It's been nearly a month Franken announced he would leave office.

A spokesman for the the democratic senator from Minnesota says he's ending his political career in the U.S. Senate over allegations of sexual misconduct.

The former Saturday Night Live comedian turned politician says he won't, however, give up his voice.

Minnesota's Lieutenant Governor, Tina Smith, will be sworn in on Wednesday to replace Franken.
