Army vet says Franken groped her in 2003

A Fifth Woman Has Accused Al Franken Of Sexual Misconduct Fifth Accuser: Army Vet Claims Al Franken Groped Her in 2003

And two more women, who spoke to the Huffington Post on condition of anonymity, each claim that Franken inappropriately touched them, one saying he's a "serial groper".

Street art collective UnsavoryAgents is behind the addition of Al Franken's likeness to a film billboard near the 10 Freeway in Palms.

Franken appears to emerge from the right side of the billboard, leaning across to grab a trapeze artist suspended in mid-air portrayed by the actress Zendaya. The first, radio personality Leeann Tweeden, provided the media with a photo that shows Franken mugging for the camera while groping her breast while she slept.

A fifth woman has come forward to accuse U.S. Senator Al Franken, D-Minn., of sexual misconduct.

The national news network says that Stephanie Kemplin, 41, of Maineville, Ohio, alleges that Franken groped her in December 2003, while she was deployed in Kuwait, cupping her breast during a photo opportunity.

"We want them to laugh, we want them to think, and we just don't want these elitists - these people in their ivory towers - to be constantly looking down their nose at the working class", the man said.

Kemplin said while she was stationed in the Middle East during the Iraq War, she met Franken - at the time, a comedian and writer - as he was visiting American troops with the USO. "He kept his hand all the way over on my breast", Kemplin said in an interview.

Kemplin, 41, of OH, is the fifth woman to come forward with claims against the now Minnesota senator, and the second to allege the inappropriate behavior took place during a USO tour.

Franken's office released the same statement it provided CNN late Wednesday.

After the interview, the woman tells us, "I reached out my hand to shake his".

Three other women have since come forward accusing Franken of unwanted touching. "He remains fully committed to cooperating with the ethics investigation".

Jezebel was able to confirm that the woman appeared on Franken's show and talked to two people, including the woman's sister, who said they were told about the incident nearly immediately.
