Woman Accuses Al Franken of Groping Her While Posing For Photo

She said he "pulled me in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear".

Menz said that while she believes that Franken's alleged groping of radio anchor Leeann Tweeden was much worse, "the reason I want to say something is if someone sees that I said something, maybe it would give them the courage to say something too".

Franken wrote in his apology to Tweeden, "I am asking that an ethics investigation be undertaken, and I will gladly cooperate". Also, Lindsay Menz said Monday that Franken grabbed her buttocks while taking a photo at the Minnesota State Fair.

Franken said he didn't remember taking the photo but that he felt "badly" that Menz felt disrespected.

Menz described the interaction to CNN as "uncomfortable" and that it made her feel "gross".

Franken, for his part, has issued a statement not unlike his remarks regarding Tweeden.
