A former Nevada lawmaker has accused former Vice President Joe Biden of kissing and touching her during a campaign event, an allegation that Biden — a possible presidential contender for 2020 — said he doesn’t recall.
The allegations were laid out in a first-person piece written by Lucy Flores, a Democrat who at the time was running for lieutenant governor of Nevada, in New York Magazine. Flores writes that the event happened in 2014 and she had kept quiet for years thinking her story would be dismissed.
Flores writes that Biden held a rally in the state to help boost voter turnout for her and other Democrats. While they were waiting backstage, “I felt two hands on my shoulders,” Flores writes.
When she looked back, it was Biden.
