Sen. Al Franken should resign from the Senate for his alleged sexual offenses against women, says Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, the nation's largest Catholic civil rights organization.

And if he won't voluntarily go, Franken should be expelled by his fellow senators, according to Donohue.

"[Franken] did a media tour explaining away his sexual offenses. 'I'm looking forward to getting back to work tomorrow,' he said. He should instead take some of his own medicine and resign," Donohue said in a column for CNS News.

Donohue noted that the Minnesota Democrat, co-sponsored a bill, the End Trafficking in Government Contracting Act, in 2012 to strengthen federal legislation on human trafficking, because a "zero tolerance" policy wasn't working.

A year later, Donohue said, In July 2013, Franken co-sponsored he Military Justice Improvement Act, to deal with the "epidemic of sexual assault in the military."

It was "noble" of Franken to support zero tolerance, but "ignoble" of him to go back to work, according to Donohue.

"Does he think that his support for legislation combating sexual abuse should not extend to him? He has admitted to one act of sexual abuse, and is accused by three other women of violating them," Donohue said.

"Ironically, it was the Catholic Church that first instituted a 'zero tolerance' policy for abusers. And what did Franken do? He mocked it. Now that Franken has proven that he has no integrity left, it is up to the Senate to show him the door. He is utterly shameless."
