Revealed handwritten note from Sen. Franken
Leeann Tweeden spoke out about sexual misconduct allegations against Sen. Al Franken
Tweeden read the note: "It says, ‘Dear Leeann, I want to apologize to you personally. I don't know what was in my head when I took that picture. But that doesn't matter. There's no excuse. I understand why you can feel violated by that photo. I remember that rehearsal differently. But what's important is the impact on you and you felt violated by my actions, and for that I apologize. I have tremendous respect for your work for the USO. And I am ashamed that my actions ruined that experience for you. I am so sorry. Sincerely, Al Franken.'"
According to Tweeden, Franken also asked to meet with her personally.

Reacted to Pres. Trump's tweet
"This whole last 24 hours of my life have been overwhelming and surreal and then to have the president of the United States tweeting about you and this picture is — I almost don't even know what to say," Tweeden said in response to Trump's tweet.
