U.S. President Donald Trump's most likely rival in this year's election, former Vice President Joe Biden, who had previously been accused of indecent behavior, was again caught up in a sex scandal.
According to Associated Press, Biden's former assistant Tara Reed said that in the early 1990s her boss, who at that time held a seat in the U.S. Senate, harassed her in the basement of an office building on Capitol Hill.
Earlier, the woman even contacted the Washington police, claiming sexual harassment by an unnamed person.
However, this is not the first time that ex-Vice-President Reed has been accused вЂ” last year she publicly stated about вЂњimproper touchingвЂќ by Biden, but did not accuse him of harassment.
Biden's deputy campaign manager and communications director Kate Beddingfield dismissed the charges.
вЂњObviously in this statement, that's not true. This has not happened at all,вЂќ she said.
Earlier, Biden's party associate Lucy Flores said that during a rally in support of her in 2014, he kissed her on the back of the head without her consent.
As we have already written, in response, he said that he did not remember a single moment to act inappropriately and, in any case, never wanted to do so.
