 Former Vice President Joe Biden is facing accusations from a former female lawmaker from Nevada. 

Lucy Flores said that Biden inappropriately kissed and touched her while helping her campaign for lieutenant governor in 2014. 

Flores said it made her feel, “uneasy, gross, and confused.”

These allegations come as Biden is weighing a run for president in 2020. 

Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is already running for the White House, was asked about the allegations. 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said, “I read the op-ed last night. I believe Lucy Flores and Joe Biden needs to give an answer.”
Question: “Should he not run as a result?”
Sen. Warren: “That’s for Joe Biden to decide.”

A spokesperson for Biden says that at the time this allegedly happened, Biden or his staff had no idea that Flores was uncomfortable nor do they recall what she describes.
