A woman has come forward to accuse Sen. Al Franken of grabbing her butt when they took a photo together in 2010, two years after he was elected to the Senate.

Lindsay Menz contacted CNN with her story after seeing Franken issue an apology last week after he was accused of forcibly kissing and groping Leann Tweeden in 2006.

Menz says she was at the Minnesota State Fair in the summer of 2010 when she posed for a photo with Franken.

She claims Franken “pulled me in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear … It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek.”

“It wasn’t around my waist. It wasn’t around my hip or side. It was definitely on my butt,” she added.

Franken told CNN he did not remember taking the photo and added, “I take thousands of photos at the state fair surrounded by hundreds of people, and I certainly don’t remember taking this picture. I feel badly that Ms. Menz came away from our interaction feeling disrespected.”
