Another woman came out Wednesday to accuse Sen. Al Franken of sexual misconduct, prompting calls from Democratic leaders for Franken to step down.

Sens. Claire McCaskill, Maggie Hassan, Kirsten Gillibrand, Patty Murray, Mazie K. Hirono, Kamala Harris, Debbie Stabenow and Tammy Baldwin all called for Franken to step down.

“Sexual harassment and misconduct should not be allowed by anyone and should not occur anywhere. I believe the best thing for Senator Franken to do is step down,” Harris said.

Hassan tweeted, “It is clear that Al Franken has engaged in a pattern of egregious and unacceptable behavior toward women. He should resign.”

Franken is expected to make an announcement tomorrow.

Franken first came under fire after LA radio host Leeann Tweeden posted an article detailing how the Democratic senator kissed and groped her without her consent at a USO event in 2006.
