Democratic lawmaker Sen. Al Franken announced Thursday that he would resign from office amid allegations of sexual misconduct from multiple women. "It was also quick; he knew exactly what he was doing", she added.
CNN reports that a second woman is claiming Franken acted inappropriately.
"At the very same time that we are asking Franken to resign from senate - we are allowing an accused child molester to run for senate".
"I am proud that during my time in the Senate I have used my power to be a champion of women", he said.
The woman says Franken pursued her after her boss had left and she was collecting her belongings.
If Franken resigns, Minnesota will hold a special election to fill his vacant seat during the upcoming midterm elections.
Franken's colleagues initially called for an ethics investigation into his behavior, but as more allegations against him came to light, they demanded his resignation from the Senate. "We were finally beginning to listen to women about the ways in which men's actions affect them", he said. He had apologized before, saying in a news conference just a few days ago, "I know that I've let a lot of people down".

Insurance institute ranks vehicle safety
In line with Cars.com's long-standing ethics policy, editors and reviewers don't accept gifts or free trips from automakers. Rather than design elements, Lund said headlights should be treated as safety features to help avoid a crash at night.
Despite the backlash, Kemplin said she has no regrets.
"I'm not celebrating his resignation", she said, "but we can't tolerate hypocrisy".
"I felt like he was going to actually talk about the accusations against him", Menz said. "And that I have earned a reputation as someone who respects the women I work alongside every day. Then he squeezed. At least twice" while the two posed for a photo at the party.
Noting seven other women subsequently came forward with allegations of Franken's misconduct, Tweeden said it is "between those women and God, who's lying". "I said, 'No, I don't know that I'll ever feel good about it'".
Menz said she chose to come forward after she learned of Tweeden's story and said she hopes sharing her story will help change the culture.
Regardless of Tweeden's past career moves (which were her own choices made with her own agency), the fact remains that she did not want to kiss Franken and she definitely did not want him to take a picture with him groping her breasts. "It said, 'You don't matter-and I do.' He wanted to cop a feel and he demonstrated he didn't need my permission".
Franken further argued that there is "irony" in his resignation as President Donald Trump sits in the Oval Office and Roy Moore runs for Senate in Alabama.
