Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) during a hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, April 5, 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 USO tour of the Middle East before he took public office. Franken almost immediately released an apology to the newscaster, Leeann Tweeden. (Eric Thayer/copyright 2017 The New York Times)
