Army veteran Stephanie Kemplin, now 41, told CNN that Sen. Al Fanken (D-Minn.) cupped her breast during a photo op in Kuwait in 2003. Kemplin is the fifth woman to accuse Franken of inappropriate sexual behavior in two weeks.

Why it matters: Franken is currently being investigated by the Senate Ethics Committee. Earlier this week, he held a press conference to apologize for his disrespectful behavior, adding that he is embarrassed and ashamed of his actions. However, he maintained that he has no plans to resign in the wake of the allegations.
