A new allegation of improper behavior has been brought against former Minnesota U.S. Sen. Al Franken. A former Capitol Hill staffer tells New York magazine that he touched her inappropriately in 2006, two years before he was elected. Franken announced his resignation from the Senate in 2017 after being accused of forcible kissing and groping. The new allegation was made just as Franken was returning to more public visibility and just days after he made his late-night return and debuted his new radio show. Last week, Franken appeared on the Conan O’Brien Show making some of his most public comments to date about resigning from Congress after other unwanted touching allegations surfaced. Franken said he ‘absolutely’ regrets resigning from Senate and that he should have had “due process.”
