FILE-- Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill, in Washington, Oct. 18, 2017. A growing national outcry over sexual harassment reached the Senate on Nov. 16, when a radio newscaster accused Franken of kissing and groping her without consent during a 2006 U.S.O. tour of the Middle East before he took public office. Franken almost immediately released an apology to the newscaster, Leeann Tweeden. (Tom Brenner/The New York Times)
