Biden vows to change behavior after allegations of inappropriate touching

Biden vows to change behavior after allegations of inappropriate touching

"Social norms are changing".

In a clip from CBS Evening News, he added that in America everyone gets "due process" and just because Biden has been accused of touching women in ways that made them uncomfortable, it doesn't mean he necessarily did it.

Biden also said, "I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future". My responsibility and I'll meet it.

In the video, Biden also dropped a hint that he may soon announce a presidential bid, saying "Folks, in the coming month, I expect to be talking to you about a whole lot of issues, and I'll always be direct with you".

In a video and statement released to his Twitter feed Biden said that he had always seen politics as about "personal connection" and defended his habit of hugging and touching people he met.

"The vice president has issued a statement affirming that in all the many years in public life that he has shaken a hand; given or received a hug; or laid his hand on a shoulder to express concern, support, or reassurance, he never meant to cause discomfort", Russo said Monday. I understand it. And I'll be much more mindful, that's my responsibility.

Late last week, former Nevada politician Lucy Flores wrote that Biden had grabbed her shoulders, smelled her hair and kissed her on the back of her head at a campaign event in 2014.

Two more women came forward with their own stories of "very uncomfortable" encounters with Biden on Tuesday, bringing the total number of accusers to four. "And not once - never - did I believe I acted inappropriately". Whether they're women, men, young, old, it's the way I've always been; it's the way I've tried to show I care about them and I'm listening. But we have arrived at an important time when women feel they can and should relate their experiences, and men should pay attention.

This week a second woman, Amy Lappos, said Mr Biden had rubbed noses with her at a fundraiser in 2009. Caitlyn Caruso, a sexual assault survivor, recalled an event during which the former vice president laid his hand on her thigh and gave her an uncomfortably long hug.

At the end of the video, Biden reiterated he would be more thoughtful going forward.

In a taped statement released on Wednesday afternoon, Biden said he will be more mindful about respecting personal space, but did not apologize.
