Al Franken's new accuser says he groped her on USO tour

Al Franken's new accuser says he groped her on USO tour

Earlier this week Franken said he was "tremendously sorry" for his behavior and vowed to never repeat the actions that led multiple women to accuse him of sexual misconduct. The first, radio personality Leeann Tweeden, provided the media with a photo that shows Franken mugging for the camera while groping her breast while she slept.

Kemplin, 41, of OH, is the fifth woman to come forward with claims against the now Minnesota senator, and the second to allege the inappropriate behavior took place during a USO tour.

According to Stephanie Kemplin, Franken groped her breast while he was on a USO tour of the Middle East in 2003. The touching lasted 5-10 seconds before she shifted her body to move his hand, she told CNN. She adds, referring to the women who say Franken groped them during photo ops: "The other women's accounts of him grabbing their buttocks in front of their mothers and husbands, I believe them".

Roy Moore says liberal, LGBTQ 'conspiracy' to blame for sex abuse allegations
Moore wrote: "If you want to mock our Christian values, come down here to Alabama and do it man to man". There is nothing religious or Godly about a grown man taking advantage of young girls.

She provided CNN a photo of the encounter, which does not show the contact from Franken she describes.

The reporter who broke the story, MJ Lee, tweeted that she "lost count of how many times she (Kemplin) cried in our many conversations". Was he going to move his hand? Tweeden released a photo showing the comedian turned senator posing in a joking manner with his hands on her chest as she naps wearing a flak vest aboard a military plane.

The second woman claimed that Franken grabbed her behind in 2008 at a Democratic fundraiser. "So he was holding my breast on the side", Kemplin said. "He never moved his hand". Franken made clear this week, he takes thousands of photos and has met tens of thousands of people and he has never intentionally engaged in this kind of conduct. "He remains fully committed to cooperating with the ethics investigation", the statement said.

"I was stunned and incredulous. I felt demeaned. I felt put in my place", she told Jezebel about the alleged incident.

Franken has said he could not rule out the possibility that more women might come forward, insisting that he has posed for thousands of photos over his career.
