Posted on 11/20/2017 11:58:40 AM PST by Kaslin
Days after a photo surfaced of Sen. Al Franken grabbing a womans 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.
The incident would have occurred while Franken was in the Senate, unlike the 2006 incident, which happened before he was elected.
Menz contacted CNN and provided more details on Thursday, hours after the first allegation was made public, according to the cable TV news network.
FRANKEN SPOKESMAN SAYS SENATOR WON'T RESIGN
The 33-year-old woman alleged the incident occurred at a booth at the fair where elected officials, political candidates and celebrities stopped by and had their pictures taken.

I’d rather have my picture taken with the prize sow and her piglets.
But but Roy Moore, Trump should resign or something.
Oh, and Al, Harvey and the rest of the Hollywood democrat money machine are sorry so all is good bro.
Melanie Morgan was the 2nd victim.
If the skanks at SNL were not afraid of being Blacklisted more would speak up.
Lets face it this guy is a perv.
This brings back fond memories of the Kennedy - Chris Dodd female assistant sandwiches at all the DC gatherings.
Good times.... good times.
Maybe we should not be so hard on Al Franken because he has a “sickness” and he “is seeking help” and he is “so brave” to fight his addictions. On the other hand.... NO!
He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said OK so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.
I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldnt be so nice about it the next time.
I walked away. All I could think about was getting to a bathroom as fast as possible to rinse the taste of him out of my mouth.
I felt disgusted and violated.
Tweeden wrote that she chose not to alert her supervisors of the incident, so as not to cause trouble while in the middle of a war zone, and ignored Franken for the remainder of the tour. It wasnt until she returned home to L.A., she wrote, that she saw the photo, taken during the 36-hour flight from Afghanistan to L.A. I felt violated all over again. Embarrassed. Belittled. Humiliated, she wrote.
Every time I hear his voice or see his face, I am angry. I am angry that I did his stupid skit for the rest of that tour. I am angry that I didnt call him out in front of everyone when I had the microphone in my hand every night after that. I wanted to. But I didnt want to rock the boat. I was there to entertain the troops and make sure they forgot about where they were for a few hours. Someday, I thought to myself, I would tell my story.
Franken has already responded. Suffice it to say, this wont cut it.
Hannity mentioned a 3rd person. We shall see.
He didn’t remember groping that particular lady at the Min. St.Fair since there were so many to remember .
Ahahahahahaha the age of Trump. Where the right is empowered to fight back, and wins. Trump throws his weight around and destroys the NFL, and wins and is proven right about everything he tweets while the left despairs.
Add poetry to your talents ;)
The hogs probably smell better than Franken.
He just looks like he has bad breath and poor personal hygiene.
Turn out the lights, the party is over, and the fat lady is singing. Hasta la vista, Al!
Pigs will keep clean if you allow them to.
This article is about women who claimed that Franken groped them.
Melanie Morgan is claiming harassment and intimidation.
Wow... Old Al’s turning out to be a real Male Slut, ain’t he???
Maybe we should take some more moral directions from him...
It’s a real shocker to me. I thought he was gay all this time.
