There’s a big anti-Joe Biden story out on The Cut today by Lucy Flores, a Nevada Dem who accused the former Vice President of smelling her hair and giving her an unwanted kiss on the back of the neck during a campaign stop in Nevada in 2014:
This was an incredibly difficult thing to do, but something that felt necessary. It took awhile before I found the words and the support that made me feel like this was finally a story I could tell. https://t.co/Sr5Go3xuTe

The encounter does seem pretty darn creepy:
"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. My brain couldn’t process what was happening. I was embarrassed. I was shocked. I was confused."
Via former NV assemblywoman…. https://t.co/u2TCyEJUH8

We should mention, however, that Lucy Flores, is a huge backer of Bernie Sanders. Shouldn’t that have made it into the article, at the very least as an editor’s note? She bragged in 2016 of Sanders picking her to be on the board of Our Revolution, a 501(c)(4) that bills itself as “The next step for Bernie Sanders’ movement is Our Revolution, which will fight to transform America and advance the progressive agenda that we believe in”:

And her name is still on the website and all:
Is it an important story? Sure. But why’s she hiding her work for Bernie?
