Franken to officially resign Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

After a lot of turmoil, Al Franken will officially resign from the United States Senate Tuesday.

In the last two months, several women accused Franken of sexual harassment. 

After apologizing for some claims and saying he remembered others "differently," Franken announced his resignation in December, after being pushed by dozens of his fellow lawmakers to do so. 

There's no word on exactly what time Franken plans to officially resign. 

We do know his successor, Minnesota's Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith, will be sworn in Wednesday.
