It was only a matter of ticks on the clock. A second Al Franken victim has come forward detailing her not so fun day at a state fair where she was groped by the sexualizing senator. If it wasn’t for her age, we might think this whole conundrum was a “creepy-clown at a carnival” story, courtesy of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Want a lolly, little girl?
Here’s how the creeping happened:
Lindsay Menz, a 33-year-old woman who now lives in Frisco, Texas, reached out to CNN on Thursday hours after Tweeden made her story public. Menz said she wanted to share an “uncomfortable” interaction that left her feeling “gross.”
Al Franken walked into a booth Menz and her family were managing. She recognized the Senator and wanted a pic for her Facebook. She did not want a pic on her buttocks.
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.”
“I was upset. I wasn’t happy about it in the least,” Jeremy Menz said. “He was already gone and I wasn’t going to confront him. But yeah — I was in shock, really.
So Franken is an even bigger creep than we initially thought. And possibly a serial butt-grabber. Friendly reminder: this is the same Al Franken who lectured Republicans about sexual harassment. It’s also the same Franken currently being defended by “pro-woman” leftists (see Chris Matthews Defends Al Franken: ‘He was just satirizing her…’).
Hope you like hypocrisy. There’s plenty more on its way.
