Joe Biden has been hit with an accusation of inappropriate conduct by a woman in Arizona. She is a Democrat who ran in the 2014 midterms.
Some people on the left have been tip-toeing around this because Biden is expected to jump into the race for 2020.
But now Elizabeth Warren is going after him.
The Daily Mail reports:
Elizabeth Warren says Joe Biden ‘needs to answer’ after he denies any memory of ‘awkward’ moment Nevada politician says he grabbed her shoulders, planted a ‘big slow kiss’ on back of her head and ‘smelled her hair’ in 2014
Senator Elizabeth Warren has said Joe Biden ‘needs to answer’ after he denied any memory of an ‘awkward’ moment a Nevada politician claims he grabbed her shoulders and kissed her head.
The former Vice President has said through a spokesman that he doesn’t recall the incident as he helped campaign for her in 2014.
Democrat Warren became the first 2020 presidential candidate to address the accusations, Business Insider reports.
Speaking Friday night she said: ‘So I don’t know anything about this. But obviously if there’s a problem, then Joe Biden needs to answer.’
The following day she added: ‘I read the op-ed last night. I believe Lucy Flores and Joe Biden needs to give an answer.’
Asked if she thinks Biden should reconsider his bid for the presidency, Warren replied: ‘That’s for Joe Biden to decide.’
Warren was asked about this during a press conference and said she believes Biden’s accuser.
From Real Clear Politics:

It’s probably safe to assume at this point that there will not be a Biden/Warren ticket in 2020.
