  • Sen. Al Franken

Meanwhile, Franken faces a new allegation from a woman who says he inappropriately touched her at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010.

"If somebody wanted a picture, I would ask: should I put my arm on your back or your shoulder?" he said, and indicated that he felt particularly inclined to do so when taking photos with women.

A woman has come forward to claim Sen.

Menz told CNN she saw Franken at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010, at a time he was a senator.

"It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek", she said".

"It wasn't around my waist".

Marshawn Lynch sat during United States anthem but stood during Mexican anthem
Trump said to the crowd at the rally, drawing criticism from NFL players, as well as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. A couple players protested during the anthem in week 11. "He said, 'This is something I've done for 11 years".


Menz spoke with CNN about her story, calling the incident "uncomfortable".

Last week, Leeann Tweeden said Franken, while they were on a USO tour in the Middle East to entertain USA troops, stuck his tongue down her throat and pretended to grope her while she was sleeping in a later picture. It wasn't around my hip or side. "I was like, 'Oh my God, what's happening?'"

She also posted the photo with Franken to her Facebook page soon afterwards and her sister, Cari Thunker, commented "Sorry, but you two aren't Bibles (sic) width apart", referring to how closely the two were standing to each other in the picture.

Franken apologized to Tweeden and has since agreed to be investigated by the Senate Ethics Committee.

Sports broadcaster and former model Leeann Tweeden had previously accused the former comedian of touching her while she slept and kissing her without her consent in 2006 - the latest in a string of sexual assault allegations against prominent American men.

"I feel badly that Ms. Menz came away from our interaction feeling disrespected".
