Ex-U.S. Vice President Biden denies inappropriate conduct over alleged kiss

Joe Biden Kisses Women Lucy Flores Lucy Flores: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

The former vice president and leading contender to become the Democratic presidential candidate issued a statement in which he said during his many years in public life he had offered countless "handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort" which he never felt were improper. "We have options, and I don't feel pressured to stay quiet and just take one for the team the way in which we're always asked to do and never speak out about the things that we believe are wrong". "If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully, but it was never my intention". "But it was never my intention".

But several of his rivals have now weighed in on the allegations from a former state lawmaker who has recalled being "mortified" when Biden planted a "big, slow kiss" on the back of her head on the sidelines of a rally in Nevada five years ago.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is defending his interactions with women, saying he doesn't believe he's ever acted inappropriately.

The initial statement from Russo said, "Neither then, nor in the years since, did (Biden) or the staff with him at the time have an inkling that Ms. Flores had been at any time uncomfortable, nor do they recall what she describes".

The grandparents of the Democrat, come from Switzerland. the Bernie Sanders (77) want to try it after the last electoral defeat again: The US Senator running for the presidency.The democratic Senator Cory Booker (49) announced his candidacy on 1.

She called the moment "shocking", adding, "You don't expect that kind of intimacy from someone so powerful and someone who you just have no relationship (with) whatsoever to touch you and to feel you and to be so close to you in that way".

At the ceremony of Ash Carter, Defense Secretary, in 2015, Joe Biden put his hands on the shoulders of Stephanie Carter and whispered into her ear. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me.

"I saw that she was meeting with him and I thought to myself that if I don't say something now, I'm going to regret this", Flores said.

Biden has previously acknowledged that his "tactile" behavior could land him in trouble, especially in the #MeToo era which has already torpedoed the careers of several USA politicians, including the former Democrat senator Al Franken.

Speaking to reporters in Iowa, Massachusetts Sen.

Flores recounts her experience with Joe Biden in a first-person essay for The Cut. She said the alleged incident happened after she and other speakers "were ushered to the side of the stage where we were lined up by order of introduction". "This isn't the first time and it wasn't the only incident where he was acting inappropriately with women", she said.

"She was abused through the hearing", he said. Instead, he made me feel uneasy, gross, and confused.

The photographs from the February 17, 2015 ceremony made their way back into the public eye in recent days after recent allegations against Biden.

Should Biden decide to run in 2020, after failed bids to be the party's nominee in 1988 and 2008, he will be a key figure in the Democratic debate over whether a liberal political newcomer or a centrist veteran is needed to win back the White House.

As reported by VOX, Joe Biden has a long history of touching women inappropriately and while the media has given the likable Biden a pass for years, it certainly won't in 2020.
