Three more women are coming forward with allegations of “inappropriate touching” against former Vice President Joe Biden.
On Wednesday, the accusers recounted several instances in which they say Biden made them feel uncomfortable. The interactions with the women vary from forehead-to-forehead touching to Biden placing his hand for far too long on their backs or shoulders.
This comes after Biden released a two-minute video on Wednesday in which he vowed to be more mindful of personal space and boundaries.
Social norms are changing. I understand that, and I’ve heard what these women are saying. Politics to me has always been about making connections, but I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That’s my responsibility and I will meet it. pic.twitter.com/Ya2mf5ODts
