Two additional woman accuse Franken of groping

Two more women have come forward with accusations that Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) groped them during photo opportunities.

HuffPost reported Wednesday night that two women, who spoke under conditions of anonymity for fear of retribution, said that Franken groped them during campaign events for his initial run for Senate in 2008.

“My story is eerily similar to Lindsay Menz’s story,” the first woman said, referring to a woman who said last week that Franken groped her at the Minnesota State Fair. “He grabbed my buttocks during a photo op.”

”I saw him and asked if we could take a photo together for my mother, and we stood next to each other," she added. "And down his hand went.”

The second woman says that Franken performed a similar act, then suggested the two find a "bathroom," presumably for sex.

“My immediate reaction was disgust,” the second woman told HuffPost. “But my secondary reaction was disappointment. I was excited to be there and to meet him. And so to have that happen really deflated me. It felt like: ‘Is this really the person who is going to be in a position of power to represent our community?’”

Franken responded in a statement to HuffPost by saying that it was difficult to respond to anonymous allegations, and that he doesn't remember the described events.

“It’s difficult to respond to anonymous accusers, and I don’t remember those campaign events," Franken's statement read.

It's starting to look like a pattern of behavior. It's not molesting an underage girl or admitting to sexual assault, but it's bad enough to warrant some sort of consequence.

......and while our government is assuring ANOTHER massive transfer of America’s wealth to the upper tier, we obsess over pols and wealthy “movers and shakers” who have sexual abuse issues.

Of course, pedophilia is a problem.......though, I’m quite sure Judge Moore will be the Senator from America’s shameful “religious” underbelly where it’s acceptable behavior.

Oy.
