After weeks of murmurs on Capitol Hill about Sen. Al Franken’s future in politics amid allegations of sexual misconduct, several senators have made their message loud and clear— Franken must go.

Politico reported Wednesday morning that a former congressional aide says Franken tried to forcibly kiss her after a taping of his radio show in 2006, adding to the six existing allegations against the current Minnesota senator. 

Although Franken denied this new allegation, many Democratic senators took to Twitter to call for his resignation. And as with many other recent efforts to call out inappropriate male behavior, the women led the way. 

These women were joined by many of their Democratic male colleagues in the Senate in calling for Franken to step down.

Although these Democratic senators have worked with Franken to craft policy since his election in 2009, they believe his female accusers and think that his alleged behavior is unacceptable.

Under pressure from his colleagues, Franken will make an announcement on Thursday.
