MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota Sen. Al Franken is telling a local newspaper that he plans to return to work on Monday and is "embarrassed and ashamed" by the groping allegations levied against him.
  
The Democrat spoke with the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Sunday, marking his first interview since being swept into a nationwide tide of sexual harassment allegations.
  
At least four women have accused Franken of misconduct. Three of them say he grabbed their buttocks while taking photos with them during campaign events. Franken says he doesn't remember the photos and that such groping is "not something I would intentionally do."
  
Franken says he's looking forward to returning to work in Congress. Franken missed votes after the first accusations were made public. He says he believes he can gradually regain voters' trust.
