A ninth woman is alleging former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) groped her while she was working on Capitol Hill, a new report states.
According to The Cut, the woman, who requested to remain anonymous, alleges the incident occurred while she was working as a staffer for Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) in 2006. The alleged victim says Frankin put his hand on her behind as the pair took a photograph together.
Further, The Cut reports that the woman “spoke to three individuals in whom she had confided after the first Franken accusations emerged; she says that she did not tell anyone about the incident after it happened out of embarrassment.”
The woman, who now works at an unnamed progressive organization, said she opted against telling her story due to fears that it could hinder her career prospects in Democrat circles. read more
