Two more women have come forward to accuse former Vice President Joe Biden of inappropriately touching them in recent years.
Caitlyn Caruso, who is now 22, was 19 years of age at the time. She told The New York Times that Biden rested his hand on her thigh and hugged her “just a little bit too long” at an event about sexual harassment at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
She was uncomfortable, she said.
D. J. Hill, a 59-year-old writer, told the Times that she had an uncomfortable encounter with Biden at a 2012 campaign event in Minneapolis.
Biden put his hands on her shoulders and began dropping them down her back, Hill told the newspaper. Her husband interrupted with a joke.
“Only he knows his intent,” Hill told the Times.
Two other women, Amy Lappos and Lucy Flores, came forward this past week.
Biden has not declared his candidacy yet, and he may never declare. He has a lot of support. Nancy Pelosi and Valerie Jarrett are two feel this isn’t disqualifying.
