Lucy Flores, the 2014 Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor of Nevada in 2014, alleged then-Vice President Joe Biden kissed the back of her head during a campaign event that year in the state. In an article published Friday in The Cut, Flores wrote that Biden touched her shoulders before kissing the back of her head, describing the alleged incident as “demeaning and disrespectful.”
According to Flores, the event occurred before she made a speech at a rally featuring Biden in Las Vegas.
She says Biden then leaned in and “inhaled her hair” before kissing her.
“He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused…I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.”
