People are calling for Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) to resign after a radio anchor accused him of kissing her and groping her without her consent.
Leeann Tweeden shared a photo of the senator posing with his hands on her breasts while she was asleep.
In light of these recent revelations, here are nine times Sen. Franken tweeted about the need to curb sexual harassment:
