Mr. touchy feely is back in the news with another round of allegations involving inappropriate touching; this time coming from two separate women, bringing the total allegations to 4.
That’s right 4 allegations and the man hasn’t even officially launched his campaign yet.
According to the NY Post, two more women have come forward to accuse former Vice President Joe Biden of inappropriately touching them in recent years — one of whom was 19 years old at the time.
Caitlyn Caruso, who is now 22, told The New York Times that Biden rested his hand on her thigh and hugged her “just a little bit too long” at an event about sexual harassment at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
Caruso told the newspaper Biden’s touch made her particularly uncomfortable because she had just shared her story of sexual assault at the event.
“It doesn’t even really cross your mind that such a person would dare perpetuate harm like that,” she told the Times. “These are supposed to be people you can trust.”
D. J. Hill a 59-year-old writer, also told the Times that she had an uncomfortable encounter with Biden at a 2012 campaign event in Minneapolis.
Biden put his hands on her shoulders and began dropping them down her back, Hill told the newspaper. She added that her husband intervened and interrupted with a joke.
“Only he knows his intent,” Hill told the Times.
With accusations flying this early into the campaign season it really hard to decipher if Biden will still throw his hat into the 2020 presidential race.
One can only guess there are many more types if incidents yet to be reported.
