Joe Biden Says He Doesn't Recall 'Inappropriate' Kiss

Former Vice President Joe Biden says he has no memory of an "inappropriate" encounter recently described by former Nevada politician Lucy Flores.

Her account was published  in New York Magazine's  The Cut  Friday.

Flores said Biden came to support her at a campaign rally in 2014, while she was running for lieutenant governor in Nevada.  She says before they went on stage, the then-vice president grabbed her shoulders from behind, smelled her hair and kissed the back of her head.

Flores says she didn't speak up at the time because, on the campaign trail, there's "no clear path for what to do when a powerful man crosses the line." Biden's spokesperson responded in a statement, saying Biden didn't know Flores was uncomfortable, and he doesn't remember the incident.

The statement also said he believes she has every right to share her own "recollection and reflections," and "it is a change for better in our society that she has the opportunity to do so." Biden currently polls as the  top Democratic presidential candidate  for 2020, though he hasn't officially announced he's running.
