Half Of Voters Think Al Franken Should Resign From The Senate

Franken was first accused of sexual misconduct last week, when radio broadcaster and model Leann Tweeden said that, in 2006, he had forcibly kissed her and groped her while she was sleeping.

Among Democrats, 34 percent said he should remain in office, 14 percent said he should resign and 46 percent said he should wait for the results of the investigation. He says an ethics investigation is proper.

When asked if Franken will be effective if he stays in office, 32 percent of those polled said he would be, while 37 percent said he would not be effective and 32 percent said they were not sure.

Gov. Mark Dayton says he reached out to Sen.

The woman, Lindsay Menz, tweeted that Senator Franken grabbed her inappropriately while taking a photo at the Minnesota State Fair.

Many members of Franken's own party believe he should resign. 'I feel badly that Ms. Menz came away from our interaction feeling disrespected'.

She said as she posed with Franken, he "pulled me in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear", Menz said.

'It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek, ' she said then. Both men affirmed that to CNN.

Menz responded: 'Dude - Al Franken TOTALLY molested me!

He has apologized to Tweeden, and she has accepted the apology, but a handful of Democrats have called for him to resign. Franken said he would welcome it.

Franken was elected to the Senate in 2008.
