[UPDATE: New evidence has emerged that could put Murry’s claims in doubt. Check out the latest here.]
A new accuser stepped forward on Friday to allege that Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden sexually harassed her in 2008 when she was 14-years-old.
“The woman, Eva Murry, told Law&Crime that Biden complimented her on the size of her breasts at the First State Gridiron Dinner & Show in 2008, a long-running roast of and party for politicians, journalists and prominent business figures held each year in Delaware,” Law&Crime reported. “Murry says she remembers the event occurring sometime around May of that year.”
Law&Crime added that a friend of Murry’s and Murry’s sister said that she told them about what happened after it happened, and four other friends said they were also told about it a few years later.
“I remember walking into the lobby and being in awe of all the people in such fancy clothes,” Murry said in an interview. “Our two parties of people gravitated towards each other and everyone started saying their hellos. When it was Biden and my aunt’s turn to say hello, he quickly turned to me and asked how old I was. I replied with my age and he replied with the comment ‘Fourteen? You’re very well endowed for 14!’ I was confused but it was definitely weird, he looked me up and down and hovered his eyes on my chest so I had some clue [about] the notion of his comment but didn’t fully understand at the time. We quickly separated from his area after the encounter.”
“I feel his comments were verbal sexual harassment,” Murry continued. “I think I was too naive to realize exactly what it meant at the time but I vividly remember the uncomfortable feeling I had in the pit of my stomach during the whole encounter. It wasn’t Biden’s words alone that made me so uncomfortable, it was the look, the tone, the whole general vibe was off.”
Law&Crime said that the Biden campaign did not respond to requests for comment.
The Daily Wire reported earlier this week on the eight other women who had accused Biden of sexual misconduct and inappropriate touching.
Biden is also facing allegations that he sexually assaulted his former Senate staffer Tara Reade in 1993. The former vice president appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday morning to address the accusations after not responding for five weeks.
Biden’s campaign had sent out false talking points for prominent Biden supporters to use that attacked the credibility of Reade’s accusations. The dishonest talking points claimed that a New York Times investigation found that the allegations were not credible.
The New York Times later released a statement saying that their investigation did not conclude that the allegations were not credible:
Buzzfeed reported on the existence of talking points being circulated by the Biden campaign that inaccurately suggest a New York Times investigation found that Tara Reade’s allegation “did not happen.” Our investigation made no conclusion either way. As Buzzfeed correctly reported, our story found three former Senate aides whom Reade said she complained to contemporaneously, all of whom either did not remember the incident or said that it did not happen. The story also included former interns who remembered Reade suddenly changing roles and no longer overseeing them, which took place during the same time period that Reade said she was abruptly reassigned. The Times also spoke to a friend who said Reade told her the details of the allegation at the time; another friend and Reade’s brother say she told them of a traumatic sexual incident involving Biden.
