According to a report from Joseph Simonson in the Washington Examiner, then-Vice President Joe Biden inappropriately touched the wife of a police officer injured while apprehending the Boston Marathon bombing suspects and made a suggestive comment to her during a remembrance ceremony in April 2013. Kim Donohue, whose husband was shot in the leg during the manhunt, said in a Facebook post that Biden even “pushed” her husband aside.
“In two Facebook posts, one of which has since been deleted, Kim Donohue alleged that…then-Vice President Biden began “rubbing” her lower back.
“‘Look at those eyes, where did you get those eyes?’ Donohue wrote. ‘Anyone else as good looking as you in that family…those eyes are mesmerizing, people must just do whatever you say.’”
In a separate post, this one made in July, 2016 Donohue reiterated her claim that Biden “greeted me by rubbing my back in an inappropriate and uncomfortable way,” then “pushed” her husband, Dic Donohue, who was shot in the leg by one of the Tsarnaev brothers, aside.
“Biden then asked if I wanted to ride in a car with him down to a ceremony we were all attending at the Marathon finish line,” Donohue wrote. “He led me down a black hallway (Dic of course followed) and I got inside the most uncomfortable 3 person car ride I have ever been in.”
“I couldn’t get out of that car fast enough, I practically dove into the pavement,” Donohue wrote in the comments of the post.
Donohue “confirmed making the allegations” against Biden to the Washington Examiner but didn’t want to discuss the matter further. According to the Examiner’s report, an acquaintance of Donohue said that Donohue’s politics have changed since the time she made the allegations and that she is now supportive of Biden’s candidacy.
All of the allegations against Biden are disgusting but this one is especially disgusting. He’s groping a woman whose husband nearly died in the line of duty and attempting to get her into his limo, probably with the intent to grope her further. If even half of the allegations made against him are true, the man has a serious problem. It’s not normal to sexualize every woman one meets. It’s not normal for a grown-a$$ man to be unable to control his impulses. Of course, Biden’s campaign didn’t comment on the allegations.
