Al Franken is having a bad day

This morning we heard that Democrat Senators Gillibrand and Hirono had called on Al Franken to resign from the U.S. Senate.  Then, the floodgates opened and what feels like half of Congress hopped on the bandwagon.

So far, there are 23 of Franken's colleagues demanding he shuffle off into the sunset - as well as the Chairman of the DNC.

  • Gillibrand
  • Hirono
  • McCaskill
  • Hassan
  • Harris
  • Murray
  • Baldwin
  • Casey
  • Donnelly
  • Brown
  • Stabenow
  • Markey
  • Heitkamp
  • Bennet
  • Durbin
  • Cantwell
  • Feinstein
  • Heinrich
  • Merkley
  • Leahy
  • Wyden
  • Carper

As I said above, the Chairman of the DNC joined the chorus as well....

According to Amanda Terkel, Washington Bureau Chief for the Huffington Post, Franken is planning on making "an announcement" tomorrow.  No one knows precisely what that announcement will be but, as you can imagine, everyone is placing their bets...

More as it develops...
