Senator Al Franken Kissed and Groped Me Without My Consent, And There’s Nothing Funny About It

http://www.kabc.com/2017/11/16/leeann-tweeden-on-senator-al-franken/

I mean c'mon, Al.

A. It is wrong. Period.

B. It is a **** thing for a then aspiring politician to do.

    It's wrong, but "groping" through body armor is a little of stretch. Anyone that's worn that stuff knows you couldn't feel a baseball under that crap.

    Kind of agree. I don't know if I would call that a "grope." Sounds like there was other stuff besides that, though.

    I cannot STAND Al Franken.

    But at some point, we are going to get to a witch hunt. And i think l we've already arrived. Hollywood never stopped being Hollywood. Back in the day, Sintra could slap the hell out of a woman and no one blinks an eye. They just went underground.

    This will turn into an attempt to dismantle the "patriarchy" by feminists. The claims are going to get more and more stupid. You heard it here first, folks.

    He wasn't even touching her in that photo. It was tasteless, but not assault.

    And I'm here defending Franken. Dear God.

    A. He was not an aspiring politician at the time.
    B. I think he is right, he remembers it very differently. Kissing as part of a bit is very different than ****.

    No comment, other than I guess I won't be running for Congress anytime soon.

    If Al Frankin were good looking this would not have been an issue.

    I've been thinking a lot about this. Franken apologized, and it was a heartfelt apology. I feel like the "Grope" through the flak jacket WAS the joke, since its literally impossible to grope anything with one on. But, the joke fell flat and the woman in question didn't appreciate it. It might have been different if she were awake. Anyway, I don't think Franken should resign over it.

    Not that I'm giving Franken a pass, I'm not but I would like to hear the version of this story from the photographer. I read something somewhere yesterday and now I can't find it. But it was basically suggested that the whole thing was staged and that the "victim" is a Trump supporter. (whatever that means)

    That was fake news. What is true is she is a Foxeteer and Trump supporter.

    The videos and photos show her joking around kissing soldiers and grabbing the singers butt in a way that would suggest it would be OK to play around with her. And She appeared on Sean Hannity's Fox show twice. Her motives are clouded to say the least.

    Franken now announcing that he's going to resign over this. Moore and others should probably be doing the same thing.

    It's going to be open season on anyone and everyone now. Guilty until proven innocent.

    There is no liberal media. MSNBC now has more Republican spokesmen than Fox now.

    Trump has twice as many accusers as Franken.
