Franken urged to reverse his resignation



Of course he’s been urged to reverse his resignation. Al Franken (and Senator Manchin) is of the Bill Clinton school. They share the same generational and political disposition. One could see it in Franken’s non-apology apology. He doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong. Oh, and then, Trump!



So lame. So predictable.

Thing is, let him stay on. It’s not like the Governor is going to appoint anyone better than Al Franken.

You know, even though Franken is a clueless statist, as he has sadly shown us this so many times, I kind of wanted to like him on some level as he is an outed Deadhead. I am one also. But no. I can’t like the guy. He’s just another example of what is so wrong with this country on the political level.

“What they did to Al was atrocious, the Democrats,” said West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin in an interview for POLITICO’s Off Message podcast to post on Tuesday. Subscribe here.

Franken’s unusual timeline — in his departure announcement he said he’d go “in the coming weeks,” without setting a date — has fed the fleeting hopes that there’s still time to reverse course. However, Tina Smith, Minnesota’s Democratic lieutenant governor, was named last week as his appointed successor.

People familiar with Franken’s plans said he has not changed his mind and intends to formally resign in early January. He praised the selection of Smith and has begun working with her on the transition.
