A Democratic official, who reportedly spoke with Sen. Al Franken and his aides, told Minnesota Public Radio on Wednesday that the senator would resign on Thursday. Franken's spokesperson responded to the report, calling it "not accurate," and said the Minnesota Democrat is "still talking with his family." This follows an avalanche of Democratic lawmakers, led by female senators, calling on Franken to resign on Wednesday following new allegations of sexual misconduct. If Franken leaves office, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, also a Democrat, will be required to name his successor. A special election to replace the interim senator would be held in November 2018.
