Second Biden Accuser Emerges As Rep Calls Accusations Of Creepy Behavior ‘Smears And Forgeries’

2145

On Monday, a Connecticut woman claims that Biden touched her inappropriately and “rubbed noses” with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich.

It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos told The Hardford Courant on Monday. Lappos is a former congressional aide to Rep. Jim Hines (D-CT) and first posted about the alleged incident in the Facebook group Connecticut Women in Politics on Sunday using a pseudonym.

He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.

“I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody,” said Lappos. “There’s absolutely a line of decency. There’s a line of respect. Crossing that line is not grandfatherly. It’s not cultural. It’s not affection. It’s sexism or misogyny.”

False narrative? 

A spokesman for former Vice President Joe Biden says that recent reports of decades-old images and footage of him creeping on women and children is a “false narrative” perpetuated by trolls from the “dark recesses of the internet,” according to Business Insider.

Biden spokesperson Bill Russo said in a statement Monday that multiple pictures being used to paint the potential 2020 presidential candidate as creepily touching women are being misinterpreted and have been refuted by the subjects of photos that have gone viral.

“These smears and forgeries have existed in the dark recesses of the internet for a while,” he said. “And to this day, right wing trolls and others continue to exploit them for their own gain.” –Business Insider

It’s unclear what Russo means by “forgeries” – since the authenticity of the material has not been challenged to this point.

“There are other, even more insidious examples of claims about the Vice President that have no foundation: the use of photoshopped images and other manipulations of social media,” added Russo. “Perhaps most galling of all, a cropped photo of the Vice President comforting his grandson outside of his son Beau’s funeral has been used to further this false narrative.”

Which, of note, is distinctly different than the below picture of Biden about to mouth-kiss his grandson Hunter after taking the oath of office.

This also doesn’t appear to be a forgery:

At least two of the “creepy Biden” pictures have been addressed, however. One – showing Biden holding the shoulders of the wife of former Defense Secretary Ashton Carter was explained by Carter: “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”

Another photo of Biden trying to kiss the daughter of Democratic Sen. Chris Coons was explaned away after Coons told the Washington Post this weekend that he “did not think of it as anything.”

Former Democratic nominee for Nevada lieutenant governor Lucy Flores accused Biden of smelling her hair before planting a “big slow kiss” on her head in a 2014 incident.

The day of the 2014 rally, speakers gathered and took photos before going on stage. Flores (right) is pictured with Longoria and Biden before the uncomfortable encounter.

On Sunday, Flores recounted the incident on CNN‘s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper, stating that amid the chaos and energy of the event, Biden “very unexpectedly and out of nowhere,” Biden “put his hands on my shoulders, get up very close to me from behind, lean in, smell my hair, and then plant a slow kiss on the top of my head.”

 

Biden’s odds of winning the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, according to PredictIt, have taken yet another dive on the news of his second accuser.

Oddly, it appears that Biden’s “best friend forever” Barack Obama has yet to come to his former VP’s defense.

  1. For many years I have seen JOE BIDEN impose himself in TOO CLOSE proximity to females, both very young and more mature women. TOUCHING, VERY CLOSE ,INCHES from FACE , NECK and HAIR. I nave NEVER seen any NORMAL man, except very close relatives ACT in such an IMPOSING way.
    I have wondered why some offended lady did NOT SLAP HIS FACE ,—or–at least CORRECT HIM WITH STRONG ACRIMONIOUS WORDS. He knowingly used his POSITION as V P to SILENCE THEIR CHAGRIN and EMBARRASSMENT.

  2. Amazing! When a demo-nut is inappropriate, everything is right with the world, but let a republican do anything and all hell breaks loose. Hypocrites! The media has been showing pictures of biden’s behavior for years and laughed and usually the recipients of his “affection” looks uncomfortable. I can’t believe that no one, especially with all the crap going on the last 2 years, that no one has told him to stop, ESPECIALLY HIS WIFE!!!!! He is a dirty old man and trying to cover up for him now, is too little, too late!

