Democratic Strategist Calls for Al Franken to Resign

  • Woman says Al Franken grabbed her butt in 2010 while he was in office

The national news network says it was contacted by 33-year-old Lindsay Menz, of Texas, and she is accusing Franken of grabbing her buttocks while posing together for a photo at the Minnesota State Fair. She added, "It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek".

The allegation comes days after Franken apologized to Leann Tweeden, a Los Angeles-based television anchor, after she accused him sexual misconduct during a 2006 tour of the Middle East to entertain USA troops.

Franken told CNN in a statement he didn't recall this photo.

Franken has been regarded as a potential Democratic contender for president in 2020.

US President Donald Trump, a man accused of a variety of sexual misconduct and a man on record as having used his wealth and power as a cover to grope women, took the opportunity to scold the Democrat. If the Senate Ethics Committee moves forward with its investigation - a probe that Franken has endorsed and agreed to assist - it may therefore be treated differently.

In a statement to CNN, Franken said he didn't remember taking the photo.

He said the attempt to use a satellite phone indicates that "the submarine had to emerge to a depth that allowed the call". Doubts also surfaced over the origin of satellite signals that were initially thought to have come from the vessel.

Menz told CNN that during a 2010 visit to the fair with her husband and father - whose small business was operating a local radio booth - she spent time taking photos with various political candidates, elected officials, and even some celebrities as they appeared at her father's radio booth.

The "SNL" staffers acknowledged Franken's behavior writing, "What Al did was stupid and foolish, and we think it was appropriate for him to apologize to Ms. Tweeden, and to the public". "And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed".

On Twitter, Menz said the interaction made her feel "violated & embarassed [sic]". Franken said he would welcome it. Moore, unlike the others accused, has appeared to deny the allegations, although not without some equivocation.

Franken canceled a sold-out book festival appearance scheduled for Monday in Atlanta to speak and promote his book, "Al Franken, Giant of the Senate".
