Allegations emerged the morning of Thursday, Nov. 16, that Sen. Al Franken groped a radio anchor and forcibly kissed her when the two were on a USO tour in 2006. 

Since then, three more women – two anonymously – have publicly alleged the senator inappropriately touched them. Meanwhile, statements of support from many of Franken's former women colleagues at 'Saturday Night Live,' as well as from a group of 65 female elected officials, community leaders and DFL members, have been issued.


Below is a timeline beginning with the Nov. 16 allegations.
