Another woman is accusing the “honorable” Senator from Minnesota of getting a bit handsy with her.
And this accusation didn’t happen when Handsy Franken was “just a comedian.”
Lindsay Menz met Senator Franken at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010. And while her husband snapped a picture of the two, Menz alleges that Al’s hand wrapped “tightly around my butt cheek.”
And if that isn’t bad enough, Handsy Franken’s statement to CNN is downright bizarre.
“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.”
He feels “badly.”
I don’t mean to be the Grammar Police, Al. But if you are describing feeling regret, then you feel “bad” — not “badly.”
But, given the fact that you were copping a feel, maybe “badly” is the right word for you to use. Because you definitely behaved badly.
Is it just me or does anybody else interpret that statement to mean “I grab so many asses during photos at the State Fair, that I just can’t be expected to remember all of them.”
I read that statement at the New York Post and it made me think of this scene from “Gilmore Girls.”
Rory discovers that Luke hired a boy she knew in junior high who dissected a frog and then didn’t wash his hands before eating a sandwich.
Rory Gilmore. Um, we went to school together.
You don’t remember. Biology – the frog?
There’ve been a lot of frogs, man.
Maybe Al doesn’t remember getting handsy with Lindsay Menz’s butt because “there’ve been a lot of butts, man.”
Now, to be fair. Unlike Leeann Tweeden’s photograph, the one of Menz and Handsy Al does not show the placement of his hand.
Which is fortunate for Franken.
Because now he can simply play dumb and say “I don’t recall.”
But it’s hard not to take some pleasure in watching the Democrats swing from the gallows they constructed for Republicans.
And it gives me the same evil pleasure as I get watching this:
