Now 7 Woman Have Come Forward to Accuse Biden of Inappropriate Touching

Former Vice President Joe Biden now finds himself engulfed in his own version of a #MeToo moment on the eve of launching his highly anticipated presidential campaign.

Last Friday, Nevada Democrat Lucy Flores came forward and accused the former vice president of inappropriately kissing her before a political rally in 2014. Since then, six additional women have come forward to accuse Biden of inappropriately touching them through the years.

Amy Lappos, a former congressional aide to Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), claimed on that Biden rubbed noses with her and touched her inappropriately during a 2009 political fundraiser.

Then on Tuesday, two more woman came forward and told the New York Times “that the former vice president’s touches made them uncomfortable.”

The Huffington Post is now reporting on an additional three woman who said they had “uncomfortable physical encounters” with the 76-year-old Biden through the years.

Biden addressed the controversy in a video posted to social media on Wednesday, saying, “it’s the way I’ve always been” and adding that he would change his behavior going forward.

But, reporters were quick to point out that during the course of Biden’s two-minute video, he never actually apologized for his actions or to the woman whom he made uncomfortable.
