New groping allegation against US Senator Al Franken

20 November 2017

Menz reached out to CNN with her story shortly after Tweeden's allegations became public.

"I couldn't believe it", she said, regarding her reaction to seeing the photo. This is the first allegation of sexual impropriety facing Franken as a sitting senator. I was like, oh my God, what's happening ...

"I felt gross. It'd be like being walking through the mall and some random person grabbing your butt", Lindsay Menz said. Menz said she had a brief and cordial exchange with the senator. But he told CNN that his daughter told him about the incident right away. I took the picture it was a amusing moment everyone was smiling having a good time.

The allegations against Franken come as the Republican Party is grappling with allegations of sexual assault and other misconduct against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, ahead of a December 12 special election. She told the network of her "uncomfortable" interaction with Franken that made her feel "gross". "I told a few of the others on the tour what Franken had done, and they knew how I felt about it".

In 2014, Menz and her family moved to Texas and have publicly supported both Democrats and Republicans with her husband favoring Republicans.
