New Al Franken accuser comes forward, says the senator touched her inappropriately

Woman says Al Franken grabbed her butt in 2010 while he was in office

Menz said Franken grabbed her butt during a 2010 photo-op at the Minnesota State Fair, making her feel "gross" and "uncomfortable". 36 women from the show signed a letter noting that he erred in his treatment of Leeann Tweeden, but that the women from SNL had been treated with "the utmost respect and regard" during his time on the show.

Tweeden claims that Franken sexually harassed and assaulted her on a number of occasions during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006.

A second woman has come forward to accuse Sen.

The Senator, aged 66, said he did not remember taking the photo with Menz, but felt badly that she felt disrespected.

Once someone is accused of sexual misconduct, there are a series of important questions that immediately follow, including the number of accusers.

Menz told CNN she saw Franken at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010, at a time he was a senator.

Second wind advisory in effect
Winds could gust over 45 miles per hour tomorrow which could lead to tree limbs coming down as well as scattered power outages. The National Weather Service in Huntsville has issued a wind advisory that's in effect until 9 p.m.

Thirty-six women signed the SNL statement supporting the Democrat, including performers Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman, and many behind-the-scenes staff.

That said, this incident, unlike Tweeden's, occurred after Franken's election. "And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed".

The 66-year-old former comic apologized to Menz if he made her feel "disrespected".

Franken's statements have been contrite. "Like he nearly can't remember doing it or not, and I think that he himself knows, and if he did do this in fact, he really does need to resign, because we should have a zero tolerance policy for this, just like we do in the military for sexual assault". She added, "It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek".

CNN reported that Menz shared the photo of her and Franken on Facebook that same day, and her sister commented and joked that Menz and Franken weren't two "Bibles width apart".

She said she didn't say anything to the senator but later told her husband and father soon after, as the two men confirmed to CNN. I strongly condemn this behavior and the Senate Ethics Committee must open an investigation.
