Thus far most of the Biden “Bad Touch” accusations have involved Democrat candidates, operatives, and staffers. In other words, women whom Biden might have thought he could control using their careers.
This incident fits the pattern of behavior, but is a good deal worse because it involves the wife of a wounded police officer whom Biden was interacting with, not as a political candidate, but as the representative of the White House after a terrorist attack.
The wife of a Massachusetts transit police officer who was injured in the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers accused Joe Biden of touching her inappropriately and making a suggestive comment in 2014.
In two Facebook posts, one of which has since been deleted, Kim Donohue alleged that during a remembrance ceremony in Boston, a year after the April 2013 deadly bombing, then-Vice President Biden began “rubbing” her lower back.
“Look at those eyes, where did you get those eyes?” Donohue wrote. “Anyone else as good looking as you in that family … those eyes are mesmerizing, people must just do whatever you say.”
In a separate post, this one made in July 2016, Donohue reiterated her claim that Biden “greeted me by rubbing my back in an inappropriate and uncomfortable way” then “pushed” her husband, Dic Donohue, who was shot in the leg by one of the Tsarnaev brothers, aside.
“Biden then asked if I wanted to ride in a car with him down to a ceremony we were all attending at the Marathon finish line,” Donohue wrote. “He led me down a black hallway (Dic of course followed) and I got inside the most uncomfortable 3 person car ride I have ever been in.”
The story is supremely unpleasant. There are shades of Ted Kennedy here, a close Democrat pal, and Mayor Bob Filner, with a little bit of Beria in the mix.
Accusations are a dime a dozen, but it fits the pattern of Biden getting “personal”, assuming his charm is the key to his success, and abusing his office.
