Anjulie Persaud is the lovely girlfriend of comedian/political commentator Bill Maher –best known for his HBO political talk show Real Time with Bill Maher.
Anjulie’s boyfriend has brought himself a wave of negativity by poking fun at the photo of former Sen. Al Franken groping a radio host in 2006 — by recreating it himself.
