Former Nevada Democrat state Sen. Lucy Flores accused former Vice President Joe Biden of sexual misconduct in a piece she wrote about a 2014 encounter she had with him that left her "mortified," saying she had "never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before."
Flores, a former member of Bernie Sanders’ political group Our Revolution, says that the incident happened as she was about to go on for a rally just days before the upcoming elections were held.
"Just before the speeches, we were ushered to the side of the stage where we were lined up by order of introduction," Flores wrote. "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?'"
"I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified," Flores continued. "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."
"I had never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before," Flores said, adding, "he made me feel uneasy, gross, and confused."
"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," Flores continued. "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."
Flores says that one of the factors that led to her speaking out about what happened to her was that she saw numerous reports about Biden's creepy behavior toward women and children. Here are some video clips of Biden's creepy behavior:
In November 2017, a month after the #MeToo movement was launched, The Daily Wire reported on Biden's disturbing behavior which included allegations that he made female Secret Service agents uncomfortable because he would get naked in front of them.
"Agents say that, whether at the vice president's residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude," the book "The First Family Detail" alleges. "Female Secret Service agents find that offensive."
The allegation against Biden comes as he is reportedly expected to announce that he is running for president in 2020.
"Former Vice President Joe Biden is out front in a poll by Quinnipiac University out Thursday, with 29% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters saying they'll vote for him in the 2020 primary if he runs," CNN reported on Thursday.
"Biden is contemplating a campaign for the White House in 2020, and there is speculation that he is close to entering the presidential field. He is followed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (19%), former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke (12%), and Sen. Kamala Harris (8%), according to the Quinnipiac poll."
