    at this time is that Minnesota has a Democrat Governor who appoints a temporary replacement. End of story.

    Of course Al Franken tried to bring Trump into the conversation and at the same time castigated Roy Moore over his accusers.

    Al Franken is a little man and a creep. An absolute perverted cokehead.

    I don't think he deserved the right to postulate on the floor of the Senate.

    He would appoint a temp only until 2018, when a special election is going to be held for that seat.

    And then, the person elected in 2018 would only be there long enough to finish out Franken's term.

    Yeah, sure. Franken was tired of all the perks of being a Senator. Yeah, that's it.

    If Minnesota had a GOP Governor Franken would still be in the senate. Most likely would have retired at the end of his present term. Perks have nothing to do with this.

    Al Frankengroper is a dumb liberal crackpot who loathes about 75% of Americans and Minnesotans should feel ashamed for ever electing him in the first place.

    Hearing Franken spin his little resignation speech has been the only time he has made me laugh.

    Very few of those perks go away after retirement.

    If the Minnesota governor really wanted to mess with peoples heads. He would appoint Al Franken to replace departing senator Al Franken.
