The list keeps growing.
Last week, a damning photo came out depicting Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) of groping a fellow SNL cast member named Leann Tweeden. Tweeden released the photo to the media and went on the record numerous times depicting Franken as a sexual harasser of disgusting proportions.
Now, Lindsey Menz, 33, reached out to CNN on Thursday with her story.
She shared a story of when she was with Franken at the 2010 Minnesota State Fair. The incident occurred when he took a picture with her. “[He] pulled me really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear,” Menz told CNN. “It was wrapped tightly around my butt.
On Sunday, Franken commented that he did not recall the counter, but was “sorry” she felt “disrespected.”
“I take thousands of photos at the state fair surrounded by hundreds of people, and I certainly don’t remember taking this picture. I feel badly that Ms. Menz came away from our interaction feeling disrespected.”
“I felt gross. It’d be like being walking through the mall and some random person grabbing your butt,” Lindsay Menz said. “You just feel gross. Like ew, I want to wash that off of me.”
Her husband, Jeremy Menz, who took the picture in question, said that he saw Franken pull her in very close.
Afterwards, the couple walked away, and Lindsey said “He totally grabbed my butt.”
“I was upset. I wasn’t happy about it in the least,” Jeremy Menz said. “He was already gone and I wasn’t going to confront him. But yeah — I was in shock, really.”
The newest revelation will join Tweeden’s in a solid case file being opened on Franken by the Senate Ethics Committee.

The sad part is, nothing will come of it.
The Senate Ethics Committee has no teeth. For evidence, look no further than the fact that the committee has had over 600 hearings on serious charges over the last 5 years – there were no convictions or punishments for ANY of them.
In fact, Franken actually called for an ethics committee investigation of himself – a call which was echoed by the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and virtually all other Democratic colleagues in the senate.
Why? Because there it can get buried and forgotten, no Democrat actually wants Franken to walk before his term is done.
But, we’ll see.
We’ll see if the Democratic Party actually has some morals that remain to them. We’ll see if Linsey Menz and Leann Tweeden can see some justice. But, so far, all we’ve seen is hypocrisy from the left.
We’ve seen moral outcries calling for Roy Moore to not be seated if he wins his election.
In the same breath, we see Democrats FINALLY condemning Bill Clinton only after he’s become politically irrelevant.
Moments later, the Franken story breaks, and rather than immediately call for his resignation, they wait for the Ethics committee to do their job.
Of course, if Franken were a Republican, Democrats would be screaming for him to resign.
