Another woman says Franken tried to forcibly kiss her in 2006

NEW YORK NY- MARCH 30  Comedian Al Franken performs at the Air America Radio Launch Party

Earlier Wednesday morning the latest accuser had stepped forward, saying that Franken had tried to forcibly kiss her. Wednesday morning also was the release of Time magazine's Person of the Year, which went to "The Silence Breakers," women and men who had stepped forward about being sexually assaulted and harassed.

She said she was gathering her belongings to follow the future Senator out of the room when she turned around and found herself face-to-face with him.

The aide, whose name POLITICO is withholding to protect her identity, said Franken (D-Minn.) pursued her after her boss had left the studio.

The former staffer ducked to avoid Franken's lips.

"The women who have come forward are fearless and I believe them". It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like 'Wait, what is happening?' But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked.

The EU had struggled for more than a year to agree on the list due to internal divisions. The EU's penalties on the blacklisted countries still need to be confirmed.

Franken categorically denied the accusation. "I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, 'It's my right as an entertainer, '" said the woman. Kirsten Gillibrand wrote: "While Senator Franken is entitled to have the Ethics Committee conclude its review, I believe it would be better for our country if he sent a clear message that any kind of mistreatment of women in our society isn't acceptable by stepping aside to let someone else serve".

A total of six women have now accused Franken of unwanted touching.

Lindsay Menz of Frisco, Texas also told CNN Franken grabbed her buttocks while they were taking a photo together at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010. "It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek". Though, the most damning piece of evidence against Franken is a picture of him mock-groping Tweeden while the two were overseas on a USO tour. Kemplin said Franken cupped her breast as they posed for a photo.

In responding to other women's stories, Franken has repeatedly said he recalled the events differently than the women involved.
