Franken said of the incident, "I certainly don't remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann".

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A group of women who worked alongside Al Franken on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" have signed a statement of support for the Minnesota senator.
