Al Franken is responding to another sexual misconduct allegation made against him after a woman told POLITICO he tried to forcibly kiss her following a taping of his radio show in 2006. "It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like 'Wait, what is happening?' But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked", the woman told Politico.
The former staffer ducked to avoid Franken's lips.
The alleged incident took place two years before Franken was elected to the Senate.
This is the seventh woman to accuse the Minnesota Democrat of trying to forcibly kiss or grope her. Ms. Rehal said she had to keep a supply of the shots at her desk, dispense them to him in brown paper bags and sometimes deliver the medication to hotels and elsewhere before his meetings with women.
She says that Franken said "it's my right as an entertainer" as she was leaving the room.
She said she was gathering her belongings to follow her boss out of the room, the Politico report continued, and she turned around to find Franken in her face. He is now under a Senate ethics review for his behavior, which he said he will "fully" cooperate with.
Franken said the allegation is "categorically not true" and the idea he would say it was his "right" to kiss her is "preposterous".
She also said it bothered her to see Franken in 2016 condemning then-candidate Donald Trump after the Access Hollywood tape came out.
"When it really started impacting me in more of a "I'm really angry about about this" way was last fall when the Trump tape came out", she told Politico.
In November, Los Angeles radio anchor Leeann Tweeden said Franken had put his tongue in her mouth during a 2006 USO tour, before he became senator.
Franken has apologized for his behavior but he has disputed some of the allegations.
As the accusations against Franken have accumulated, the number of women on a list publicly supporting him has grown. Kristin Gillibrand, who just reversed her previous partnership with Bill Clinton by saying he should have resigned in 1997, won't offer the same advice to Franken.
