Al Franken: US senator resigns after harassment charges

Democratic US Senator Al Franken resigns after accusations of sexual harassment. He will take step in coming weeks, said Franken. Previously, he had repeatedly apologized to several women who accused him of inappropriate behavior. So he touched her without her consent and tried to kiss her.

This was worst day of his political life, said senator from state of Minnesota. Some of accusations against him are not true, ors he remembered differently than women. But "women deserve to be heard and taken seriously in ir experiences," said Franken. He announced that he would like to continue to speak politically as an activist.

On Wednesday, new accusations against Franconia were made loud. Thus pressure on him also rose in his own party. More than 30 of 48 Democratic and independent senators called on him to resign. The actress and musician Leeann Tweeden had accused francs in November of having come too close to her before a joint appearance in front of soldiers in Afghanistan. There is also a photo that shows how he holds his hands on her breasts while she is asleep.

Frank said that his resignation did not lack a certain irony, but in White House someone who bragged on tape with sexual assault. He alluded to earlier statements by Donald Trumps. The latter had said that as a celebrity, women could be allowed to do anything and take m into step. The statement is evidenced by a video from year 2005 that Washington Post had published at end of presidential campaign.

Two days ago, senior MP in US Congress, Democrat John Conyers, also resigned after accusations of sexual harassment. The Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore is also accused of abusing several women in 1970s as minors.

After revelations about Hollywood manager Harvey Weinstein, numerous accusations against powerful men from media and entertainment industries as well as from politics have become known in United States.

Frank was 2008 actor and writer before his entry into Senate. He is a sharp critic of Trump government.
