Al Franken resignation will be effective January 2nd


A spokesperson for Sen. Al Franken said he will step down on Jan. 2

Franken announced earlier this month that he would resign from the Senate in the face of sexual harassment allegations. But he did not announce a date for when he would officially leave the chamber.

Franken said earlier Wednesday that he would deliver a series of speeches on the Senate floor before he leaves the chamber.

Would you have stepped down if you were Al Franken? Was he improperly convicted in the court of public opinion for things he's accused of doing long before he was a politician?
