It appears that Lee Ann Tweeden has done some groping of her own! Pot, meet kettle.

Explained by Linnster...

Tweeden_butt_grab.jpg LeeAnn Tweeden getting in a good feel  RSS REBLOGGED BY Recommended TAGS #AlFranken #groping #Innocent #SexualHarassment #LeeannTweeden When it comes to Al Franken, you might note that his accuser, LeeAnn Tweeden, was found in video, on stage, grabbing the posterior of a male guitarist at the same USO tour in 2006. Who was she made to apologize to for her behavior, or do we just accept this? https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/11/20/1717322/-AL-FRANKEN-INNOCENT

Yeah, and this is why some men use that double standards argument and condemnation so often about women accusing men of sexual misconduct. There is often a different reaction, when a woman touches a man in a way that some women make a big deal about.

I do not think what now Senator Franken allegedly did to her in the skit rehearsal is 'okay' at all, if he did "cram" his tongue into her mouth.
Neither do I think what I've heard so far, is confirmed so-called sexual misconduct enough for him to be removed from office.

So let me get this straight. LeeannTweeden spends her time on stage on a USO tour rubbing her **** all over men and grabbing their butts but then gets all insulted when Al Franken grabs a kiss?

The whole double standard with this seems to be because most men wouldn't reject the sexual advances of an averagely attractive woman while most women would reject the sexual advances of men.

She didn't seem to mind it all those years from 2006 until it became the rage to accuse someone of groping. Franken may have been wrong, but she would have been smarter to keep her mouth shut.

Kissing a woman during a skit, no matter how unsavory it was, and taking a distasteful photo, is a far cry from seeking out young girls, when a man is an adult. Or using money, power and threats of lawsuits to sexually mistreat women.
That being said...franken should be ashamed of himself. If his position is taken, he has only himself to blame.

what's changed?
something has changed

new charges of sexual assault from four women, according to highly placed Democratic Party sources and an official who served in both the Clinton and Obama administrations.


Attorneys representing the women, who are coordinating their efforts, have notified Clinton they are preparing to file four separate lawsuits against him.

As part of the ongoing negotiations, the attorneys for the women are asking for substantial payouts in return for their clients’ silence.

A member of Clinton’s legal team has confirmed the existence of the new allegations.

It's hard to be unbiased when Franken is such a pig in the first place.
He only got in office because of some "found votes" in the trunk of someone's car. Funny that they all were for him and put him in office. In my opinion, that seat was stolen and he should never have been in office at all. His pattern would lend itself to the accusations of several women - so far.

Just curious.... how many people here who are complaining about happened "on stage" at a USO tour have actually BEEN to a USO show? The people who do these shows, sometimes do more than one a day. Almost EVERY aspect of these shows is rehearsed. Also, a little grab ** is also often "part of the show", and generally it is a woman who is grabbing the **. (It's written that way because the audience is mostly men, and it is meant to elicit a response of, "I wish she was doing that to me."
Look at ALL the USO shows back to WWII. Bob Hope and the beautiful women, famous actors and actresses.... "putting on a show."

I’ve never been to USO show but I have the same question as JimColo: if this is happening on stage, how do we know it wasn’t staged? (I’d say the same thing if it were a man grabbing a female guitarist). My point is: there’s a difference between something that happens as part of a show and something that happens to someone unsolicited and unwanted (let alone when they are asleep).

The Daily Kos seems not to have told the whole story behind the picture they published in your link. Yes, Tweeden apparently initiated the contact, but it was certainly not rejected; far from it, in fact, judging from the big smile on the guitarist's face. (biggrin)

Well, Linn, I didn't say it was necessarily ok, just that it wasn't surprising. And don't forget, she initiated the episode. I mean, if you started rhythmically bumping your butt against a handsome guy, would you be surprised if he grabbed it?

As for her 15 minutes of fame, no I hadn't heard of Tweeden before, but I have heard a number of theories of why she came forward at this time. One of them is that she did it to distract some of the heat away from Roy Moore in Alabama.

So I don't know what her real motivation was, and I doubt that you really do either. (biggrin)

Well, you see, that's the double standard that exists and why some people may be confused as to the meaning of what some folks do. Tweeden should have been taken to task for initiating a sexual overture to the guitarist. That he responded in kind, is almost irrelevant. Who knows if Tweeden flirted with a whole lot of guys on that tour, possibly even including Franken? We don't know and probably never will. Nor will we ever know what was in her mind when she called out Franken. :)

P.S. Do we even know that Franken shoved his tongue down her throat? To be honest, had I been the one in the photo where he was holding his hands in front of her tatas, I would not have been offended - certainly not enough to cause this much fuss ten years later.

In response to “Well, you see, that's the double standard...

Yes, there is a double standard, but women make such overt physical moves far less than men do.

And whoever does it, there is a protocol of not going too far too soon. A flirtatious suggestion can be made by a comment, glance or touch, but it should be discreet, and if rejected, that should be the end of it.

I haven't looked up the details again, but if my recollection of the allegation against Franken is correct, he shoved his tongue into her mouth when they were rehearsing for a staged kiss for a skit, to which Tweeden objected. It is my understanding that the photo was taken in "revenge" for the rejection, and as far as I know, Franken has not denied the tongue episode, which I think you will agree was definitely over the line, if as described.

Yes, there is a fine line between what is acceptable and what may not be and by whom. There are really too many things we don't know about these incidents that might change the public perception. The fact that fewer women grope men doesn't really make it any better, does it? Really, the only two people who know how far Franken's tongue went into her mouth are the two of them. As for the photo, I don't know if it was revenge. The first time I looked at it, I thought it was amusing - after all, someone was there to take the photo, she's wearing a flak vest, his hands seem to be barely touching her ... I'm sure, as he said, it seemed funnier at the time.
