Tweeden joined the then-comedian on one of several trips to entertain troops in December 2006 when Franken told her he wrote a skit for the pair that included a kiss.
In another video, uploaded in 2009, Tweeden appeared on "The Best Damn Sports Show" following her USO tour in 2002.
"This is what you should be asking me about", Palin said, as she talked to reporters in the US Capitol, complaining about "double standards here".
Sen. Al Franken - the wry former Saturday Night Live comic who's become a progressive darling as a Democratic senator from Minnesota - was publicly accused November 16 of making unwanted sexual advances on a fellow performer while the two were on a winter 2006 USO tour "in the middle of a war zone" sponsored by the sergeant major of the Army.
Leeann Tweeden is now a morning news anchor on TalkRadio 790 KABC in Los Angeles and posted her story in a lengthy post on the station's website.
Franken later posed for a photo with his hands over Tweeden's breasts as she was sleeping on a military plane flying back from Afghanistan.
Franken has apologized to his accuser, broadcaster Leeann Tweeden, and said he would cooperate with an investigation. During performances of the skit, Tweeden said she turned her head to avoid kissing him.
She said it's up to Congress to decide if it wants to have an ethics investigation into Franken's behavior, adding that she isn't calling for Franken to step down, unless more women come forward.
"I certainly don't remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann", Franken said in a statement provided to the Guardian.
She said she immediately recoiled and expressed her discomfort to Franken.
Tweeden says the harassment didn't stop there. It isn't amusing. It's completely inappropriate. As she slept, Tweeden says Franken groped her breasts in a moment that was caught on camera. "Comedy is no excuse for inappropriate conduct, and I believe there should be an ethics investigation". She also accused Franken of kissing her against her will.
"I'm telling my story because there may be others", she said. "I said something like, 'Relax, Al, this isn't [Saturday Night Live].we don't need to rehearse the kiss'".
Democrats throughout the morning weighed in with disappointment toward Franken and calls for an Ethics Committee investigation. "Regardless of party, harassment and assault are completely unacceptable - in the workplace or anywhere else".
"I respect women I don't respect men who don't".
Franken's Democratic Senate colleagues Claire McCaskill and Kirsten Gillibrand both expressed deep concern about the allegations.
