Exclamation Senator Al Franken Kissed and Groped woman without consent

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.

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.

No one saw what happened backstage. I didn’t tell the Sergeant Major of the Army, who was the sponsor of the tour. I didn’t tell our USO rep what happened.

At the time I didn’t want to cause trouble. We were in the middle of a war zone, it was the first show of our Holiday tour, I was a professional, and I could take care of myself. I told a few of the others on the tour what Franken had done and they knew how I felt about it.

I tried to let it go, but I was angry.

Other than our dialogue on stage, I never had a voluntary conversation with Al Franken again. I avoided him as much as possible and made sure I was never alone with him again for the rest of the tour.

Franken repaid me with petty insults, including drawing devil horns on at least one of the headshots I was autographing for the troops.

But he didn’t stop there.

The tour wrapped and on Christmas Eve we began the 36-hour trip home to L.A. After 2 weeks of grueling travel and performing I was exhausted. When our C-17 cargo plane took off from Afghanistan I immediately fell asleep, even though I was still wearing my flak vest and Kevlar helmet.

It wasn’t until I was back in the US and looking through the CD of photos we were given by the photographer that I saw this one:

I have no clue if he did all that stuff she said he did when nobody was looking. Its just her word against his in the end. I however would not put it past his slimy butt.

It is 98% likely he is not above pretending to grope her while she sleeps on camera(dumb azz anyway). I say 98% only because I was not actually there and seen him with my own eyes, don't know the actual situation. That pic says many words to me tho. Fu**wit is one of them. I can quickly think of about a 1/2 dozen more but out of respect to the forum, I will re-frame from doing so.

I don't know about resign persay, but in a slightly perfect world. He would never be reelected now that this slimy behavior of his is out of the bag.

Chunking him out would in no way bother me either, it should be up to his peers I guess, if that is even possible.

How is there no proof? There's a photo of her sleeping and Al Franken groping her. I'd say that's about as corroborative as one can get. Furthermore, the SOB tweeted out the image in 2014 as part of a "joke"....that's definitely meant to be a power play against her and a type of revenge for rejecting him.

How is Al Franken being photographed grabbing her breasts while she's asleep not sexual assault just on the face of it?

How would you feel if your wife fell asleep on a plane and another passenger grabbed her breasts? Wouldn't you say that's sexual assault?

I agree. He should resign right away. Obviously this event took place in roughly the last ten years and it shows he has a problem with female colleauges.

Basically, I understand he is, or rather was a comedian. (Some say he still is). He could have thought this was waz some kinda funny posing for the camera like this, but I however think it makes him look mostly like a perv. But hey, thats just MHO.

In my minds eye. Some sheot you just don't pick about. So he or anyone that exhibit this kinda behavior will never get a pass from my old azz.
