A TV host and sports broadcaster on Thursday accused Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) of kissing and groping her without her consent in 2006.
Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of groping her, without her consent, while she was asleep and provided a photo as evidence.

I certainly dont remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann. As to the photo, it was clearly intended to be funny but wasnt. I shouldnt have done it, his statement says.
He can try to ignore it, but judging by the reaction on social media, a non-denial denial ain’t gonna cut it.
LOL.......nominated for best laugh of the day.
Where’s Gloria Allred? Oh wait a minute...forget it.
Hannity can take his Tick-Tock and shove it up his a...
Yep...the butting in on his guests and his tick-tock teasing has become extremely annoying.
“Intended to humiliate her?”
My guess: he took the photo to humiliate her in private, but also for the possibility of silencing her going forward through the threat of public humiliation.
He can try to ignore it, but judging by the reaction on social media, a non-denial denial aint gonna cut it.
The Demonut Brain Trust is smoking right now making up their answer
He’ll just come out and give a tearful apology to the cameras and all will be forgiven and forgotten...............
What Franken did was to humiliate her in front of her peers using sexual innuendo. That is intended to cause others to take her unseriously. It wouldn't be "goofing off" if it were done to a sleeping man, hence the sexual nature of it.
It is sexual harassment in the workplace, intended to demean her and harm future opportunities if the others "in on the joke" are ever in a hiring position over her in the future.
The story is above the fold, so to speak, on Drudge now.
Is that one of our soldiers he’s doing it to.
That effing scumbag should resign.
Franken is in a safe seat. The Dims will happily toss him to the sharks. I expect he resigns today or tomorrow. The photo is just devastating.
There’s more to the story....he previously shoved his tongue “down her throat” in rehearsing for a skit...
“...no woman in their right mind would WILLINGLY do anything sexual with that ...”
Not authentic women. Proggie women will.
As a 30 year professional in industry, I shake my head and wonder where’s the accountability......I realized, Hollywood and Politics are completely removed from reality.....
I think she has opened the door for the other women ,harassed by Congress Critters ,to open up.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Frankens home state colleague, also didnt immediately respond to inquiries. She is co-sponsor of a bill unanimously approved by the Senate last week that will mandate sexual harassment training for all senators and their staffs.
These beltway pigs and their staffs are so arrogant and sheltered they think they can get away with this. With photo evidence of a crime? He’ll have an attitude correction soon since he’s about to get Weinstein’d.
Would have been funny for her to release the story and then Al Franken deny. Then she release the photo.
I wish someone with a little integrity would have seen him do that and beat the @#$# out of him.
I realize I am asking water to flow up hill when I say this but,
When they say that the House paid harassment settlements what they really mean is that the Tax Payer paid the settlements.
These assaults are not committed by the House of Representatives. They are committed by depraved individuals and should be the responsibility of those individuals.
In the real world these men would be fired after their actions came to light and cost the company money. But these men because of their position are protected from such punishment.
It should stop.
