  • Two Minnesota state lawmakers to resign after sexual misconduct allegations

Earlier this week, a CNN report said another woman accused Franken of inappropriately grabbing her during a photo op in 2010.

Senator Angus King says there's no excuse for the behavior Senator Al Franken and candidate Roy Moore are accused of.

TV and radio anchor Leeann Tweeden published a photo showing a grinning Franken grasping at her clothed breasts while she slept aboard a plane returning from a 2006 USO tour she did with Franken. Al Franken (Minn.) to resign, liberal New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg walked back her comments and said she was torn on the issue.

Lindsay Menz told CNN that the interaction made her feel "gross".

When asked if Franken will be effective if he stays in office, 32 percent of those polled said he would be, while 37 percent said he would not be effective and 32 percent said they were not sure. Both men affirmed that to CNN. Menz also said she posted the photo with Franken on Facebook on August 27, and when her sister commented on the photo, she replied: "Dude - Al Franken TOTALLY molested me!"

The AP was not able to immediately view her account to verify the post.
