× (FILES): This file photo taken on October 30, 2017 shows US Senator Al Franken (D-MN) listening during a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism hearing titled 'Extremist Content and Russian Disinformation Online' on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. US Senator and former Saturday Night Live star Al Franken, accused of groping women, issued a fresh apology Thursday, November 23, 2017 after new complaints of inappropriate behaviour emerged this week. The case of the Minnesota Democrat, who faces a potential Senate ethics investigation, is the latest in a series of sexual assault complaints against prominent American men in the entertainment, sports, political and media worlds. Two women have anonymously alleged that Franken touched their buttocks at two separate political events in 2007 and 2008, the Huffington Post reported on Wednesday, taking the total number of accusations against him to four. On the United States holiday of Thanksgiving, Franken wrote that he "feels terribly that I've made some women feel badly," the Star Tribune newspaper in his home state reported. / AFP PHOTO / GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA / Drew Angerer
