"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert tore into Sen. Al Franken over a report Wednesday in which a woman accused him of attempting to force a kiss on her, referring to him as "Minnesota senator — and former Minnesota senator."
Noting that Franken called this allegation from a former Democratic congressional aide "categorically" untrue, Colbert countered that this "accusation appears to be the straw that groped the camel’s back."
As more accusations of sexual misconduct piled up on Franken, D-Minn., on Wednesday, a wave of his Democratic colleagues called on him to resign.
Two new accusers came out against Franken on Wednesday, including the former congressional aide.
I’m an entertainer and I happen to always carry around a copy of the Bill of Rights for entertainers," Colbert said to that point.
