If you believe Wikipedia, here is a list of Senators that have been expelled/censured throughout history.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_Senators...

The only time a senator has been expelled, it was for supporting the Confederacy during the Civil War. So maybe they should find some ties to Franken's great-grandfather owning slaves or something.

Outside of that, there has only been 4 senators censured since WWII and none since 1990. So odds are really good that Franken will continue to represent MN. At least until re-election.
