Our Revolution board member Lucy Flores now clarifies her accusation about Joe Biden as a “violation of my personal space” and not as sexual assault.
“For the record, I don’t believe that it was a bad intention. I’m not in any way suggesting that I felt sexually assaulted or sexually harassed. I felt invaded. I felt there was a violation of my personal space,” Flores said.
Flores said Biden smelled her hair, kissed on the back of her head and put his hands on her shoulders when he campaigned on her behalf in 2014 when she ran for the lieutenant governor of Nevada.
The article she wrote in The Cut painted another picture….she seemed to accuse Biden of more than an invasion of her personal space.
But I had never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before. Biden was the second-most powerful man in the country and, arguably, one of the most powerful men in the world. He was there to promote me as the right person for the lieutenant governor job. Instead, he made me feel uneasy, gross, and confused. The vice-president of the United States of America had just touched me in an intimate way reserved for close friends, family, or romantic partners — and I felt powerless to do anything about it.
Pictures from their encounter also show Flores, by her definition, invading Joe Biden’s personal space by putting her hand on his shoulder while posing for selfies.
The media is doing to Joe Biden what it did to Hillary Clinton, with the wall-to-wall coverage of her emails, WikiLeaks, near-fainting spell, Clinton Foundation, etc., while Donald Trump was allowed to slide under his issues, which paled in comparison.
