The accusations against Roy Moore may end up sinking his race for U.S. Senate.
And the Democrats have spent nearly every minute of their time pushing the story.
But one Democrat just had a sexual misconduct accusation dropped on him, and the shocking picture released with it may be the proof needed to bring him down.
Leeann Tweeden, a journalist with TalkRadio 790 KABC in Los Angeles, California, just dropped accusations against Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) of fondling her while she was asleep and shoving his tongue down her throat without consent.
As reported by Breitbart:
“Leeann Tweeden, a journalist who anchors the morning news at TalkRadio 790 KABC in Los Angeles, California, is accusing Senator Al Franken (D-MN) of fondling her while asleep and shoving his tongue down her throat without her consent.
At the time, December of 2006, Tweeden had a boyfriend (who is now her husband) and was on a two week USO Tour with the then-55-year-old Franken and others. Included in her article is a photograph that clearly shows the Democrat Senator grabbing her breasts while she is asleep.
According to Tweeden, the unwanted kiss occurred during rehearsal for a USO skit. She believes Franken (who was married) intentionally wrote a skit for the two of them so he would have an excuse to kiss her, something she did not want to do. She says that Franken insisted they rehearse until it got uncomfortable and she relented. This is when she alleges he “aggressively” shoved his tongue in her mouth:
‘He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.
I immediately pushed him away with both of my hands against his chest and told him if he ever did that to me again I wouldn’t be so nice about it the next time. I walked away. All I could think about was getting to a bathroom as fast as possible to rinse the taste of him out of my mouth.
I felt disgusted and violated.’”
One thing that separates this accusation from the one against Judge Roy Moore is that there is picture proof.
A picture has been released showing Sen. Franken grabbing the breasts of the accuser.
One must wonder how Democrats will respond to this accusation.
A major difference between the Moore accusation and this one is the fact that Sen. Franken is not currently in the middle of an election.
It will be difficult for Democrats to try to claim that this is a smear, as the timing does not make that an easy argument to make.
And already, more rumors of other victims are coming out, as was tweeted out earlier today.
I've already heard about a second Al Franken victim.
