BREAKING: Senator Al Franken Kissed and Groped Me Without My Consent, And There’s Nothing Funny About It

By Leeann Tweeden

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.

As a TV host and sports broadcaster, as well as a model familiar to the audience from the covers of FHM, Maxim and Playboy, I was only expecting to emcee and introduce the acts, but Franken said he had written a part for me that he thought would be funny, and I agreed to play along.

When I saw the script, Franken had written a moment when his character comes at me for a ‘kiss’. I suspected what he was after, but I figured I could turn my head at the last minute, or put my hand over his mouth, to get more laughs from the crowd.

Wonder if Mitch McConnell is going to get an Ethics Hearing together and expel Franken from the Senate. Seems that's what he's fixin' to do to Judge Moore and there's no picture evidence of Moore's offenses to back his accusers' wildly imaginative stories.

Press charges, 1144? That's not done much for NJ Senator Menedez has it? Lindsey Graham went and testified for the Senator accused of taking bribes and soliciting underaged hookers. You really think that'll do anything?

This just exemplifies the degeneracy that lurks in DC representing every good, hardworking American. Are you getting your money's worth?

Add this to the questionable votes that kept him most recently in office.

Can you imagine having anything done to you by Franken? I'd rather drink from a septic tank.

Franken issued a statement that he meant the photo to be funny. LOL Not so funny now that everyone is dissing Moore. Shameless.

Isn't this the same Franken that asked Jeff Sessions all those funny questions during DOJ confirmation hearings? He's funny!

He used her as a sexual comedy prop. The operative word is "used", as in without her permission, which amounts to sexual assault.

Franken is flipping out, releasing over 6 press releases since this woman came forward this morning. LOL. He's unhinged! Is McConnell starting his Ethics Committee review? Haven't heard a word from the Majority Leader.

Hint: this whole situation just shows you the war on Moore is very personal between Mitch and Bannon. I have my popcorn. It's gonna be a long friggin' month.

See President Trump was right again! He stated when you are a celebrity or powerful you can do whatever you want to women. Of course the democrats because their isn't an honest one dead or alive twisted the President's words into he did this when that's not at all what he said.
Franken should be immediately tossed out of the senate and if possible criminal charges should be brought against him. He is and always has been gross just like the rest of the democrats.

What comes around goes around with the lying democrats. God will not let them win! The allegations against Roy Moore are false but now picture proving Franken is a pervert. Just like the election win of Donald J Trump God will continue to slap the putrid useless degenerates who call themselves democrats back down into the gutter where they all belong.
Can't wait for more of God's will to be done and Hillary and the rest o the corrupted are taken away in handcuffs and rot in prison where they belong. God is Good and will not and has not turned his back on the good, the just and the righteous people of the country. But He will continue to punish the democrats and it will get worse for them.

Apology was issued and apology was accepted. There's the difference for you shorebillies

Unfortunately there are two standards here. Hearsay as to the republicans, just accusations that keep being linked to the democrats, but the democrats want them to be held accountable, removed from office and charged. But the democrats keep being proved time and time again of their criminal acts, but they keep getting a free pass.

Apology was accepted by who? Do you live in a fantasy world?

Besides the photo of Franken being “funny,” this woman says she told her husband and several of the other tour members about the forced kiss at the time. Contemporaneous statements lend credibility to a story for which there were no eyewitnesses. The same was true of Juanita Broaddrick’s story (she told some people at the time), and of Paula Jones.

This is the perfect story because it exposes the hypocrisy of both Democrats and the GOPe at the same time. If McConnell uses this to whitewash Franken while also using it to threaten Roy Moore, his hypocrisy will be exposed.
The Senate is going to be the one on trial here. Then the swamp will be drained a lot more come 2018 and beyond.
