Joe Biden’s spokesman said Friday that the former vice president does not recall kissing a Nevada political candidate on the back of her head in 2014.
The allegation was made in a New York Magazine article written Friday by Lucy Flores, a former Nevada state representative. Flores wrote that she and Biden were waiting to take the stage during a rally in Las Vegas before the 2014 election.“I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head.” Flores said Biden’s behavior “made me feel uneasy, gross, and confused.”
Biden spokesman Bill Russo said in a statement Friday, “Neither then, nor in the years since, did he or the staff with him at the time have an inkling that Ms. Flores had been at any time uncomfortable, nor do they recall what she describes.”
