Progressive leftist Senator Al Franken, a 2020 Democrat presidential hopeful, is being accused of forcibly kissing and groping KABC Talkradio 790 (Los Angeles) news anchor Leeann Tweeden, including grabbing her breasts while she was sleeping (see photo above).
Tweeden, a former fitness model, wrote on the KABC website that in December of 2006, she was on her ninth USO tour to entertain military troops in the Middle East when the sexual abuse occurred.

[score]Al Franken [/score]was also on the trip and wrote a comedy script which included him kissing Tweeden, but Franken insisted that they “rehearse” the kissing part behind stage.

She explains Franken’s sexual assault:
“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.”
Tweeden said that she tried to let it go but was angry and that she made every effort not to be alone with Franken again.
However, Tweeden stated that Al Franken, a leading voice of progressive leftist Democrats, “repaid me with petty insults, including drawing devil horns on at least one of the headshots I was autographing for the troops.”
But Franken didn’t stop there, Leann Tweeden revealed.
“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 couldn’t believe it. He groped me, without my consent, while I was asleep.
I felt violated all over again. Embarrassed. Belittled. Humiliated.
How dare anyone grab my breasts like this and think it’s funny?”
Tweeden said that she wanted to come public at the time, but “was worried about the potential backlash and damage going public might have on my career as a broadcaster.”
“But that was then, this is now,” Tweeden wrote. “I’m no longer afraid.”
Leann Tweeden said that her story is worth telling and there may be others he has assaulted and that she’s still angry over the sexual assault.
Will CNN and MSNBC cover this story 24/7 as they’ve done with Roy Moore? Will Al Franken, a sitting Democrat Senator, have the Washington Post researching other women who have possibly been harassed by him?
Will [score]Mitch McConnell [/score]call for Franken to immediately leave office, or will he expel him as he’s promised to do if Judge Roy Moore is elected in Alabama on December 12, someone whose charges against him are 38 years ago and much flimsier?
After all, there are pictures here. Or, are the above standards only applicable when the establishment doesn’t want a Christian conservative constitutionalist in office?
