Democratic senators called for Sen. Al Franken to resign on Wednesday, in the wake of a series of allegations of sexual misconduct. Franken lost the support of his Democratic colleagues and faced new pressures to resign over what a fellow senator said was a “clear pattern” of abuse. Another woman has emerged, saying he forcibly tried to kiss her in 2006, bringing to seven the number of women accusing him of sexual impropriety. More than a half dozen female Democratic senators and some men are calling for his resignation.
