Democratic Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota apologized over the allegations that he has groped multiple women, but refused to resign.
During a press conference, Franken also refused to say what it would take to get him to resign:
I’m not going to get into that or speculate on that. I’m certainly not going to talk to anybody else. This is what I have been trying to do. I have been trying to take responsibility by apologizing, and by apologizing to the people I let down.
I’m going to work to regain their trust. I am going to be accountable. We are going to cooperate completely with the ethics investigation.
This has been a shock and it has been extremely humbling. I am embarrassed. I feel ashamed. What I’m going to do is I’m going to start my job and go back to work. I am going to work as hard as I can for the people of Minnesota and start that right now. Thank you all.
