Another ‘sex pest’ to resign
– US Senator Al Franken, facing calls from within his own Democratic Party to resign following claims of sexual misconduct against him, was set to directly address the issue yesterday, with reports saying he would quit.
Franken – a former comedian who made his name on the popular late-night comedy show Saturday Night Live – has acknowledged misconduct with at least one accuser.
The 66-year-old Minnesota lawmaker apologised last month. But six other women now reportedly came forward to accuse Franken. – AFP
