The former Vice President Joe biden is under fire for sexual misconduct on the campaign trail in 2014. Former Nevada Democrat state Sen. Lucy FloreClaims she was inappropriately touching her shoulders, smelling her hair, and kissing her on stage.
Flores wrote, “Just before the speeches, we were ushered to the side of the stage where we were lined up by order of introduction. As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. ‘Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?'”
Flores continued, “I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. … I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me.”
Flores stated, “I had never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before. he made me feel uneasy, gross, and confused.”
Flores concluded, “Imagine you’re at work and a male colleague who you have no personal relationship with approaches you from behind, smells your hair, and kisses you on the head. Now imagine it’s the CEO of the company. If Biden and I worked together in a traditional office, I would have complained to the HR department, but on the campaign trail, there’s no clear path for what to do when a powerful man crosses the line.”
Joe Biden has a history of inappropriately touching woman and young children, and has resulted in his nickname “creepy uncle Joe.” It is likely this story is true based on the history of publicly molesting woman and children.
