When her sister observed how close together she and Franken were posing, Menz responded: "Dude - Al Franken TOTALLY molested me!"

A new woman has come forward with an allegation against Sen.

A second woman came forward to accuse Democratic Sen.

Former model Leeann Tweeden, who participated in USO tours alongside Franken in the early 2000s, claimed last week the then-comedian forcibly kissed and later groped her while she was sleeping in 2006. He said last week that he supports a Senate Ethics Committee investigation into the Tweeden allegations.

While Menz was at the Minnesota State Fair with her husband in the summer of 2010, she told CNN that she posed with Franken while her husband snapped a photo. He added: "He reached around her and kind of pulled her into him. 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 ...

"I was like, 'oh my God, what's happening'".

According to Menz, the incident with Franken happened in a booth inside a state fair sponsored by her father, the Guardian reports.

In a response, Franken said yesterday, "I take thousands of photos at the state fair surrounded by hundreds of people, and I certainly don't remember taking this picture". "And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed".

"It'd be like being walking through the mall and some random person grabbing your butt", she explained.

Although she and her husband voted for Donald Trump in November, Menz said neither is registered with a political party and have voted for both Democrats and Republicans in the past.

Franken's office says that the senator has no recollection about his interaction with Menz, but it said that he felt sorry that she came away from their interaction feeling disrespected.

She said a friend encouraged her to talk to CNN. Menz said that after the incident with Franken, she met Representative John Kline, who asked if they should "mutually put our arms around each other", a different case from Franken.

Menz' Twitter account says she lived in Minneapolis. "Like 'Ew, I want to wash that off of me'". Al Franken, a Minnesota Democrat, of groping her buttocks during a 2010 photo op, CNN reported.
