2nd Woman Accuses Franken of Inappropriate Touching

(CN) — A second woman came forward on Monday to accuse Minnesota Sen. Al Franken of inappropriate touching.

In an appearance on CNN, Lindsay Menz said Franken placed his hand on her bottom as they posed for a photo at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010 — two years into Franken’s first term.

Menz said she immediately told her husband that Franken had “grabbed” her, and that the incident made her feel “gross.”

Franken responded to the CNN report by saying he didn’t remember taking the photo with Menz, but that he feels badly that she felt disrespected.

Last week, Leeann Tweeden, a Los Angles broadcaster, accused Franken last week of forcibly kissing her and of taking a photograph of him reaching for her breasts as she slept during a USO tour in 2006, also before he was elected to the U.S. Senate.

Franken immediately issued an apology and said he will fully cooperate with a Senate ethics investigation.
