It took former Senator Al Franken a while to get to 7 accusers. “Bad Touch” Joe Biden seems to have made it there in only a few days. That’s a tribute to the scope of both men’s activities.
Biden addressed critics in a video posted to Twitter as three additional women told The Washington Post on Wednesday about encounters with him that made them feel uncomfortable. Their stories bring the total number of people who have expressed concerns about alleged interactions with Biden to seven.
That’s seven out of thousands, no doubt.
Vail Kohnert-Yount said she was a White House intern in the spring of 2013 and one day tried to exit the basement of the West Wing when she was asked to step aside so Biden could enter. After she moved out of the way, she said, Biden approached her to introduce himself and shake her hand.
“He then put his hand on the back of my head and pressed his forehead to my forehead while he talked to me. I was so shocked that it was hard to focus on what he was saying. I remember he told me I was a ‘pretty girl,’ ” Kohnert-Yount said in a statement to The Post.
If you do that in a workplace, it’s sexual harassment. But watch Joe Biden get a pass on it.
