Well, this is getting very interesting.
Today Leeann Tweeden, morning news anchor for LA’s KABC’s TalkRadio, dropped a bombshell about US Senator Al Franken that included this photograph.
According to Leeann Tweeden, in December 2006 Franken joined her as part of a USO tour of the Middle East.
And he behaved like a pig.
In describing the above photo, Tweeden wrote:
The tour wrapped and on Christmas Eve we began the 36-hour trip home to L.A. After 2 weeks of grueling travel and performing I was exhausted. When our C-17 cargo plane took off from Afghanistan I immediately fell asleep, even though I was still wearing my flak vest and Kevlar helmet.
It wasn’t until I was back in the US and looking through the CD of photos we were given by the photographer that I saw this one.
I couldn’t believe it. He groped me, without my consent, while I was asleep.
I felt violated all over again. Embarrassed. Belittled. Humiliated.
Now, I’m trying to muster up the energy to be shocked. But it just isn’t coming.
And that picture wasn’t the only pervy thing Franken did on this USO tour.
Tweeden also recounts how Franken forced her to “rehearse” kissing him.
He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.
I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time.
I walked away. All I could think about was getting to a bathroom as fast as possible to rinse the taste of him out of my mouth.
And when Tweeden made a point of avoiding him for the remainder of the tour, Franken took to badgering her, insulting her.
It was only after forcing his tongue in her mouth and insulting her that Franken posed for that pervy picture.
What a prince of a guy.
So how about it, Mitch McConnell?
Will you demand that Al Franken be unseated?
I won’t hold my breath.
