Collins and King join chorus calling for Al Franken's resignation

Several male senators - Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) - have also called for the senatorial colleague to resign as well. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Kamala Harris of California, Patty Murray of Washington, Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire all called for Franken to resign.

In the wake of allegations of sexual harassment and midconduct levied against Sen.

The chorus of calls for Franken to step down comes just a day after Democratic Rep. John Conyers of MI, the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, announced that he was resigning after revelations that he had been accused of sexual harassment against staff members.

The Minnesota Democrat is facing a Senate Ethics Committee investigation into previous claims by several other women that he groped or sought to forcibly kiss them.

"As has been reported, he will be making an announcement tomorrow morning", Klobuchar state director Ben Hill said in statement.

"I agree with my colleagues who have stepped forward today and called on Senator Franken to resign".

The former Democratic congressional aide told Politico that following a taping of Franken's radio show in 2006, he got in her face when her boss left the room and she had to elude his advances.

"He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me". We are now at a crossroads in American culture. So, I have spent a lot of time reflecting on Senator Franken's behavior. He said he did not speak to Senator Franken but had his staff inform Senator Franken's staff.

"I believe it is best for Senator Franken to resign", she wrote on Twitter. Franken released a statement categorically denying the accusation. Kemplin said Franken cupped her breast as they posed for a photo.

After the first report, there were allegations that Franken grabbed women's buttocks as he took photos with them.
