A Los Angeles radio host accused Sen. Al Franken of forcibly kissing and groping her during a 2006 USO tour, several years before Franken’s election to the Senate. Earlier this year Franken spoke on the Senate floor about the sexual misconduct allegations hurled at former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes and others, and in 2010 Franken discussed his USO work with his accuser, Leeann Tweeden.
