Al Franken resigned on Tuesday with a whimper, not a bang
Ed. Some people—I’m one of them—were surprised the hyper-arrogant Al Franken actually did resign on January 2nd.
And as Powerline’s Scott Johnson writes:
Back home, complications ensue. The president of the Minnesota Senate has become lieutenant governor by operation of law. That is Republican Michelle Fischbach. Senator Fischbach declines to resign her seat in the Senate — it’s not clear whether she has lost it by operation of law — where Republicans hold a one-vote majority and the Democratic minority leader declines to accede to a special session of the legislature limited to the purpose of electing a Democratic senator president in order to serve out the rest of Smith’s term. Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson has issued an opinion holding that Fischbach cannot serve both in the legislative and executive branches, though the issue is not entirely clear.
