The Rasmussen Minute: Al Franken, Not Funny

Former comedian and current Democratic Senator Al Franken was roundly condemned on both sides of the aisle earlier this month after former model and current Los Angeles radio broadcaster Leeann Tweeden accused him of forcibly kissing and groping her in 2006 after a photo of a smiling Franken with his hands placed on a sleeping Tweeden's breasts became public.

Since then, another accuser, Lindsay Menz, has come forward saying that Franken groped her at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010. And two more women have anonymously stepped forward, claiming in the Huffington Post that Franken touched their buttocks during separate campaign events, as well.

Franken, who has acknowledged and apologized for some of his sexually deviant behavior and said he is embarrassed and ashamed of himself amid calls for his resignation, is the subject of this week's Rasmussen Minute.
