  • Woman says Al Franken grabbed her butt in 2010 while he was in office

Franken came by, she said, "pulled me in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear". 36 women from the show signed a letter noting that he erred in his treatment of Leeann Tweeden, but that the women from SNL had been treated with "the utmost respect and regard" during his time on the show. Al Franken, D-Minn., days after a radio host accused the lawmaker of forcibly kissing and groping her more than a decade ago.

Franken responded to this by offering a public apology and promising that he will cooperate with any congressional ethics investigations into his history.

Meanwhile, a second woman, Lindsay Menz, of Frisco, Texas, contacted CNN in the aftermath of Tweeden's allegations, stating that Franken touched her "bottom" while the two of them were posing for a photo at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010. "I don't want to paint my story in the same light as hers", Menz said, saying she believes what happened to Tweeden is much worse.

Menz told CNN she wanted to share an "uncomfortable" interaction that left her feeling "gross".

Franken said he felt "disgusted" by the photo in which he appeared to grope Tweeden, or at a minimum pretended to do so. "I don't know what was in my head when I took that picture, and it doesn't matter".

The statement came as newly surfaced photos of Franken inappropriately grabbing Arianna Huffington emerged. Tweeden also released a photo showing Franken grabbing her chest through her protective vest while she was sleeping. She added, "It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek".

She said she didn't say anything to the senator but later told her husband and father soon after, as the two men confirmed to CNN.

This is the second allegation of sexual misconduct by Franken in less than a week, and the first that allegedly occurred while he served in the Senate.
