Joe Biden was expected to enter the race as the frontrunner for the Democrat nomination.
He was even considered as being the biggest threat to defeat Donald Trump.
But now Joe Biden’s career could be over because of this woman’s jaw-dropping confession.
Joe Biden saw his aspirations for the Democratic nomination shattered last week after a woman accused him of sexual misconduct during an event in 2014.
As reported in The Hill:
“Lucy Flores, a former Democratic candidate for Nevada lieutenant governor, on Friday accused former Vice President Joe Biden of inappropriate touching from when they were at a campaign rally in 2014.
Flores wrote in The Cut that while she stood next to the stage at the campaign event, Biden put his hands on her shoulders, leaned in to smell her hair and then kissed the back of her head.”
“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?’” she wrote. ‘I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified.’”
“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,” she wrote.
Flores said she “never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before.”
Bill Russo, a spokesman for the former Vice President, said neither Biden nor his staff recall any such incident:
“Vice President Biden was pleased to support Lucy Flores’s candidacy for Lieutenant Governor of Nevada in 2014 and to speak on her behalf at a well-attended public event. Neither then, nor in the years since, did he 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.”
Flores says she did tell some of her staff about the incident after it occurred, but decided to move on with her life.
However, her anger and resentment resurfaced when she saw photos of Biden doing the same thing to other women and young girls, and Flores felt that she needed to speak up and share her experience.
With more and more photos surfacing of Joe Biden seemingly acting inappropriately towards women—in addition to the scrutiny he’s already facing for not being “progressive” enough—this latest accusation could be the final straw.
Although Biden currently holds a commanding lead for the Democrat nomination, that could all change if more accusations like Ms. Flores’ come to the surface.
Especially considering that Biden’s closest rival is socialist Bernie Sanders, who has the support of the hardcore leftist fringe groups that make up so much of the Democrat base.
