A woman says Sen. Al Franken inappropriately touched her in 2010, telling CNN that he grabbed her buttocks while taking a photo at the Minnesota State Fair.
It comes just days after Leeann Tweeden, a local radio news anchor in California, said that Franken forcibly kissed and groped her in 2006, when Franken was a comedian.
This was while he was in office. Note that!
Lindsay Menz, a 33-year-old woman who now lives in Frisco, Texas, reached out to CNN on Thursday hours after Tweeden made her story public. Menz said she wanted to share an “uncomfortable” interaction that left her feeling “gross.”
According to Menz, she attended the Minnesota State Fair with her husband and father in the summer of 2010, almost two years after Franken was elected to the Senate. Her father’s small business was sponsoring a local radio booth, and she spent the day meeting various elected officials, political candidates and celebrities and taking photos with them as they stopped by the booth.
“It wasn’t around my waist. It wasn’t around my hip or side. It was definitely on my butt,” she said, recalling that the brazen act lasted three or four seconds. “I was like, oh my God, what’s happening.”
“He reached around her and kind of pulled her into him,” said her husband Jeremy Menz, who didn’t see what happened behind his wife. “He pulled her in and pushed his head against her head. It was over pretty quick.”
Will there be calls for his resignation from those same people who have excoriated Roy Moore for 40-year-old accusations without any proof?
Last week, pictures were released showing Senator Al Franken groping the breasts of a woman while she slept. The following day a second woman came forward.
“Yes, it’s true. I was stalked and harassed by Al Franken. I will have details @MediaEqualizer shortly,” Morgan wrote.
The story that was printed by Media Equalizer, a company Morgan cofounded, she recalls being asked to appear as a guest alongside Franken on Bill Maher’s ‘Politically Incorrect’.
The then-ABC Radio talk host of San Francisco debated numbers released by the Office of Management and Budget with Franken, William Baldwin, and former Colorado Lt. Gov. Joe Rogers.
“I made a statement about the budget numbers, Franken challenged me, I challenged him back. It was about spending priorities, actually just a mundane discussion. But he obsessed over it,” she wrote.
Morgan said Franken continued to debate her after the show, but became increasingly argumentative.
“He approached me backstage, angrily called me out on those numbers and insisted he would prove he was right. He wouldn’t leave me alone, he kept following me. As a woman, his presence and proximity to me felt very threatening and intimidating,” she said. “I didn’t realize his creepy behavior after the show meant it would continue in the days to come.”
Morgan said Franken asked the show’s producer for her phone number. She then alleged that he began calling her at her Northern California residence.
“I became fearful and called Carol to complain and asked her to tell him to back off. But he made another call after that. I thought that he might end up stalking me at my home in Northern California, it was that bad,” she said. “By the third phone call I was outraged and terrified, as he is really disturbed.”
She threatened to call the police on him, which she said prompted him to stop contacting her.
“I never forgot that experience and it informed me of his lack of character and obsessive personality. I believe every word Leann wrote,” she wrote, adding that she would be willing to testify before Congress about his behavior.
Leeann Tweeden, the first woman who accused Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., of sexual assault in 2006 said she had already received a call from Morgan.
Leeann Tweeden had released a story alleging sexual assault by Franken. Her piece included a photo of Franken grabbing her breasts while she appeared to be asleep. She wrote that the incident took place in 2006 during a USO tour with him in the Middle East.
The radio host groped and forcibly kissed by now-Senator Al Franken during a 2006 USO show says the now-infamous photo of the Democrat’s hands on her breasts while she slept wasn’t meant as a joke: It was an ‘in your face’ parting shot after nearly two weeks of being ‘belittled and humiliated.’
Democrats excoriating Roy Moore, and ignoring Sen. Al Franken should be ashamed!
