Second woman says ex-VP Biden touched her inappropriately

Bernie Sanders expresses support foe Joe Biden’s accuser We need to ‘change the culture of this country

Lucy Flores, the former Nevada politician who accused Joe Biden of inappropriately kissing her on the back of the head in 2014, rose from a tough childhood through top Democratic political circles before becoming an outspoken critic of sexism and harassing behavior in politics. Given the likelihood that Biden could enter an already-crowded Democratic 2020 primary field, she went on to argue that Flores' motives may have been political. Every woman in Washington knew that if you found yourself in an elevator or hallway with Thurmond, his hands would inevitably find their way to your butt or your breasts; I personally know half a dozen women who were groped by him.

"I think Joe Biden has a big problem because he calls it affection and handshakes", Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, said on 'Fox News Sunday.' "His party calls it completely inappropriate".

But the new testimony from Carter raises questions about how much those viral visuals capture, and how much they may leave out.

"I think that in terms of when he talks about his motivation etcetera we really need to also acknowledge that it's not, it's not about the intent, it is about the person on the receiving end of that behavior, that unwanted behavior, and the way in which it makes that person feel, especially, especially in a situation where you have that kind of a power imbalance going on", Flores told CBSN. "But her story is not mine".

Biden did something similar to me at a fundraiser in Greenwich when I was a Congressional Aide.

She does not allege that Biden sexually assaulted her. "I had never interacted that way with him in that way before", Flores said. She said she would be satisfied if Biden simply acknowledged the discomfort the episode caused her. Blumenthal, now the state's senior senator, was then the state's attorney general; Malloy, who served as governor from 2011 to 2019, was Stamford's mayor at the time.

Biden himself, meanwhile, has issued a statement defending himself while simultaneously expressing support for women.

After Flores allegations were published on Friday, Biden released a statement saying he had no recollection of the interaction described by Flores and did not believe he had acted inappropriately with her.

No details were provided about exactly when the report would be released, or what it might contain. The Boeing 737 Max went down shortly after take-off from Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board.

She added that she believed her incident "would all blow over" after her original response to the picture in 2015.

Ashton Carter and Stephanie Carter visit the Arlington National Cemetery on February 17, 2015.

According to Carter, her husband's post as defense secretary was the crowning achievement of his career.

She declined to discuss why she felt that way. In an interview with The Associated Press, she said she wanted to bring attention to behavior by Biden that has often been brushed aside as a joke.

She lamented how her exchange with the vice president had been misrepresented, and how it had come to define the momentous occasion: "But a still shot taken from a video - misleadingly extracted from what was a longer moment between close friends - sent out in a snarky tweet - came to be the lasting image of that day".

Sen. Coons later defended the then-vice president at the time, saying at the time that his daughter didn't "think that the vice president is creepy".

-January/February 2015: At a Senate ceremonial swearing-in from January 2015, Biden trotted out odd lines and invaded the personal space of senators' female family members.

Warren added that "Joe Biden needs to give an answer". The 13-year-old girl appears uncomfortable. "So, as the sole owner of my story, it is high time that I reclaim it - from strangers, Twitter, the pundits and the late-night hosts", Carter wrote in a Medium post. "Or is it because you want someone else to win and you want him to have doubts about actually announcing for the presidency?" she asked.
