TWO NEW BIDEN ACCUSERS: Two more women have accused former Vice President Joe Biden of touching them inappropriately at events, bringing the total number of women who have complained publicly about the prospective 2020 Democratic candidate to four ... The latest accusations were reported by the New York Times. One of the claims dated from 2012, while the other encounter was said to have taken place a few years later. Biden has denied acting inappropriately and a spokesman for the former vice president accused "right wing trolls and others" of feeding the controversy. Meanwhile, members of presidential campaign team for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., deny suggestions that they were behind the allegations made by the first Biden accuser, former Nevada lieutenant governor candidate Lucy Flores - and ardent Sanders supporter.
Still, despite Biden's woes, Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand, who led the #MeToo drive that led to the resignation of Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., in 2018 over misconduct, was not quick to call for the former vice president to ditch his 2020 aspirations, saying, "Voters will have to decide."
