A former staffer for Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) told New York magazine that she was groped by former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) at an event in 2006.
She said that when it was her turn to be photographed with Franken, “he puts his hand on my ass. He’s telling the photographer, ‘Take another one. I think I blinked. Take another one.’ And I’m just frozen. It’s so violating. And then he gives me a little squeeze on my buttock, and I am bright red. I don’t say anything at the time, but I felt deeply, deeply uncomfortable.”
