Al Franken Cut From PBS’ David Letterman Tribute Amid Groping Claim



Amid a sexual harassment claim, Al Franken has been edited out PBS’ upcoming broadcast of David Letterman The Mark Twain Prize. The Senator has been accused of sexual harassment by TV host and sports broadcaster Leeann Tweeden. She claims that Franken kissed and groped her without her consent back in 2006. Franken has released two statements about the allegations and is quoted saying, “The first thing I want to do is apologize: to Leeann, to everyone else who was part of that tour, to everyone who has worked for me, to everyone I represent, and to everyone who counts on me to be an ally and supporter and champion of women.”
