MURPHY STATEMENT ON SENATOR FRANKEN

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) released the following statement on Wednesday urging Senator Al Franken to step down:

"The increasing number of women coming forward suggests a pattern of repeated harassment and unacceptable behavior that is impossible to ignore. Senator Franken has denied some of these allegations and has the right to continue to seek a process through the Ethics Committee, but I believe the best course of action for him right now is to step down, as I expect he will do tomorrow."
