Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is the latest public figure to face accusations of sexual misconduct, as a woman is now accusing Franken of kissing and groping her without her consent. "It wasn't until I was back in the U.S. and looking through the CD of photos we were given by the photographer that I saw this one", Tweeden says of the photo, which shows Franken grinning, his hands on Tweeden's clothed breasts.
The USO - which sponsored the tour on which Franken and Tweeden travelled - said it was never aware of the incident. Her account includes a photo of Franken posing for the camera as he reaches for Tweeden's breasts while she appears to be asleep. "Comedy is no excuse for inappropriate conduct, and I believe there should be an ethics investigation", McCaskill wrote on Twitter.
Speaking on her radio show Thursday morning, Tweeden said she didn't come forward with the allegations sooner because she feared her career, including a stint as a swimsuit model, would lead others to discount her story. "How dare anyone grab my breasts like this and think it's amusing?"
Tweeden wrote in a column on Tuesday that Franken forcefully kissed her and groped her without permission in 2006.
"On a typical night, Carl would slip into Rob's bed, roll him over, swab him down and say something like, 'I'm thinking about hiring Morey Amsterdam to play Buddy Sorrell, what do you think?'" Franken said. "We're not going to fix the problems of sexual harassment and assault until men take responsibility for their actions and change their behavior".
Franken attended as a comedian and organizer of some shows to entertain the soldiers that Tweeden describes as "full of sexual innuendos geared toward a young, male audience". He knew exactly what he did to me then, that picture was out there.
While I don't remember the rehearsal for the skit as Leeann does, I understand why we need to listen to and believe women's experiences. "It isn't amusing. It's completely inappropriate", he said. Franken said then that he regretted some of the things he had written, and said he respected women "in both my personal and professional life".
"I respect women. I don't respect men who don't".
"The apology, sure, I accept it. People make mistakes, of course he knew he made a mistake". I strongly condemn this behavior and the Senate Ethics Committee must open an investigation.
