Army Veteran Accuses Franken Of Touching Her Breast During Photo

An Army veteran claims Democratic Sen. Al Franken assaulted her during his tour with the USO in 2003, when he was a comedian, by groping her while posing for a photo.

Stephanie Kemplin, who was stationed in the Middle East during Franken’s now infamous tour to entertain the troops, is the fifth woman to accuse Franken of sexual misconduct in the past few weeks, and the third to do so on the record.

Kemplin, 41, tells CNN that during Franken’s visit she lined up to take a picture with the Saturday Night Live writer, and that he touched her inappropriately.

“When he put his arm around me, he groped my right breast. He kept his hand all the way over on my breast,” Kemplin told CNN. “I’ve never had a man put their arm around me and then cup my breast. So he was holding my breast on the side.”

She did not say anything to Franken at the time, but remembers thinking that “It was long enough that he should have known if it was an accident.”

“I remember clenching up and how you just feel yourself flushed,” Kemplin said. “And I remember thinking — is he going to move his hand? Was it an accident? Was he going to move his hand? He never moved his hand.”
