Minnesota Senator Al Franken was accused of inappropriate sexual conduct with a model during a USO tour before he was elected to the Senate. Now a second woman has accused the Democrat of in appropriately touching her while taking a photo at state fair back in 2010. Chances are more will surface in the next few days.
Franken admitted to the first allegation and apologized but says he has no intention of stepping down from his Senate seat. It will be interesting to see what happens with Franken and his future in the Senate as more allegations of sexual misconduct are made against him.
(Fox News) – Days after a photo surfaced of Sen. Al Franken grabbing a woman’s breasts as she slept, a second woman has come forward with allegations the Minnesota Democrat inappropriately touched her in 2010.
The woman alleges Franken grabbed her buttocks while posing for a photo with her at the Minnesota State Fair, according to CNN.
The woman, Lindsay Menz, first tweeted about the alleged incident last Thursday, in response to explosive claims by Los Angeles radio anchor Leeann Tweeden that Franken forcibly kissed and groped her during a 2006 USO tour.
“In August 2010, @alfranken grabbed me while taking a photo together at the Minnesota State Fair. I felt violated & embarassed. I 100% believe your account of him & his actions, @LeeannTweeden. Thank you for sharing your story,” Menz tweeted…
So far, there are no calls from Senate leadership for Franken to resign, but the same Senate leadership continue to condemn former Judge Roy Moore although none of the allegations made against him have been substantiated. McConnell has said he will not allow Moore into the Senate, but he has remained silent on Franken. Why???
