Franken Accuser Says Voters Will Decide His Fate

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Los Angeles radio anchor who accused Sen. Al Franken of forcibly kissing and groping her during a 2006 USO tour says it’s up to voters to decide whether he should stay in office.

Leeann Tweeden tells ABC’s “Good Morning America” Friday that she decided to come forward with her story because she hopes to encourage other victims of sexual harassment and assault to tell their stories in “real time.” Tweeden says she didn’t speak out at the time of the incident because she felt complaining would hurt her career.

When asked if Franken should step down, Tweeden says: “That’s not my call. I didn’t do this to have him step down … I think that’s for the people of Minnesota to decide.”
