In another instance of a public figure being accused of sexual assault, Democratic Senator from Minnesota Alan Stuart “Al” Franken has been accused of inappropriate sexual behavior with a TV host. Leeann Tweeden, a sportscaster and news anchor has now accused Al Franken of said, “I’ve decided it’s time to tell my story,” as she Tweeted the horrific tale of how the Senator behaved with her.
She said that Al Franken has kissed and groped her without her consent, and also posing for lewd pictures without her knowledge. She says that back in 2006, when they were on a tour around the United States, Franken behaved indecently with her.
Unlike several other women who have accused public figures of sexual assault, Leeann Tweeden also provided a photo to back her story. In the image, Al Franken can be seen trying to grab her breasts as she is asleep. Franken, who denied to comment on the accusation itself, simply said that he was “sorry” for posing for such a photograph.
Al Franken has been a huge critic of others who have been accused of harassment, however, he continues to keep silent on the allegations against him. Further, Tweeden also revealed that during the rehersals for one of their shows, Franken locked her into a kiss, despite her fighting back.
Here is the photo that Leeann Tweeden shared:
Below is an excerpt of what Leeann Tweeden wrote on KABC, where she is a morning news anchor:
On the day of the show Franken and I were alone backstage going over our lines one last time. He said to me, “We need to rehearse the kiss.” I laughed and ignored him. Then he said it again. I said something like, ‘Relax Al, this isn’t SNL…we don’t need to rehearse the kiss.’
He continued to insist, and I was beginning to get uncomfortable.
He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.
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.
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.
I felt disgusted and violated.
Not long after, I performed the skit as written, carefully turning my head so he couldn’t kiss me on the lips.
After the past week, the Democrats have been up in arms after a lady claimed that she was assaulted by Roy Moore, but they have conveniently decided to remain mu regarding this incident. Roy Moor’s accuser stepson clearly made a video statement telling how his stepmom may be actually lying about the incident and she did not have a single piece of proof to back her up.
But this case is nothing like that. The lady has proof, she has shared an image of the Senator molesting her. Will the Democratic party dare to give us an answer? Share this story, let everybody be aware of this molester!
