Six Democratic US senators call on Al Franken to resign
Six US Democratic senators have called on Senator Al Franken to resign amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
In separate statements released almost simultaneously on Wednesday, the Democratic lawmakers said the Minnesota senator must step down.
Mr Franken, a former Saturday Night Live comedian, has been accused of groping and sexually harassing seven women, including a US military veteran.
Mr Franken has apologised to his accusers, but disputes some claims.
