I have mixed feelings about the resignation. On one hand, what he did was wrong and he should be held accountable for his actions. Unlike the Cheetos colored blowhard sitting in The White House and the child rapist running for Senate in Alabama, Mr. Franken seems to be genuinely regretful for his actions, but there is also proof that cannot be refuted.
But at the same time, leaving an open seat in the Senate, especially considering with the questionable bills that the Republicans are trying to push through, it makes me a little nervous. With one less dissenting vote, the Republicans who are voting for party over country may have an easier time getting their bills through.
Only time will tell what Mr. Franken’s future will be and if the bills sitting in the House and Senate actually get signed into law. I just hope that there are still enough rational voices in Washington D.C. to continue to counteract the blind loyalty of those on the right.
