Democratic Sen. Al Franken said Thursday that he would resign amid a series of sexual misconduct allegations. Though, you may have noticed that wasn’t a hard-line acknowledgment of guilt.
During his announcement, he slipped in a dig aimed at President Donald Trump and Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Roy Moore.
“I, of all people, am aware that there is some irony in the fact that I am leaving, while a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office and a man who has repeatedly preyed on young girls campaigns for the Senate with the full support of his party,” Franken said.
Both Trump and Moore have denied any wrongdoing.
