For the first time in three decades, the House passed a tax cutting bill. But news of that passage has been overshadowed by recent sexual misconduct allegations against Sen. Al Franken (D-MN).   
Late this morning, KABC Los Angeles radio host Leeann Tweeden explained that she was on a USO tour to entertain troops in the Middle East with Al Franken in his comedy days. During the tour, Tweeden accused Franken of forcibly kissing and groping her and posted a picture online depicting part of the incident. Sen. Franken has since apologized and stated that “an ethics investigation be undertaken” against him.
