At least eight women have come forward with allegations that former vice president Joe Biden made them feel uncomfortable when he touched them, sniffed them, or otherwise invaded their personal space.
The mounting allegations may have the former veep, who has yet to officially declare his presidential bid, reconsider how to move forward with a prospective campaign. Biden is widely considered to be a frontrunner in the election and some people are still backing him amid the allegations. From Twitchy:
