Franken Apologizes for Boob Video

FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Al Franken says he regrets a video in which he’s shown holding two traffic cones to his chest like breasts.

The video was recorded at a 2012 fundraiser and first surfaced this spring. Republican officials brought it up again this week a few days after GOP congressional candidate Jim Hagedorn came under attack for old blog writings targeting women, American Indians, gays and others.

In remarks at the State Fair, Franken called the cone incident a thoughtless moment he regrets.

He says voters should look to his record on women’s issues, like fighting for equal pay and to ensure women have access to birth control through health insurance.

He faces Republican Mike McFadden in November.
