The Democrat challengers to President Trump are dropping like flies!
Are they gonna have anyone left to run?
It’s not looking good! (for them)
Joe Biden was commonly thought by most to be the strongest candidate to face off against President Trump, but his campaign is being sunk by #MeToo accusations!
A few days ago we had the first accuser, and now we have a second.
The calls are already coming for him to bow out.
Take a look:
Here are more details, from ABC13:
A second woman has come forward in an interview with a Connecticut newspaper to allege that former Vice President Joe Biden touched her inappropriately.
Amy Lappos told the Hartford Courant on Monday that Biden pulled her in to rub noses with her at a 2009 fundraiser in Greenwich, Connecticut. Biden was vice president at the time.
"It wasn't sexual, but he did grab me by the head," Lappos, who was then an aide to US Rep. Jim Himes, told The Courant. "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."
CNN has reached out to Lappos for further comment.
In response to Lappos' allegation, a spokesperson for Biden referred CNN to a statement the former vice president issued on Sunday .
"In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort," Biden said in a statement. "And not once -- never -- did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention."
Lappos is the second woman to publicly allege Biden touched them in an inappropriate manner. Lucy Flores , a former Democratic politician in Nevada, said on Friday that Biden made her feel "uneasy, gross, and confused" in 2014 when, at a campaign rally, she said he kissed her on the back of the head.
And here's more, from Business Insider:
A second woman publicly accused former Vice President Joe Biden of making unwanted physical contact — and she pushed back against the suggestion that certain types of behavior are merely "grandpa-like" or "friendly" behavior.
Amy Lappos, 43, of Connecticut alleged that Vice President Joe Biden grabbed her head to rub noses at a 2009 fundraiser for Rep. Jim Himes, whom she formerly worked for as a congressional aide.
"It wasn't sexual, but he did grab me by the head," Lappos claimed in an interview with The Hartford Courant on Monday. "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."
Lappos said she didn't file a complaint at the time because Biden "was the vice president" and she was "a nobody."
But Biden's alleged actions still crossed a line, according to Lappos. The former aide noted that she wanted to her account to be taken seriously amid rumors of his potential run in the 2020 US presidential election.
"There's absolutely a line of decency," Lappos said to The Courant. "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."
A Democratic donor who was at the event told The Courant he didn't witness any "inappropriate" behavior from Biden.
On Monday, Lappos released a statement explaining her decision to make her account public, saying she was "disappointed" with the Democratic party and the way it treated Lucy Flores, another woman who accused Biden of unwanted physical contact. She also said the idea that this type of contact is "grandpa-like" or "friendly" was "dismissive and part of the problem."
"I stand by Lucy and any woman with the courage to come forward regarding inappropriate behavior by men," Lappos said in a statement. "Uninvited affection is not okay."
"If Biden truly supports women and gender equality he would step aside and support one of the many talented and qualified women running," she added. "The same goes for the other men who have thrown their hat in the ring."Flores, a former Nevada Assemblywoman and the 2014 Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor of Nevada, alleged Biden had grasped her shoulders and kissed the back of her head.
"He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head," she wrote in New York Magazine. "My brain couldn't process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused."
Following Flores' account of the incident, Biden said he did not believe he had acted inappropriately at the time.
"In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort," Biden said in a statement. "And not once — never — did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention."
