Sen. Franken Officially Leaves Office


Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) officially resigned from his Senate seat on Tuesday Jan. 2, nearly a month after he had announced his plans to step down from Congress amid numerous sexual misconduct allegations.

Minnesota Lt. Gov. Tina Smith (D), is set to replace Franken in the Senate. She is to be sworn in on Wednesday. A special election will be held in November to permanently fill his seat.

Franken, served eight years as senator, and was forced to resign after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct.

“Some of the allegations against me are simply not true, others I remember very differently,” Franken said on the Senate floor when announcing his resignation in early December.
