The Hill is reporting tonight that Senator Al Franken (DFL-MN) will resign his Senate seat on Thursday:

A source close to Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) on Wednesday confirmed the senator will resign Thursday amid mounting allegations of sexual misconduct, Minnesota Public Radio reports.

A Democratic Party official who said they spoke to Franken ahead of the senator’s planned Thursday press conference told the station that Franken plans to announce his resignation at the event.

UPDATE: hold the phone, Team Franken says “no decision made”.

Minnesota Public Radio report:

After MPR News reported the planned resignation, a tweet from Franken’s official account said it was “not accurate.”

“No final decision has been made and the senator is still talking with his family,” the tweet read.

Bruno Strozek

Bruno Strozek is the author of occasionally semi-coherent piffle and has been a Writer/Editor at Hot Gas & Sparta Report since July 2016.

By writing an ungodly number of Reader Submissions from April 2016 through June 2016 Strozek essentially brow-beat the Hot Gas/Sparta Report senior editorship into a quivering mass of submission thereby securing his present position.

Strozek, along with his alter-egos the decadent, drug-addled Sixties refugee Uncle Bruno and his intolerably feminist SJW Cousin Brunoetta have been riding the not-yet crested wave of deplorability with posts covering politics, sports, entertainment and zombies.

Although he has fallen far short of his bucket-list goal of writing for such respectable rags as The National Enquirer and The Weekly World News Strozek is grateful for the opportunity to pen his unhinged screeds at Sparta Report and is constantly amazed and delighted at the reception his pieces receive in the cements.
