A former Nevada state assembly woman on Friday claims that Biden kissed her during campaigning for her. She said former Vice President Joe Biden made her feel “uneasy, gross and confused” in 2014. This was at a campaign event where she says he kissed her on the back of her head.
In this case, Democrat Lucy Flores recounted her experience with the former vice president.
This was under the Obama administration. She wrote it in a first-person essay for New York Magazine. She described an incident in which the former vice president kissed her on the back of the head. This kiss was moments before they were due to give a joint speech in Nevada back in 2014.
Moreover, She wrote “Just before the speeches, we were ushered to the side of the stage. There 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?”
Further, she added “I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair.
I was mortified. I thought to myself, ’I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual f***? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?’
Afterwards, she wrote, “He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening.
He was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “tragame Tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything.
Then she added “I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.”
However, this is not for the first time Biden is accused of touching. There is a long history. Biden’s been caught on camera embracing a female reporter.
He was touching from behind and gripping her above her waist, just below her bust.
At a swearing-in ceremony for Defense Secretary Ash Carter, Biden put his hands on the shoulders of Stephanie Carter, Carter’s wife. He then leaned in and whispered into her ear.
