A Ninth Woman Has Now Come Forward To Accuse Former Senator Al Franken Of Groping Her

The bad news just keeps coming for Al Franken.

The former Democrat Senator of Minnesota had to step down last year amid multiple accusations of sexual harassment at the height of the #MeToo movement.

Now, months later, as Franken has been inching his way back into public life, a ninth woman has now come forward.

Ninth Woman Accuses Al Franken of Groping Her

A ninth woman is alleging former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) groped her while she was working on Capitol Hill, a new report states.

According to The Cut, the woman, who requested to remain anonymous, alleges the incident occurred while she was working as a staffer for Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) in 2006. The alleged victim says Frankin put his hand on her behind as the pair took a photograph together.

“He’s telling the photographer, ‘Take another one. I think I blinked. Take another one.’ And I’m just frozen. It’s so violating. And then he gives me a little squeeze on my buttock, and I am bright red. I don’t say anything at the time, but I felt deeply, deeply uncomfortable,” she said.

Further, The Cut reports that the woman “spoke to three individuals in whom she had confided after the first Franken accusations emerged; she says that she did not tell anyone about the incident after it happened out of embarrassment.”

Lots of people are talking about this on Twitter and the left is very torn on the issue:

It’s probably safe to assume at this point that Franken will not be running for public office again.

Politically, he is now damaged goods.
