Dean James at Right Wing Tribune
By now you have all heard about the allegations made by former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores that former Vice President Joe Biden approached her from behind, put his hands on her shoulders, sniffed her hair and kissed her on the back of the head at a campaign event back in 2014.
Now, if this was a republican all hell would break loose but since it’s Obama’s VP the mainstream media is silent and most of the dems don’t think it’s a big deal.
For example, one of the top Democratic National Committee (DNC) officials tweeted out that he doesn’t believe Flores because he doesn’t think she was ever alone with Biden at the event.
The man’s name is Henry Munoz who is the DNC finance chair.

Munoz co-founded Latino Victory Fund, a progressive group held the event where Flores said Biden kissed her.
“As the organizer of the rally in question, I have thoroughly reviewed photographic documentation from the event, and spoken to nearly every principle in attendance, as well as staff associated with the event. To the best of our recollection, at no time were Lucy Flores and Vice President Biden alone,” Munoz tweeted.
The Daily Caller reports that Munoz said he was close friends with both Munoz and Biden, but asserted that “at no time were these two leaders alone together and I, and the organization I cofounded and those in attendance, do not believe that circumstances support allegations that such an event took place.”
Munoz’s defense of Biden appears to have misrepresented Flores’ account. She did not claim she and Biden were alone when the alleged incident happened.
Flores, who first accused Biden in an op-ed Friday, claimed Biden approached her while she and other speakers were waiting in line to the side of the stage.
“As I was taking deep breaths and preparing myself to make my case to the crowd, I felt two hands on my shoulders. I froze. ‘Why is the vice-president of the United States touching me?’” she wrote.
“I felt him get closer to me from behind. He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself, ‘I didn’t wash my hair today and the vice-president of the United States is smelling it. And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?’ He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head,” Flores added in the op-ed.
Biden said he didn’t recall the alleged incident and never intended to behave “inappropriately” in a statement released 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. 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,” Biden said.
So, we will see if this has an impact on Biden’s bid for the presidency.
