In a case of “Here we Go Again: this time its a Democratic Senator All Franken.

Franken is being accused and has admitted guilty to kissing and groping a Los Angeles model and now radio announcer named Leeann Tweeden.

Ms. Tweeden said that Senator Franken forcibly kissed her, stuck his tongue in her mouth and groping her during a 2006 USO tour. He is the first member of Congress caught up in the recent wave of allegations of sexual abuse and inappropriate behavior.

Senator Franken has apologized for the incident that happened many years ago, and Leeann Tweeden has accepted that apology.

Leeann Tweeden posted her allegations, including a photo of Senator Franken and her, on the website of KABC, where she works as a news anchor for a morning radio show.

Tweeden said Thursday that before an earlier show Franken had persisted in rehearsing a kiss and “aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.” Now, she said, “every time I hear his voice or see his face, I am angry.” She’s angry with herself, too, she said, for not speaking out at the time “but I didn’t want to rock the boat.”
