It comes as no surprise really the latest accusations against Al Franken.
He comes from Hollywood, and he is a Democrat.
In a piece written by Leann Tweeden, she describes the encounters with Senator Franken in December of 2006. What is even more despicable is the fact it happened during a USO tour. Using his stature as a comedian and as the headliner on the tour, he “insisted that they rehearse the kiss” in a scene he wrote for her. Continuing to pressure her. When she finally relented, she figured that she would turn her head away at the last minute, but Franken “aggressively stuck his tongue down her mouth.” She pushed him away and warned him. During the actual performance, she turned her head to avoid the kiss altogether. What makes matters worse is that Mr. Franken decided to retaliate against her drawing devil horns on some of her head shots.
On the way home, she fell asleep on the plane and when she got home and reviewed the CD of the photos of the tour, she was surprised to find a picture of Franken groping her while she was asleep.
But wait, there is more to this despicable human.
Later today, there was another accuser, Media Equalizer Co-Founder Melanie Morgan who detailed the encounter in August 2000 on an episode of Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher. Apparently after confronting Franken on air about some incorrect talking points (suprise surprise), he obsessed about getting her phone number, and what she felt was stalking behavior.
Of course, everyone is innocent until proven guilty right? Except in this case we actually have a picture of the victim and her predator.
There is only one thing left to do…
Senator Franken, do the honorable thing and restore dignity to the government by stepping down. Resign immediately.
