If I had meant to say "he's about to get replaced by a Republican child molester from Alabama", then I would have posted "he's about to get replaced by a Republican child molester from Alabama".
Considering the Alabama election isn't until tuesday, its still a tad bit premature to put Moore as victor - granted, the state has a reputation for shooting itself in the foot, but it isn't a done deal yet either.

Dayton picks Lt. Gov. Tina Smith for Franken's senate seat - StarTribune.com

DFL Gov. Mark Dayton on Wednesday appointed Lt. Gov. Tina Smith to the U.S. Senate, where she’ll replace Sen. Al Franken following his planned resignation after a sexual harassment scandal.
Quote:
Smith also said she would run in the special election in November 2018, as a candidate to serve the final two years of Franken’s current term.

I was almost hoping he would win because it would be so amusing to watch. The Rs could hardly afford NOT to get rid of him ASAP and the dems would have something for 2018.

But it does mean that there is a better chance of getting rid of them, when they lose in Alabama.

Senator Al Franken’s Resignation Is Deeply Unfair

Leahy regrets calling for Franken to resign

It is a sign for other seats. There is a worry of where he falls to the political spectrum.
