as should be expected more victims coming forward. These predators can't help themselves.



A Connecticut woman says Joe Biden touched her inappropriately and rubbed noses with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich when he was vice president, drawing further scrutiny to the Democrat and his history of unwanted contact with women as he ponders a presidential run

"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 posted about the alleged incident on the Facebook page of Connecticut Women in Politics Sunday in response to a similar account by former Nevada legislator Lucy Flores, which comes as Biden is considering a 2020 run for president. Flores accused Biden of kissing her on the back of her head in 2014, when she was a candidate for lieutenant governor.

Lappos, 43, who is now a freelance worker with nonprofit agencies, said she felt extremely uncomfortable when Biden approached her at the 2009 fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th, where she was volunteering. At the time, Lappos was a congressional aide to Himes, who she said was not in the room when the incident took place.

"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."

A spokeswoman for Biden declined to respond to the allegations by Lappos and instead offered a statement that Biden issued Sunday about the Flores controversy.

President Obama sure did like to surround himself with sleazy, crooked people.

Good grief .. now a minor incident, far from assault in the first place, has been elevated to 'sexual assault' which is laughable. Exaggerate much? This will be on the news ad infinitum until someone with common sense puts a stop to it.

That crackpot AOC (Cortez) goes around hugging and kissing men on the cheek, arms outstretched, in a 'holding pattern'. And you guys want to pick on a 75 yr. old former Vice President?.

Get a life.

is not Trump or the conservatives Biden has to worry about. It's his own party and the femenists. He has to win the nomination before he faces Trump and he won't make it.

Lol. Sorry, but this is hilarious. You know how many people care? Count the Trump supporters in the room, because that is it.

This stupidity will have no effect on Biden's campaign or votes.

So--you Trump people and republicans: talk among yourselves, because the Dems voting don't really care from what I've seen and heard. Good luck with spreading the "horror" of it though.

Let's be honest - Trump has issues is this area as well. He just wasn't dumb enough to do it in front of the camera.

Or maybe it's a self-control issue for Biden...

This really could get ugly for him.

Well actually, he was. Did you not catch the Access Hollywood video? It was 5 stars and rated X!

A senator's wife, Stephanie Carter, says the photo of her and Biden used to illustrate Biden's indiscretions misses point. The reason for him being so close to her was her discomfort in the spotlight. He was an old friend who leaned over to thank her for allowing her DH to take the position.
