U.S. Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King have joined the growing list of senators calling on Sen. Al Franken to resign. Al Franken to resign amid sexual harassment allegations.

Sen. Al Franken's (D., Minn.) office said he will make an announcement on Thursday as he faces mounting calls to step down because of accusations of sexual harassment. He's repeatedly promised to "cooperate completely" with any investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee into his past behavior.

"I am shocked and appalled by Senator Franken's behavior", Murray said. Several Democratic men in the Senate also called on Franken to resign. "While he's entitled to an Ethics Committee hearing, I believe he should step aside to let someone else serve". "This morning I spoke with Sen".

"I expect that Senator Franken will announce his resignation tomorrow", Sen.

On Wednesday, Politico published another accusation against Franken from a woman who said he tried to forcibly kiss her back in 2006.

"He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me".

Franken's office tweeted the following, without elaboration.

During October, the company announced its new delivery system that promises to keep pies hotter. Pizza Hut's delivery drivers will be at least 21 years old and trained in local alcohol laws.

"A big part of the national conversation we're having on sexual assault involves listening carefully and with respect to woman".

Several other allegations have followed, including a woman who says that Franken put his hand on her buttocks during a picture pose at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010. Tom Udall of New Mexico, Tom Carper of Delaware, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Gary Peters of MI and Sherrod Brown also called for Franken to step down. Sen.

The woman, who was not identified, told Politico that Franken pursued her after her boss had left and she was collecting her belongings. "Franken, Rep. Conyers and others", Jones said.

Franken says in his statement that the idea he'd claim such behavior as a right as an entertainer is "preposterous".

If you've been keeping track, this is the seventh woman who's come forward with a sexual misconduct allegation against Franken in less than a month. Kemplin said Franken cupped her breast as they posed for a photo.

Sens. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Patty Murray of Washington, Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, Kamala Harris of California, Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, Sen.

Franken describe behavior that can not be tolerated.
