Actress Bette Midler has seemed to come to Sen. Al Franken’s (D-MN) defense by attacking radio personality Leeann Tweeden, the first woman to come forward with the accusations of sexual assault and harassment, along with a picture where it shows Franken groping her while she slept.
In a tweet, Midler posted a link to the front page of the now-defunct FHM magazine, a men’s lifestyle publication, with an almost-nude Tweeden.
“This is Al Frankel’s accuser,” Midler posted:

People were shocked to see Midler go after Tweeden:
Midler is not the only person to come to Franken’s defense. On Tuesday, 36 women who were on the cast and crew of “Saturday Night Live,” wrote a letter saying they never experience anything inappropriate from him.
In the letter, they called what he did “stupid and foolish.”
