ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Lucy Flores, the Nevada politician who says Joe Biden made her feel uncomfortable by kissing her at a 2014 campaign event, has detailed the allegations against him.
Speaking on CBS This Morning, Flores said, "He smelled my hair and then he planted the slow kiss on the top of my head ... I'm just thinking to myself why is the vice president of the United States of America touching me and kissing me and smelling me?" Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Sunday he believed he had never acted inappropriately following allegations by a female activist that he made her feel uncomfortable by kissing her at a campaign event in 2014.
"In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort.
And not once - never - did I believe I acted inappropriately.
If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully.
But it was never my intention," Biden said.
Biden has said he does not recall the 2014 incident.
The allegation was made in an online essay published on Friday by Lucy Flores, a party activist who was running to be Nevada's lieutenant governor.
