He didn't resign. He said he "will resign in the coming weeks." My bet is that if Roy Moore wins in AL, Franken will withdraw that statement claiming that he won't go unless Roy Moore goes too. The Dems urged Franken to resign so they could claim the moral high ground by claiming he "did the right thing" while Trump and Roy Moore did not do the same based on the allegations against them. Political football at it's finest. The circus in D.C has become unbelievable.

Political football while the taxpayers foot the bill.

Where is the outrage over spending millions of taxpayer dollars on "settlements"?

The people who are constantly "outraged" over everything probably don't pay any taxes, so it's not their money so why be upset?

I don't think that plays well for the dems. My guess, he stays either way. If a Dem wins, there's no election focus and he can simply decide he's not running for reelection, if GOP wins, they claim moral high ground. Gambit here is Moore wins and then resigns to a GOP appointee.

In the end, politicians win. Always.

I'm fine with that gambit as long as the GOP appointee isn't Luther Strange, who gave a donation to the Dem in that race.

There is a huge difference between Moore and Franken. Moore is facing unproven allegations. Franken has admitted guilt.

Flake did. I didn't know Strange did too.
