Both of Illinois’s Democratic U.S. Senators are part of the growing chorus of Democrats calling on Senator Al Franken to resign. Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth both say it’s time for Franken to step aside.
Franken has been hit with multiple allegations that he kissed or groped women against their will, both before and after being elected to the Senate. He is scheduled to make an announcement about his future on Thursday.
