FILE-- Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill, in Washington, Oct. 18, 2017. A growing national outcry over sexual harassment reached the Senate on Nov. 16, when a radio newscaster accused Franken of kissing and groping her without consent during a 2006 U.S.O. tour of the Middle East before he took public office. Franken almost immediately released an apology to the newscaster, Leeann Tweeden. (Tom Brenner/The New York Times)

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) at a hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, Oct. 18, 2017. Many voters in Minnesota were not ready to demand Franken’s resignation after he became the latest public figure to be accused of mistreating women, even after aiming the same call at two state legislators accused of sexual harassment earlier this month.
