A ninth woman—who was a staffer for Democrat U.S. Senator Patty Murray (WA) at the time, in 2006—has accused former Democrat Minnesota Senator of grabbing her buttocks during a picture.

“He’s telling the photographer, ‘Take another one. I think I blinked. Take another one.’ And I’m just frozen. It’s so violating. And then he gives me a little squeeze on my buttock, and I am bright red. I don’t say anything at the time, but I felt deeply, deeply uncomfortable,” said the woman.

The woman told The Cut that she wishes to stay anonymous, and didn’t come forward initially, because she feared that doing so would end her career in “progressive” and Democratic politics. She’s now a senior staffer at a prominent leftwing organization.

The woman said that she burst into tears when the Franken allegations became public in late 2017. She had considered coming forward, but had a separate experience—working in leftwing politics—where she “reported unwelcome attention from her boss at work and ended up leaving the job after feeling ostracized.” 

Franken resigned in early 2018 amid multiple assault allegations, a sacrificial lamb as Democrats were going full-bore in accusing Brett Kavanaugh. The difference was, there were pictures and direct evidence of Franken’s activity, which was also corroborated by several witnesses. Today, Franken is going on tour, and doing a new SiriusXM radio show.

The woman told the Cut that she wants to be a Cabinet secretary in a future Democrat administration. Maybe someone should tell her that the whole thing about the Democrat Party being the “party of women” is a lie.
