Minnesota Republican will run for Al Franken's Senate seat

Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, said that Sen. "I think he should submit himself, which he has willingly done and offered to do, and go through this complete process of an extensive ethics review".

"Let me be clear, I may be resigning my seat but I am not giving up my voice", Franken said in a Senate floor speech earlier this month, announcing his resignation. That's hypocrisy at the highest level I've ever seen in my life.

"I think that Franken should go through the process of what he's asked for - due process", he said. "The Ethics committee should have been allowed to investigate and make its recommendation". "It really did. And I've said this", Manchin said.

The shocking allegations against the 66-year-old Minnesota senator prompted several Democrats to call on him to step down.

Other Senators are, for the moment, sticking by their guns.

Twitter suspends accounts of Britain First leaders under new abuse rules
Monitors at the San Francisco company will weigh hateful imagery in the same way they do graphic violence and adult content. That means users may not use such imagery in live video or profile and header images.

Franken experienced harsh criticism a month ago after various ladies blamed him for improperly touching them. The rhetoric of "justice" will be employed, while simultaneously vowing to hunt down real "anti-woman" offenders (i.e., Republicans).

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton (D) has appointed Lt. Gov. Tina Smith (D) to replace Franken. Moore, who was accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl, later lost the Alabama election to Democrat Doug Jones, although he has thus far refused to concede the race. Instead, they watched as Moore was defeated, and the expectation that Moore would be a handy albatross to hang on the neck of President Donald Trump evaporated before their eyes.

Seven more women have come forward with similar claims about Franken.

Until Wednesday afternoon, Franken had not given a specific date for when he will resign.
