(FOX NEWS) – A second woman has come forward to accuse former Vice President Joe Biden of inappropriate touching, further complicating the prospective presidential candidate’s political future and intensifying what has become a social media reckoning on his previous public behavior with women.
Amy Lappos, 43, told the Hartford Courant in an interview published Monday that Biden grabbed her during a $1,000-per-plate October 2009 fundraiser for Connecticut Democrat Rep. Jim Himes.
Lappos, who initially posted about the episode on Facebook on Sunday, was working as an aide for Himes at the time.
“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Lappos told the paper. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”
A Biden spokesman did not immediately respond to Fox News’ requests for comment. In statements earlier Monday and over the weekend, both Biden and his team strongly denied accusations the former vice president acted inappropriately around women. Still, they vowed to listen to any allegations or concerns.
