"Why is the Vice President of the United States touching me?" She wrote about the situation.

"He leaned in further and inhaled my hair," Flores wrote. "I was humiliated … He continued to put a big slow kiss on the back of my head, my brain could not handle what was happening, I was embarrassed, I was shocked, I was confused."

Flores, who did not rise to the post of lieutenant governor, said she had cut her off because she saw no clear path to justice.

"I felt powerless to do anything about it," wrote Flores, who has since co-founded a Latina advocacy group, Luz Collective.

"Even if his behavior was neither violent nor sexual, it was humiliating and disrespectful," she wrote.

It is expected that Biden will announce in the coming weeks whether he will serve as president in 2020

A spokesman for the former vice president said in a statement on Friday that such allegations should be taken seriously, but Biden does not remember the incident.
