Yet Another Woman Accuses Al Franken of Groping
This makes 9
It’s been almost two years since Democrats sacrificed Al Franken on the #metoo altar resulting in his unwilling resignation from the Senate.
Now, another woman is claiming Franken groped her.
According to The Cut, this latest and ninth Franken accuser claims he grabbed her butt during a photo:
“I was just out of college in my first job, working for U.S. senator Patty Murray,” she told New York. Franken, then exploring a run for the Senate, was the guest speaker at Murray’s annual Golden Tennis Shoes Awards (named for a dismissive description of Murray, early in her political career, as a mom in tennis shoes).
The woman worked the photo line, and when it was her turn to be photographed with Franken, she said, “he puts his hand on my ass. He’s telling the photographer, ‘Take another one. I think I blinked. Take another one.’ And I’m just frozen. It’s so violating. And then he gives me a little squeeze on my buttock, and I am bright red. I don’t say anything at the time, but I felt deeply, deeply uncomfortable.”
A military veteran who is now a senior staffer at a major progressive organization, she is the ninth woman to accuse Franken of inappropriate conduct and the fourth to say Franken grabbed her butt. New York also spoke to three individuals in whom she had confided after the first Franken accusations emerged; she says that she did not tell anyone about the incident after it happened out of embarrassment.
…When she saw the first news alert about Franken, the woman said, she burst into tears. “I really considered adding my voice,” she said. But years after the Franken incident, she had reported unwelcome attention from her boss at work and ended up leaving the job after feeling ostracized.
She dreams of being a Cabinet secretary in a future Democratic administration, she said, and “knowing the vetting process, I know that anything can be used as a flag to say, ‘Not this person.’ The idea that I would not get a job and would always wonder: Was it the article where I was the one who was raising my hand against a powerful man?”
Just a few days ago, Franken made a public appearance where he recounted his Senate glory days:

Hee hee hee. haw haw haw. His glory days were the days he could assault women ad nausea um.
Why now? It’s too late to cash in on a book deal. Franken is a toothless political has-been, so this ain’t much a an SJW resume enhancement for this woman.
“They” are looking for a way to restart the #metoo movement to a higher pitch to ensnare Trump or some other Republicans and since Franken is already a loss for them maybe he can jumpstart some embers to get things burning again.

What, she actually wants to be a wheeler ‘n dealer in the Buttgrabber Party, but still wants to complain about it?
After Clinton and Franken, it’s no good pretending to be surprised after you get exactly what you voted for.
There is no link to The Cut article.
It is best to keep adding stakes to politically dead politicians, you never know when they will try to resurrect themselves. Even with all the dirt, Hillary is trying to figure how she can become president. I have family members who would vote for Franken even if he was caught raping little boys.
I’d just as soon see Frankenstein in chains but the time to hit was when the iron was hot.
Ha Ha! This news has made my day and I don’t care how old the news is!! Franken is a PIG!
That’s a high resolution photo (unlike the only the fuzzy ones allowed by the MSM at the time) so you can see Franken-weenie is actually touching her inappropriately.
The original is here:
It’s what Tweeden uploaded to the KABC site.
In either version you can see the shadows under Franken’s fingers and hands and you can see the lack of indications of finertip pressure on the fabric of her flak jacket.
So, no, he’s not touching her, he’s groping thin air pretending to grope the body armor in her flak jacket
Body armor, by the way, which would have prevented anyone from getting to her breasts, if they’d been trying to.
He wasnt even funny as a comedian.
Hmmm…. I would like to say something unusual….
As someone whose been a single female all my life, men hit on women. They do it. If you can’t handle a man doing what men do (I’m not talking rape & such, but these much lesser actions), then don’t spend time around them alone.
Just don’t. Men are men. They aren’t women. These women need to wake up and notice the difference.
And this is exactly why Dads with Daughters Don’t Want Them to Date.
You know what I’m talking about.
If she was former military, why didn’t she just punch him in the throat?
Apologies for the down rating–I was trying for the reply button and the page jumped.
I’d be happy to undo it if someone can tell me how.
Anyway, she said she was in her first job out of college, so at that point it’s possible her military stint was still in the future.
Not that I’m not 1,000% relieved Al Franken is gone, by any means necessary!
Good. Because you just know he’s itching to make a comeback after the way he was so unfairly lumped in with Weinstein and all those other bad boys.
She’s a military veteran and she froze instead of turning to him and saying, “Get your hand off my ass right now!” Sad.
That’s what being a good Democrat is all about about. Everything is subordinated to the Collective. Independence, money, freedom, integrity . . everything.
She’s a veteran *now*, but when this allegedly happened in ’06 she was supposedly fresh out of college, so she might not have joined up until later on.
