The woman said that while she and the senator posed for a photo, Franken "put his hand full-fledged on my rear". He is the latest prominent figure to face allegations of sexual misconduct, as a flood of women have come forward to describe harassment and abuse across all industries.
When she met Franken, she said she had a short exchange with the senator and lined up with him to take a photo. If the Senate Ethics Committee moves forward with its investigation - a probe that Franken has endorsed and agreed to assist - it may therefore be treated differently.
Franken was accused by Leeann Tweeden, a radio host, last week of groping her chest when she slept and forcefully kissing her while the two were on a USO tour together in 2006. "I feel badly that Ms. Menz came away from our interaction feeling disrespected".
The letter-signers include female SNL producers, writers, cast and crew who acknowledged Franken's "foolish" actions in regard to Tweeden, but say they only knew the former comedian as a devoted family man. She added, "It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek".

I take thousands of photos at the state fair surrounded by hundreds of people, and I certainly don't remember taking this picture. He hasn't appeared in public since Tweeden's allegation.
The claims have resulted in renewed calls for the senator's resignation, as this incident occurred while Franken was in office. The photographic evidence of his alleged groping is troubling, although it appears that Franken is merely pretending to grope Tweeden, and is not actually touching her. Tweeden was wearing a kevlar vest over a heavy jacket at the time of the photograph.
