Time for Al to resign.
Oh wait, he’s a democrat, no need.
A California TV host and sports radio broadcaster on Thursday accused Democratic Sen. Al Franken of kissing and groping her without her consent in 2006.
Leeann Tweeden posted a blog detailing the alleged incident and also tweeted a picture of what seems to be a grinning Franken standing over her as she sleeps, pretending to grab her breasts.
Franken said in a statement he doesn’t remember the kissing incident but apologized for posing for the picture. He said he intended it to be funny - but it wasn’t.
Tweeden said the abuse took place during a USO Tour in Afghanistan.
Franken, a former writer for “Saturday Night Live,” wrote a sketch for the tour in which his character kisses hers on stage.
Tweeden said Franken repeatedly pressured her to practice the kiss backstage and at one point forcibly kissed her.
“I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time,” she wrote. “I walked away. All I could think about was getting to a bathroom as fast as possible to rinse the taste of him out of my mouth.”
Tweeden said she felt “disgusted and violated” – and that the abuse didn’t stop there.
A photographer, who was with them on their C-17 cargo plane ride back home, snapped a picture of what looks to be a sleeping Tweeden, still wearing her flak vest and Kevlar helmet, and a grinning Franken appearing to grab her breasts.
“I couldn’t believe it,” she wrote. “He groped me, without my consent, while I was asleep. I felt violated all over again. Embarrassed. Belittled. Humiliated. How dare anyone grab my breasts like this and think it’s funny?”
Tweeden said she thinks Franken asked someone to take the photo “knowing I would see it later, and be ashamed.”
