Following allegations of sexual assault by former Nevada State Senator Lucy Flores, some 2020 Democratic candidates are calling for Joe Biden to address the issue publicly. Last week, Flores accused Biden of smelling her hair and kissing her during a 2014 campaign rally. Flores claimed the experience left her “shocked” and “mortified.”
Elizabeth Warren was the first Democratic candidate to comment on the allegations. “I read the op-ed last night. I believe Lucy Flores. And Joe Biden needs to give an answer.”
Julian Castro, another Democratic candidate, also asked for Flores to be believed. “We need to live in a nation where people can hear her truth,” he said.
Joe Biden, who prides himself as an advocate for women, has come out to strongly deny Flores’ allegations. His spokesman released the following statement:
“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. But Vice President Biden believes that Ms. Flores has every right to share her own recollection and reflections, and that it is a change for better in our society that she has the opportunity to do so. He respects Ms. Flores as a strong and independent voice in our politics and wishes her only the best.”
For all the insanity of the Left, it is nice to see them treat a fellow Democrat the way they treated Justice Kavanaugh during his confirmation proceedings. However, it is important to note that Joe Biden is currently leading the polls among Democrats. This might be why the other candidates are swift to believe the allegations against him.
In any case, Joe Biden has been photographed so many times in compromising positions with women. According to Vox media, Biden has publicly touched some women just beside their breasts. These allegations against Biden might be the turning point for the Democratic race in 2020.
