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.
