  • Al Franken, staying for life.
  • Al says he'll resign in the next few weeks. Why the next few weeks I ask? He's actually waiting for all the dust to settle and quietly resume business as usual. I'm betting he never leaves, in the next few weeks at all, until he's voted out of office. His apology was no apology at all, just a bashing of President Trump and Roy Moore. One should understand, when a politician says something, he actually means just the opposite. Try asking a politician a question, you never get a direct answer. I know because our worthless Senator for Ct , Chris Murphy stood before me once and I asked a series of questions. All I got was, "check my web site". He doesn't have the balls to respond to my face.

    Guys, your opinion.

  • Even if he does leave, the Gov. will appoint another liberal to the vacancy to avoid an election. Same with Conyers - he'll probably be replaced with another Dem. I doubt it makes much difference to the party whether either is there or not - they'll have another reliable vote either way. And now they can try to reclaim the moral high ground by asserting they have taken out their own trash. Sorry, but as long as ole "I would never grab a woman by her cigar holder" Slick Willie is around, we will keep reminding them that they are hypocrites.

  • He ain't staying, Al, the Pelosi led dems have made him their poster boy now -can't use the black guy, that'd be racism, ya know. I don't now hat the 'within the next few weeks' comment was all about, but he will be gone. He will now go into rehab for being 'forced' to assault women because he is just too gross, obnoxious, and ugly to get women on his own normally in the real world. I always thought he was gay anyway. He was never funny and one skit on SNL with his old partner Tom Davis on live TV had them kissing each other. Disgusting little punk. Just curious though if, under circumstances whereby a senator, congressman, or other elected official is forced out of office like this, do they still get lifetime healthcare and other benefits? If so, then that is criteria that needs to be changed along with enacting term limits.

  • That's one thing I have asked from the beginning, Do they get to keep their little perks like, life time pension, healthcare and other benefits and the ability to make under the table deals. I wonder how one would find out. You won't hear about any of that on 6 o'clock news.

  • It's a FERS Civil Service retirement same as any other federal civil servant who started service after 1985:

    1) He has 9 years of service so he is tenured

    2) He is age 67 so he is eligible for an immediate retirement annuity = 9% of the average of his high three annual salary = $15,660 per annum

    3) IF he has been continuously enrolled for the last five years he is eligible for continued participation in any FEHB health plan as long as he continues to pay his share of the monthly premiums.
