While visiting CNN, Kemplin stated that Franken cupped her breast for about five to 10 seconds during a photo op back in December 2003. Apparently, this alleged incident occurred during a meet-and-greet while the then comedian was on a USO Tour. This is the SECOND accusation of misconduct that is said to have taken place on a USO tour.

In case you forgot, broadcaster Leeann Tweeden led the charge against Al when she accused the seasoned politician of kissing her without consent AND of groping her while she slept during an '06 tour of the Middle East. Smh.

no title

Several male celebrities have been lit up with sexual misconduct allegations in the past few months, but not everyone deserves to go up in flames with the likes of uber-predators Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

Namely, Al Franken, who has received a letter of support from dozens of female Saturday Night Live staffers amid the recent allegations that have come out against the Democratic senator.

The letter, signed by 36 former writers, production assistants, costume designers, and cast members, did not condone Franken's actions toward Leeann Tweeden, who accused him of kissing and groping her without consent on a 2006 USO tour. In fact, the former cast and crew members were quick to call his actions "stupid and foolish."

But the letter, published in Tuesday's Star Tribune, also made sure to state that Franken was nothing but commendable during his time on the show, where he treated every woman (or at least every signatory) "with the utmost respect and regard."

While the message of support does not mention the more recent allegations made against the Senator, the 36 women stated unequivocally that "not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior" from Franken during his SNL days, adding:

Sounds like Al Franken is a real opportunist when it comes to photo-ops with women.

A woman has come forward accusing the Minnesota Senator of grabbing her butt as they posed for a photo at the 2010 Minnesota State Fair.

Lindsay Menz told CNN that Franken was at a booth at the state fair when they struck a conversation before her husband proceeded to take a photo of them. She said the former Saturday Night Live writer "pulled me in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear. It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek."
