Remember how politicians climbed up on their high horses when the Bill Cosby scandal broke out and more recently the Harvey Weinstein scandal? Yeah, I knew then, what they could not see……pandora’s box of secrets was about to be opened…..in every industry. Now I’m not saying that one case of sexual abuse is any more acceptable than another. They’re all disgusting. What I’m saying is, politicians used sexual abuse scandals to begin throwing around “holier than thou” statements. That would be fine, if most of them didn’t have some dirty laundry hidden somewhere in their closets. And I’m willing to bet that most of them do. This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. This is an issue of abuse of power. Who really thought that politicians didn’t abuse their power to try to get what they wanted? In most cases, I believe this was one of the main reasons most of them wanted to be politicians. I still say, just like in the movies, information will eventually come out about a politician who raped, and killed a prostitute, and then had his security team make the dead woman’s body disappear.
USA Today (@usatoday) reports, tv host and sportscaster, Leeann Tweeden accused Democratic Senator Al Franken of kissing and groping her without her consent when she was on a tour of the Middle East to entertain U.S. troops. Tweeden, who is now a morning news anchor on KABC Radio in Los Angeles, said in an online post that Franken, while on the USO tour “put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.” Tweeden said the incident took place back stage when the two were practicing their lines for a skit Franken wrote. Tweeden said, Franken had insisted that the skit include a kiss, but she did not want to go through with it.
“I felt disgusted and violated. Not long after, I performed the skit as written, carefully turning my head so he couldn’t kiss me on the lips. At the time I didn’t want to cause trouble. We were in the middle of a war zone.”
Tweeden said of the incident. Tweeden also said Franken groped her while she was sleeping on the flight home, which she only discovered by reviewing a photo on a CD of images from the trip. The photo featured her asleep and Franken holding her breast.
