Joe Biden accused of kissing and sniffing hair of Democratic Lawmaker at a campaign event without consent – AIWA! NO!
Crimson Tazvinzwa, AIWA! NO! || Former Vice President Joe Biden was accused Friday of kissing a Democratic lawmaker without her consent in 2014.
I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, “I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused. There is a Spanish saying, “
tragame tierra,” it means, “earth, swallow me whole.” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me ~ Former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores
Time passed and pictures started to surface of Vice-President Biden getting uncomfortably close with women and young girls. Biden nuzzling the neck of the Defense secretary’s wife; Biden kissing a senator’s wife on the lips; Biden whispering in women’s ears; Biden snuggling female constituents. I saw obvious discomfort in the women’s faces, and Biden, I’m sure, never thought twice about how it made them feel. I knew I couldn’t say anything publicly about what those pictures surfaced for me; my anger and my resentment grew ~ Former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores//The CUT
Former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, whom Biden campaigned for at the time, published “An Awkward Kiss Changed How I Saw Joe Biden,” in New York Magazine.

… and also added, admitted the allegations and revelations are political.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden; potential, surely possible presidential candidate for next year elections said in a statement:
