Senator Al Franken Kissed and Groped Leeann Tweeden Without Consent



Quote:
In December of 2006, I embarked on my ninth USO Tour to entertain our troops, my eighth to the Middle East since the 9/11 attacks. My father served in Vietnam and my then-boyfriend (and now husband, Chris) is a pilot in the Air Force, so bringing a ‘little piece of home’ to servicemembers stationed far away from their families was both my passion and my privilege.

Also on the trip were country music artists Darryl Worley, Mark Wills, Keni Thomas, and some cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys. The headliner was comedian and now-senator, Al Franken.

Franken had written some skits for the show and brought props and costumes to go along with them. Like many USO shows before and since, the skits were full of sexual innuendo geared toward a young, male audience.

I'll bet there will be a lot of women coming out of the woodwork to accuse this guy. He just seems like an a**. The interesting thing will be seeing how CNN, etc report it. How did this picture not surface during his Senatorial race?

Weak. Sexual harassment and assault is obviously serious, and bipartisan. But there is sexual assault then there is political correct bs.

I agree 100%. Unfortunately, the politically correct BS is being reported for the last month as sexual harassment and assault. The pendulum has swung too far. With that said, this is as bad as many of the things that I have heard lately.

The worst is when I hear a woman say that he made an "unwanted sexual advancement towards me."

The only way to get rid of "unwanted sexual advancements" is to get rid of ALL "sexual advancements." Is that the reality that we are moving towards?

There is photo evidence about Franken and only 40 year old uncorroborated accusations about Moore. Even you should be able to see the differences.

Is there photographic evidence out there of Roy Moore committing sexual assault?

Asking for a friend.

This is absurd for a lot of reasons, but since it's Franken and the and the rest of the Democrats have spent years convincing us that minor words and actions and even jokes are evidence someone is a monster, then I'm all for stringing him up in the town square over this.

Ok. Let's talk Moore. Should as an accused person he be allowed to run?
Didn't Bill Clinton establish a precedent. He was accused of rape. Allowed to run and eventually became the president for a party willing to look the other way?
Soooooo where r we now??

The picture is nothing more than a sophomoric prank. The assault occurred when he kissed her, and he has not denied that.

I don't know. His hands are touching her breasts and she is unaware. That is beyond a prank.

A prank would have been making funny faces in the picture or drawing on her face.

I'm not really interested in defending Franken, but it looks like he's hover handing over her breasts, which are covered in a layer of kevlar. Her entire career is wearing skimpy clothing and strutting around on various stages, in this case she was doing it for the troops which is nice. But let's make no mistake, she's a small step up from a stripper. To act like she's traumatized or humiliated by this is disingenuous.

It feels like we've crossed a bridge towards ridiculousness with this sort of stuff. But Al and his fellow libs built the bridge and led us right over it. So I'm happy to see them die by the sword they loved to wield.

Let's be honest, there is alot more evidence about Al Franken and he is a member of congress. That is very different than just the allegations against a candidate like Moore and the powerful members of congress that are acting as judge, jury, and executioner like Mitch McConnell.

I do realize that. I meant to put in my original post that he was touching her breasts outside her clothes and the vest. Yes....I am sure it wasn't much of a feel and the point was the picture and not the groping. But it was still unwelcome touching I guess is my point. Definitely an ill advised prank.

So, you are saying if she were awake she would have been cool with it? Not likely. It was offensive and it was a violation of this woman. He felt he was entitled as a privileged white male. Where did he get that idea (Bill Clinton)?

I actually like Franken a little better now. He's gone from something like a minus 4 up to a minus 1 in my assessment now.

Of course it was offensive, but let's not make it more than it is. I suppose it is possible he looks down on nonwhites, but we really can't know that for sure.

They are starting to come out of the woodwork:

https://mediaequalizer.com/brian-mal...arassed-me-too

After the show, Morgan said Franken wouldn’t leave her alone, insisting on continuing the argument.

“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 intimindating.

“I didn’t realize his creepy behavior after the show meant it would continue in the days to come.

“He approached Carol, the show’s producer and demanded my home phone number, which was a clear violation of network protocol. I had thought that was the end of the story and was shocked when he started calling my home, badgering me repeatedly.

“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.

“By the third phone call I was outraged and terrified, as he is really disturbed,” Morgan recounted.


Now to be fair to Franklin this wasn't sexual harassment rather it was just old fashioned crazy guy harassment of a women.

So hey Mitch, tell us again how the US Senate, that august body of principled law makers, would be ruined by Roy Moore's presence? Sounds like he would fit right in with the rest of the creeps, reprobates and morons!
