As Twitchy told you, Joe Biden’s spin machine is pushing back hard over renewed focus on his past creepy conduct around women. Recently, Lucy Flores, a former Nevada state assemblywoman, accused Biden of touching and kissing her inappropriately at a 2014 campaign rally.
Well, looks like there will be more defiant statements to come, now that another woman has come forward with an accusation of inappropriate touching:

More from the Hartford Courant:
A Connecticut woman says Joe Biden touched her inappropriately and rubbed noses with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich when he was vice president, drawing further scrutiny to the Democrat and his history of unwanted contact with women as he ponders a presidential run.
“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos told The Courant 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.”
“I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody,” Lappos said. “There’s absolutely a line of decency. There’s a line of respect. Crossing that line is not grandfatherly. It’s not cultural. It’s not affection. It’s sexism or misogyny.”
A spokeswoman for Biden declined to respond to the allegations by Lappos and instead offered a statement that Biden issued Sunday about the Flores controversy.

Did you think there was just going to be one coming out against Biden? Team Kamala and Bernie have binders full of women just waiting.

Second? There are so many that happened in full public view. https://t.co/0DTesQnXWP

We have to measure these two accusations against [check notes] decades of public behavior.
