Joe Biden accused by a second woman for unwanted physical contact

A Connecticut woman. the second person in three days,  accused the former vice president Joe Biden of unwanted physical contact, in 2009, at a political fundraiser.

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos, 43, told the media 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.” Previously, former Nevada state legislator Lucy Flores  last week accused Biden of kissing her on the back of the head at a 2014 event. Joe Biden has been expected to announce a Democratic White House bid in the coming weeks and has been leading the Democratic presidential field in opinion polls. “I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once - never -  did I believe I acted inappropriately,” was Biden’s reaction in a statement. “If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention.”
