Sen. Al Franken told the Star Tribune he's "embarrassed and ashamed" that he has been accused of groping four women, but said "this is not something I would intentionally do."

Beyond written statements, Franken had not previously spoken about the allegations. He said he does not remember the photographs during which we allegedly touched women's bottoms. He says he'll return to work on Monday.
