New Allegations Against Sen Franken 06 Dec 17

(Learfield News Service) New allegations of sexual harassment are being reported regarding Senator Al Franken. 

A woman tells Politico that Franken tried to forcibly kiss her after recording his radio show in 2006–three years before Franken took office.

The woman, who is not identified in the story, is reportedly a former Democratic congressional aid and was in her 20s when the incident is alleged to have happened.

She says Franken told her of the attempted kiss “it’s my right as an entertainer.”

Franken calls the allegation “categorically not true.”

Franken is currently cooperating with an ethics committee investigation of his behavior related to several previous allegations of sexual misconduct.
