A woman is accusing Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) of trying to forcibly kiss her in 2006.

The woman — who was a former Democratic congressional aide — said the Minnesota Democrat attempted to forcibly kiss her in 2006 following a taping of his radio show.

“He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me. It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like ‘Wait, what is happening?’ But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked,” the aide said in an interview with Politico.

“I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.’ ”
