Former Sen. Al Franken lands SiriusXM gig to start comeback from sexual misconduct allegations

•, By Brian Flood

Franken famously resigned from Congress in 2018 over groping allegations at the height of the #MeToo movement, following high-profile claims against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, NBC News star Matt Lauer and others.

Franken was accused of acts of sexual misconduct, including claims by Leeann Tweeden, who said the Minnesota Democrat groped her and kissed her against her will during a USO tour in 2006. A photo emerged of Franken smiling as he appeared to touch Tweeden's breasts while she was sleeping. Tweeden eventually accepted Franken's public apology.

SiriusXM's "The Al Franken Show" is billed as a series of "thought-provoking conversations with headliners and experts in the fields of politics, entertainment, media, technology, global affairs, and more," with comic legend Chris Rock scheduled to be the debut guest.
