Accuser: Franken said it was his 'right' to kiss me

Accuser: Franken said it was his 'right' to kiss me”

Another woman is accusing Sen. And she says Franken told her: "It's my right as an entertainer".

"He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me".

The accuser claims that she ducked to avoid the encounter with Franken, but as she left the former "Saturday Night Live" writer and performer made a comment she remembers.

"I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it toward the door and he said, 'It's my right as an entertainer'".

The former aide told Politico that she was at a taping of Franken's radio show and was about to follow her boss out of the room when Franken came after her.

In a statement sent Wednesday to the Star Tribune, Franken called this allegation "categorically not true and the idea that I would claim this as my right as an entertainer is preposterous".

Two former colleagues of the former Democratic aide said that she told them about the incident and confirmed her account to Politico.

Franken has agreed to cooperate with the Senate Ethics Committee investigation into his behavior.

Franken denies the woman's accusation. Gwyneth Paltrow says Weinstein lied about sleeping with her to pressure other actresses to have sex with him.

Lindsay Menz, 33, of Frisco, Texas, told CNN last month she was groped by Franken in 2010 at the Minnesota State Fair.

The allegations against Franken began in mid-November when Los Angeles radio anchor Leeann Tweeden accused him of forcibly kissing her during a 2006 USO tour.

She also said it bothered her to see Franken in 2016 condemning then-candidate Donald Trump after the Access Hollywood tape came out. He is now under a Senate ethics review for his behavior, which he said he will "fully" cooperate with. Several other women have since accused Franken of grabbing their butts at photo-ops or events.

Instead, the woman says she wants Franken to admit that he behaved this was on objective, telling Politico, "I think for this moment in time to lead to meaningful change there has to be more than "I'm ashamed but I remember things differently" accounting".
