Two more women have accused former Vice President Joe Biden of making inappropriate contact with them, bringing his total number of accusers to four.
“Caitlyn Caruso, a former college student and sexual assault survivor, said Mr. Biden rested his hand on her thigh — even as she squirmed in her seat to show her discomfort — and hugged her “just a little bit too long” at an event on sexual assault at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas,” according to a New York Times report.
Caruso was 19 at the time. She is now 22.
“It doesn’t even really cross your mind that such a person would dare perpetuate harm like that,” she told The Times. “These are supposed to be people you can trust.”
Another woman, writer D.J. Hill, met Biden at a 2012 fundraiser in Minneapolis. She told The Times that the former vice president suspiciously moved his hand from her shoulder down her back during a photo opportunity, which she recounted making her “very uncomfortable.” Biden was apparently not subtle. Hill’s husband stepped in to ameliorate the awkwardness.
The first accusation of inappropriate contact was made public Friday, when Lucy Flores, formerly a nominee for lieutenant governor of Nevada, accused Biden of kissing her head and smelling her hair at a campaign rally.
A second accuser came forward Monday.
“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head. 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,” Amy Lappos told the Hartford Courant.
That instance of inappropriateness occurred at a fundraiser.
Meanwhile, the mainstream press and Democratic Party politicians have downplayed Biden’s behavior. The Washington Post referred to it as “affectionate,” despite the fact that it formerly raved about “believing all women” in the #MeToo era.
The paper has a nasty habit of protection Democrats from sexual misconduct claims of any kind, having spiked a late 2017 story about Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax allegedly sexually assaulting Vanessa Tyson.

Hispanic Democrat Leaders in California are Desperately Calling for Kamala Harris’s Senate Seat to be Filled by a Hispanic
Democrats are Making an Attempt to Ethnically Pander
Hispanic Democrats are getting desperate. One of the major stories of 2020 was how Republicans made solid gains with Hispanics, all the way from Florida to Texas.
Curt Mills, the senior reporter at the American Conservative, pointed out how California Democrat leaders recognize the party’s underperformance with Hispanics.
Mills tweeted, “California Latino leaders — in wake of an underwhelming performance among the demographic, nationally and in the Golden State — take out full page ad in @latimes Sunday, urging Governor Newsom to pick state Secretary of State Alex Padilla to replace Kamala Harris.”

These leaders want California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to fill in the incoming Vice President Kamala Harris’s Senate seat. Curiously, the Biden administration nominated Alejandro Mayorkas, a Cuban American. Democrats likely understand their mediocre numbers with Hispanics and are doing everything possible to pander to them by rewarding them with political positions.
Democrats are perhaps becoming aware that their grip on the Hispanic vote is not as firm many experts have made it out to be. According to exit poll data coming from CNN, 65 percent of Hispanics voted for the Democrat Party, while President Donald Trump received 32 percent of the Hispanic vote. Although these numbers are within the Republican average, context is everything.
These numbers came after a four year period when pundits assured us that Donald Trump’s tough stances on immigration would completely alienate him from Hispanic voters. Some pundits even went as far as to say that the Hispanic vote would break towards the Democrats by monolithic margins, similar to the way African Americans vote for Democrats. However, this has not been the case. As Joe Biden observed, the Hispanic community is quite diverse and cannot be easily pigeonholed.
The Trump campaign recognized and targeted certain groups such as Florida Hispanics by using the current example of Venezuela’s economic failure to appeal to them. A number of Hispanics along the South Texas border also bought into Trump’s message of border security and likely understand the dangers Mexican cartels pose. For that reason, pulling the lever for Trump was not a difficult decision.
Any productive Republican outreach with Hispanics involves appeals to law and order and a focus on border security. Right now the Democrats’ woke coalition is fragile and Republicans can exploit its contradictions by appealing to populist policies that cross racial lines and expose the corruption of a ruling class that is the enemy of all Americans.
