Another ‘sex pest’ to re­sign

The Citizen (KZN) - - WORLD - Wash­ing­ton

– 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
