Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor and current Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores (D-Las Vegas) (L) introduces Vice President Joe Biden at a get-out-the-vote rally at a union hall on November 1, 2014, in Las Vegas.
Several former senior aides to Biden quickly took to social media to defend their former boss as a staunch advocate for women's rights who had never behaved inappropriately in their presence.
I can speak from experience when I say it's an incredibly uncomfortable situation and not at all acceptable.
The "Alice Paul" account includes photos of Lappos and has pictures in common with Lappos' personal Facebook account. However, Goldberg and the other hosts said this does not rise to the level of sexual assault and Biden was just being himself.
But one woman, whose picture of her and Biden has been flaunted as proof of a pattern of inappropriate actions by the former vice president, came out this weekend ensuring that her story is different from Flores'. "He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me". 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. Ad also, what in the actual fuck? According to Lappos, the congressman was not in the room when Biden allegedly forced his nose against hers. Her LinkedIn page lists her as the owner of Moma Grants, a freelance grant-writing service.
She said Sunday that his behaviour had made her feel "powerless" and "like I couldn't move". But she later worked with the man at another company and said she experienced his "demeaning and sexist ways". Lappos was working for Himes at the time. "I was a nobody". "There's absolutely a line of decency". It's not cultural. It's not affection.
The US$1,000-per-ticket fundraiser took place Oct 5, 2009, at the Greenwich home of Ron Moelis, an affordable-housing developer.
The Hartford Courant first reported Lappos' assertion.
Rapper Nipsey Hussle fatally shot in Los Angeles, officials say
His 2013 " Crenshaw " release sold more than 1,000 copies each priced at $100, according to his Press Atlantic Records biography . Basketball star LeBron James tweeted: "So so SAD man!" @NiinetspseyHussle was doing great work for the people.
Flores was a high school dropout and former gang member who obtained a law degree and served two terms in the state assembly before making unsuccessful runs for Nevada's lieutenant governor's office and a Las Vegas-area congressional seat.
"I think the vice president is pretty clear on his statement that he respects everybody and he respects women", Walsh said outside a groundbreaking event in Brighton. "My lord, Rhodes Scholar, Wall Street". Is it simply to let people know 'I was uncomfortable, ' which you could have done in private?
But the Democratic primary has sped on without him, with more than a dozen candidates in the race, including a record number of women and minorities.
A number of candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination have backed Ms Flores. The photo was posted Feb 21.
The allegations could endanger a possible 2020 presidential run by Biden, who was vice president under President Barack Obama at the time of both alleged instances.
"THIS- elect women already". At the same time, his team has pushed back against what it views as unfair criticism.
"After the swearing in, as Ash was giving remarks, he leaned in to tell me "thank you for letting him do this" and kept his hands on my shoulders as a means of offering his support", Carter wrote.
Flores added: "He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head".
That assertion is under fire while we all figure out how damaging her story should be to a man whose tactile approach has been on display for years, with no stigma sufficient to derail his ascendancy to within a breath of the presidency.
