Al Franken: ‘I Don’t Know’ If There Will Be More Groping Allegations Against Me

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) said he “[doesn’t] know, I can’t say” if more women will publicly accuse him of having groped them. Franken said he was “embarrassed and ashamed” after four women accused him of sexual misconduct. He said while he “respected” the feelings of the women who have made allegations against him, he said he does not remember the encounters. “I take photographs at the State Fair with thousands of people,” he told Minnesota Public Radio. “I would never intentionally” grope anyone. But “we have to listen to women and respect what they say.”
