A second woman is coming forward with allegations that Democratic Senator Al Franken “stalked and harassed” her.
The accusations come after sports commentator Leeann Tweeden sent shockwaves throughout the media by accusing Franken of groping her “without my consent.” The incident allegedly occurred during a USO tour of Vietnam in December 2006.
Tweeden also sent visual evidence of Franken’s “groping,” and added that he also violated her through “forcible kissing.”
“How dare anyone grab my breasts like this and think it’s funny?” she said.
Franken issued a response:
NEW Stmt from @SenFranken: “I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann.”

After that Senate Majority Leader McConnell announced a new ethics investigation.
“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.”
Now, fresh accusations appear to be looming for Senator Franken.
Former radio host Melanie Morgan stated that she will be coming forward with her own accusations against Franken soon.
Morgan, who is also a journalist for Media Equalizer, said on Twitter:
“Yes, it’s true. I was stalked and harassed by Al Franken. I will have details
We will have to stay tuned for her full statement, which will be updated here as it is made public. In the meantime, Morgan had the following retweet:
It looks like the Congressional Ethics Committee will be having even more to investigate soon.
UPDATE: Melania Morgan has reaffirmed her earlier charges.
