Joe Biden says he does not recall kissing a Nevada political candidate on the back of her head in 2014

Lucy Flores, the former Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor of Nevada, made the allegations against Biden in an essay for The Cut, an arm of NY magazine, writing that Biden made her feel "uneasy, gross, and confused" in 2014 when, at a campaign rally in Nevada, she said he kissed her on the back of the head. And also, what in the actual f-?

She claimed the incident happened at a campaign rally in early November 2014, when she was attempting to become the state's lieutenant governor. "There is a Spanish saying, "tragame tierra", it means, "earth, swallow me whole.' I couldn't move and I couldn't say anything".

Recently, he made a verbal slip during a speech at a Delaware Democratic Party dinner said, "I have the most progressive record of anybody running for the-anybody who would run".

"Biden then began kissing the back of Flores" neck.

She recalled that before she went on stage to speak, Biden approached her and gave her the awkward, unwarranted kiss.

Flores responded to the statement in an interview with the New York Times, commenting that Biden "could have done a lot more to acknowledge how his behavior might have made me and the other women he has done that to feel". "That's what gets me in trouble as well", Biden said. In response to the Biden statement, Flores said that Biden may legitimately not be able to remember the incident: "I would argue that he is so used to behaving in that way that it is no big deal". "And not once - never - did I believe I acted inappropriately", Biden said.

Mr Biden's history of conduct with women has been well-documented in the USA press.

And then Dobbs said he's calling on Trump to "fire these incompetents in the leadership of the Department of Homeland Security and Customs Border Protection".

Speaking to reporters in Iowa, Warren and Castro said they believed Lucy Flores, who wrote in NY magazine that she felt uncomfortable with her interactions with Biden.

"My brain couldn't process what was happening".

"I was mortified", Flores, 39, told the NY magazine.

Biden's behaviour is receiving renewed attention in the #MeToo era, when the movement against sexual assault has led to the downfall of dozens of politicians, entertainment figures and businessmen.

The accusation might impact Biden's decision to officially enter the presidential race.

Biden believes Flores has every right to share her own recollection, Russo added, and that it is a positive change for US society that she has the opportunity. "He respects Ms Flores as a strong and independent voice in our politics and wishes her only the best". His spokesman says no one was aware she felt uncomfortable.

In that poll, Biden was followed by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (19 percent) who kicked off his campaign in February.
