Senator Al Franken, D-MN, and his wife Franni Bryson (R) arrive at the US Capitol on Thursday in Washington, DC. Franken announced that he will be resigning in the coming weeks. Franken — a former comedian who made his name on the popular late-night comedy show "Saturday Night Live" before turning to politics — has acknowledged misconduct with at least one accuser. The 66-year-old Minnesota lawmaker apologized last month and vowed to work to regain the trust of his colleagues and voters.— AFP
