In the tumultuous aftermath of Leeann Tweeden’s accusations against Al Franken during a 2006 USO trip to Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan, new photos and videos have emerged that cast doubt on her account.
During the very same USO tour in question, Tweeden can be seen blatantly groping the backside of a male performer and kissing another.
Al Franken groping Leeann Tweeden is a big deal, even if it was intended to be funny.
But Tweeden kissed a soldier on the same tour, seemingly without his consent (pictured).

While the details surrounding the rest of Tweeden’s interactions on this tour are still unclear, the images and videos of a woman who is not nearly as prim and puritanical as she has let on are striking, to say the least.
This USO tour is not the only time that Tweeden has put her sexually aggressive behavior on display. At one point, she even did so with the iconic, late Robin Williams.

It's time that Dems stop falling for right wing hit jobs. Videos show Tweeden aggressively crossing the line with men like Robin Williams at USO–repeatedly. Franken's history is the opposite. We need to shut this down NOW! @CNNPolitics https://t.co/vWfv0woQIM

Here she is yuking it up at a gala in his honor 3 yrs after that distressing “assault”. I thought she said she avoided him after the kiss? pic.twitter.com/yoAhqdXSyn

It should also be noted that Tweeden just signed a book deal with Sinclair Broadcasting Group, which has also inked deals with prominent conservative voices, including Sebastian Gorka, Steve Bannon, and the Mercers.
As evidence has begun to spread that perhaps Tweeden had a political agenda behind her decision to name Franken, a growing movement of support has coalesced behind the Minnesota Senator.
@SenFranken I owe you an apology. As a survivor, I had a knee jerk reaction to the Tweeden story & voiced that. It is increasingly clear there was no story here & she created this to benefit herself & very likely the GOP. I am sorry & you are still one of my heroes. #HonorableMan

If it is revealed that she perverted the important #MeToo campaign to launch a smear job on a Senator who has been a vital advocate for women, it would be a major blow to victims of sexual harassment and assault across the country.
