‘Touchy’ Biden Scandal Rolls On
The scandal involving the alleged "touchy feely" behavior of former Vice President Joe Biden has taken another turn, as a second woman has come forward with allegations.
ABC News reports Amy Lappos, a former congressional aide, says the vice president "inappropriately" touched her at a Connecticut fundraiser.
“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Mr. Lappos said. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”
Previously, Lucy Flores, a former Nevada legislator, said Mr. Biden wrote an essay in which she said the then-vice president came up behind her at a campaign event, touched her shoulders, and kissed the back of her head.
It remains to be seen how the allegations could affect Mr. Biden's presidential aspirations. The other Democratic contenders are for the most part walking the proverbial fine line, saying the women, as well as the former veep, should all have their say.