  3. I never liked that he was always touchy, feely with women and children. I don’t think he is the wonderful person that everyone thinks he is. All the other men in the groups did not touch, hug and kiss the women and children, that is for your own family. Look at some of the pictures of how the children react, one little girl moved away very quickly and others looked like they couldn’t wait for him to go away. But, I do think all of this is coming from the Democrat Party so he won’t run for President so they can get their Socialist Party into office. Should the Socialist Party win, our country is done!

  4. Joe isn’t enough of a left-winger to win with today’s Dem/Socialist party! Besides which, Dems want a woman to make up for Hillary losing in 2016, or they’re afraid their feminazi cadres will get mad and stay home on election day. So at some point before primaries end, Joe Biden will either LOSE too many races and be sidelined from the primary field or drop out (possibly because he’s “too old”). Either way, he won’t be on Dem ballot in November 2020.

    As f for his behavior with women to whom he isn’t married, this has been going on almost forever! Even before his first wife died, Joe had a rep around the Senate for being just too friendly with other senators’ wives or teen-aged & adult daughters. And THAT was back in the early 1970s — the DARK AGES! Neither the feminazi movement of the 1980s-2010s nor pressure from the #metoo crowd of the current decade have ever gotten him cured of his “habit” with the ladies. And of course the DEMOCRAT women never even COMPLAINED — after all, he was ONE OF THEM!

  5. How can anybody criticize Joe Biden’s behavior while supporting the notoriously lecherous and clearly maritally unfaithful Donald Trump? How can your politics get your morals so twisted? I think the times have moved past both of them, but one of them is still in the White House doing enormous damage to our country in so many ways…

  6. JOE BIDEN IS PART OF THE OLD WHITE CROWD AND THAT IS NOT WHERE THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT PARTY IS GOING. IF BIDEN CANNOT SEE THAT HE IS A FOOL. IF I AM RIGHT THE BEST THING BIDEN CAN DO IS HANG IN THERE AND DESTROY THOSE WHO ARE DESTROYING HIM
    THE TWO BIGGEST CARDS PLAYED BY THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS IS THE SEX CARD AND THE RACE CARD. JOE HAS BEEN DROOLING IN YOUR FACE FOR 25 YEARS. ALL OF A SUDDEN HE IS JACK THE RIPPER.
    TWO BIGGEST TOOLS OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY ARE ASSASSINATION BY LIES AND ASSASSINATION BY RIDICULE. THAT IS WHY NO ONE WATCHES SNL, FANG FACE MAHER OR CLAUDETTE COLBERT ANY MORE. BE SURE TO SEE THE MOVIE STARRING BERNIE BIG BUCKS SANDERS. “DRIVING MISS HITLERY” 2016 ONLY TWO CANDIDATES FROM THE GREAT MOSAIC. TWO WHITE SENIOR CITIZENS AND NO ONE SAID BUTT BUTT. STOOGES MAKE BAD REVOLUTIONARY’S.
    CAN YOU BELIEVE POCAHONTAS MAKES NO SENSE AFTER ONE BEER?

    NICE TRY COMMUNISTS TO TURN BIDEN INTO PRESIDENT PINOCCHIO PANTS. PUT SOME ICE ON IT.

  7. In every “gathering”, Biden can be seen touching women and children. I am not saying it is sexual in nature but it is on the “handsy side”. I come from a “huggy” family and it is a natural thing for hugs and kisses to occur at a family gathering. That is family, though. We don’t go to family reunions looking for a date, though! lol Biden does this at just about ALL gatherings and, in his position, he should know better than to open himself up to possible liable or sexual cases. Now there are two women coming forward mentioning what he has done. If it made them this uncomfortable, something is wrong. I said long ago that something would arise from these actions. it is definitely on the “icky side”!

  8. It appears that Biden is now having a “Me, too” moment. I am delighted all over again that I stay home, grow vegetables and make fishing tackle. It’s hard to get in trouble that way! Note also that I have no plans to run for elected office.

    When my wife asked about this phenomenon, I explained that most men were given enough blood to run either their brains or their dicks, but not both at the same time.
