More Than Two Dozen Democratic Senators Call on Franken to Resign

From Politico:

More than a dozen Democratic senators, including the top Senate Democrat, on Wednesday called on Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign in the wake of multiple sexual misconduct allegations against him.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand was the first of Franken’s fellow Senate Democrats to take that step and was quickly followed by more than two dozen others. The first batch of resignation calls came from female senators, followed by a slew of male Democrats and eventually the majority of the 48-member caucus.

Franken plans to make an unspecified announcement on Thursday, according to his office. The state director for his Minnesota colleague, Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar, said in a statement that Klobuchar spoke with Franken directly early Wednesday and offered no further comment beyond pointing to Franken’s planned announcement.

Update:
Al Franken is expected to resign tomorrow. So the Democrats are ousting their known sexual assaulters and the GOP is fully supporting theirs.

A Democratic official who has spoken to Al Franken and key aides says Franken will resign his Minnesota Senate seat on Thursday, the official tells MPR News.

The official spoke to Franken and separately to Franken’s staff. A staff member told the official that Franken had gone to his Washington home to discuss his plans with family.

The Egg Cappuccino

I’m not that squeamish about raw egg yolk so I would give this a try. My wife hates egg yolk with the passion though which means that she’s not allowed anywhere near my breakfasts.

From Food 52 who gives it a try:

The drink is not without context. It’s couched in a Korean tradition from the ’60s and ’70s, drawing inspiration from a popular drink served at dabangs (coffee shops). Round K’s version is only an interpretation of the original drink which was made from instant coffee, a pinch of salt, a raw egg yolk, sesame oil, and pine nuts or walnuts. The loaded drink was intended to energize its drinkers as well as leave them feeling satiated.
