In addition to Moulton and Hassan, five other Democratic senators - all women - called on Franken to step aside or resign on Wednesday: Kristen Gillibrand, of New York, Mazie Hirono, of Hawaii, Claire McCaskill, of Missouri, Kamala Harris, of California and Patty Murray, of Washington.

"It's clear to me that this has been a deeply harmful, persistent problem and a clear pattern over a long period of time", Murray added.
