
