Franken resigns over sexual misconduct allegations

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said on Thursday that he is resigning his Senate seat over allegations of groping and sexual misconduct.

The decision caps off a chaotic 24 hours on Capitol Hill as new accusations surfaced and Democrats turned on Franken saying it was time for him to step down.

Franken was widely expected to resign on Thursday, though his staff remained tightlipped stressing that no decision had been made.
