Seventh Woman Accuses Al Franken Of Inappropriate Sexual Conduct

A seventh woman has come forward with disturbing allegations about the behavior of Democratic Sen. Al Franken (Minn.). The woman, who did not wish to be named, told Politico that Franken tried to kiss her without her consent during a taping of his radio show in 2006. “I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door, and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer,'” the woman recalled. She noted the similarities between her story and President Trump’s crude comments on a 2005 Access Hollywood tape: “Hearing Donald Trump say essentially the same thing that Al Franken said to me … was a real trigger,” she added. Franken said the allegation was “categorically not true.”
