Al Franken has just announced his resignation from Congress due sexual misconduct. It's a pretty noticeable blow to the Democratic party, as a growing contingent was trying to prop Franken as a possible candidate for the 2020 election. This makes the second Democrat to resign his post for sexual misconduct in less than a week ... John Conyers resigned for similar reasons just a two days ago.
Do you think these resignations were made on moral grounds? Were they done to help stymie further criticism of the Democratic party? Or is it a strategic effort to cast the party in a more favorable light to Republicans, many of whom are coming out in support of Roy Moore despite the more heinous allegations he's facing?
