WASHINGTON — A Nevada Democrat who accused Joe Biden of touching her without permission is lashing out at the former vice-president for joking about the matter as he considers a 2020 presidential bid.
Lucy Flores tells Fox News that Biden has been “so incredibly disrespectful” since she published her recollections of a 2014 encounter.
Biden has joked about having permission to hug people after having promised he’d do a better job respecting personal boundaries.
Last month Flores accused Biden of touching her shoulders from behind and kissing the back of her head backstage at a political event. Biden has said he doesn’t recall that, in a video promised to learn from criticisms about his displays of affection.
