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

Another day, another creep story. And this time it’s Al Franken:

Broadcaster and model Leeann Tweeden said Thursday that Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) “forcibly kissed” her and groped her during a USO tour in 2006, saying that “there’s nothing funny about sexual assault.”
