Just two months after he resigned from the Senate in disgrace following a sexual harassment scandal, Al Franken was rushed to a Washington, D.C. emergency room this week for a medical crisis, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
On February 16, Franken, 66, and his wife Franni appeared “very nervous” as they arrived in the E.R. at George Washington University Hospital, a source told Radar.
In Radar’s world exclusive photo, a confused-looking Franken speaks with security as his wife of 42 years appears to take control of the situation.
Hospital staff emerged from the E.R. to rush Franken inside for an undisclosed procedure.
“They whisked them away really quickly,” says the spy.
An insider close to Franken said the former Senator’s family and friends were terrified after learning of his hospitalization.
However, the procedure was ultimately a success, the insider assured Radar.
“He’s fine,” the insider insisted.
Franken, a former comedian, is transitioning back to private life in his home state of Minnesota now that he is no longer Senator. But he is currently recovering in the country's capitol.
“He’s living in D.C. for the time being,” said the insider. “He needed some time to recuperate.”
Model Leeann Tweeden recently came forward to accuse Franken of groping her while she slept in 2006.
He apologized and said he was “ashamed” of his actions after a photo emerged of him grabbing Tweeden’s chest.
