Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell responds as Al Franken sexual abuse accusations explode on social media…

Fresh accusations of “groping” and “forcible kissing” allegedly committed by Democratic Senator Al Franken against a news reporter have lit a fire on social media.

Sports commentator Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of groping her “without my consent” during a USO tour of Vietnam in Dec 2006.

She provided photo evidence of the assault on social media.


“How dare anyone grab my breasts like this and think it’s funny?” Tweeden said.

Al Franken trended on Twitter in the top spot after the accusation, but we’ll see how long the social media giant — and others like it — allow it to trend.

The comedian-turned-Senator made a lame response:

The accusation has led many to point a giant finger at Republican leadership, Democratic politicians, and supposedly objective journalists, who want the Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to drop out of the race due to his own accusations, which are based largely on the claims of witnesses.

However, Mitch McConnell has responded.

“As with all credible allegations of sexual harassment or assault, I believe the Ethics Committee should review the matter. I hope the Democratic Leader will join me on this,” McConnell said. “Regardless of party, harassment and assault are completely unacceptable—in the workplace or anywhere else.”

In all the left’s fury over Roy Moore accusations, they forgot about one name: Joe Biden
