UPDATE: Al Franken has announced that he will resign from the Senate in the next several weeks. Big League Politics first broke the Al Franken scandal on our Twitter account:

Minnesota Public Radio reported Wednesday that Sen. Alan S. “Al” Franken (D.-Minn.) intends to resign in the wake of six women accusing him of inappropriate behavior.

A Democratic official who has spoken to Al Franken and key aides says Franken will resign his Minnesota Senate seat on Thursday, the official tells MPR News.

The official spoke to Franken and separately to Franken’s staff. A staff member told the official that Franken had gone to his Washington home to discuss his plans with family.

MPR News agreed to withhold the official’s name because the official wanted to give Franken the chance to talk about his decision in his own words.
