Al Franken resignsSen. Al Franken, D-Minn., says he will be resigning from the Senate amid multiple accusations of sexual misconduct.

"I am proud that during my time in the Senate I have used my power to be a champion of women and that I have earned a reputation as someone that respects the women I work alongside every day," he said on the Senate floor. "I know there has been a very different picture of me painted in the last few weeks, but I know who I really am."

He said that serving in the Senate "has been the great honor of my life" and that "I know in my heart that nothing I have done as a senator — nothing — has brought dishonor on this institution. And I am confident that the Ethics Committee would agree.

"Nevertheless, today I am announcing that in the coming weeks, I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate."
