Thirty-Six SNL Women Stick Up for Sen. Al Franken

"...[T] he truth is, what people think of me in light of this is far less important than what people think of women who continue to come forward to tell their stories".

When she met Franken, she said she had a short exchange with the senator and lined up with him to take a photo.

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". "I feel badly that Ms. Menz came away from our interaction feeling disrespected". Al Franken, D-Minn., days after a radio host accused the lawmaker of forcibly kissing and groping her more than a decade ago.

CNN said Lindsay and Jeremy Menz moved from Minnesota to Texas in 2014.

This is the second allegation of sexual misconduct by Franken in less than a week, and the first that allegedly occurred while he served in the Senate.

Menz said she was attending the fair with her husband and father. Menz also said she posted the photo with Franken on Facebook on August 27, and when her sister commented on the photo, she replied: "Dude - Al Franken TOTALLY molested me!"

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. Neither, they said, is registered with a political party. Tweeden was still wearing a helmet and a Kevlar vest over a jacket, and the photo is unclear on whether Franken actually made physical contact.

Franken said he doesn't disagree.

Menz responded, "Dude - Al Franken TOTALLY molested me!" "I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself".

"The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words".

At the same time, the president has been less forthcoming about Roy Moore, the Alabama Senate Republican candidate who has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct. For the Senate to advocate Franken's removal would be hard politically, given the similar allegations swirling around President Trump, some of which are now in active litigation.

Hollywood reaction has been split over Franken.
