Joe Biden Hit with SECOND #MeToo Mess as Woman Comes Forward

The Biden team is referring reporters to their previous statements regarding Lucy Flores in this fresh case.

As Joe Biden’s team struggles to cope with accusations of inappropriate touching made by Lucy Flores, a second woman has now come forward to convey an similarly uncomfortable interaction that she had with the former Vice President back in 2009.

The accusation comes from Amy Lappos, a former political volunteer.

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos told The Courant Monday. “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.”

Lappos was made to feel quite discomforted by then-VP Biden.

“I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody,” Lappos said. “There’s absolutely a line of decency. There’s a line of respect. Crossing that line is not grandfatherly. It’s not cultural. It’s not affection. It’s sexism or misogyny.”

Just days ago, and prompted by the accusations made by Lucy Flores, Biden made the following statement:

“In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once – never – did I believe I acted inappropriately,” Biden said. “If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention. I may not recall these moments the same way, and I may be surprised at what I hear. But we have arrived at an important time when women feel they can and should relate their experiences, and men should pay attention. And I will.”

When confronted with these new accusations by Lappos, the Biden team referred reporters to this earlier sentiment.
