“I’ve carried it for so long.”
Leeann Tweeden, the accuser of Senator Al Franken, spoke to the press recently where she recounted the events of her terrible ordeal. She also encouraged others who have been the victims of similar circumstances to speak up alongside her.
“This is happening to women who have no power and no way to speak up,”
“I think the tide is turning, and what about all the women who don’t have microphones and a voice and can say something and it’s all over the news?” she stated
“There’s no reason why I shouldn’t accept his apology. Sure,”
“People make mistakes. I’m not calling for him to step down. That’s not my place to say that. If there are other people who come out and say he’s done this, I don’t know.”
