A woman says Senator Al Franken snuck a feel behind her back as her husband took their picture.
So, the question is, Did Senator Al Franken really do it?
Part of the answer would be found by investigating the accuser’s character. Is she a known liar? Is she a Republican political operative?
Another part of the answer will be found by Senator Al Franken’s character. Is he the kind of person who would grab a woman’s privates without her consent?
While we know nothing bad about the woman, we have photographic evidence that Franken with put his hand on a woman’s breasts while she’s asleep. That was before he was a Senator. But why would his character change just because he gained power?
CNN reports, “Woman says Franken inappropriately touched her in 2010.”
Then, as her husband held up her phone and got ready to snap a photo of the two of them, Franken “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. “It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek.”
“It wasn’t around my waist. It wasn’t around my hip or side. It was definitely on my butt,” she said, recalling that the brazen act lasted three or four seconds. “I was like, oh my God, what’s happening.”
“He reached around her and kind of pulled her into him,” said her husband Jeremy Menz, who didn’t see what happened behind his wife. “He pulled her in and pushed his head against her head. It was over pretty quick.”
Lindsay Menz told CNN that she walked away as soon as the photo was taken, without saying anything to the then-first term senator. When she reconnected with her husband moments later, she told him: “He totally grabbed my butt.” Jeremy Menz described that conversation the same way to CNN.[…]
Menz’s father, Mark Brown, was also in the radio booth that day but didn’t witness the moment. But he told CNN that his daughter told him about the incident right away.
Menz’s mother, Jodi Brown, also told CNN that she discussed the incident with her daughter immediately after it happened. She said she distinctly recalls her son-in-law saying to her: “Our senator just groped my wife right in front of me.”
