A new allegation concerning Joe Biden and his inappropriate behavior towards has surfaced, and this time it has taken a darker turn as it concerns a 14-year old.
The allegation comes via a story over at Law & Crime, where a woman has claimed that she was 14 when Biden complimented her on her breast size. The comments came during a political event Eva Murray attended twelve years ago.
The woman, Eva Murry, told Law&Crime that Biden complimented her on the size of her breasts at the First State Gridiron Dinner & Show in 2008, a long-running roast of and party for politicians, journalists and prominent business figures held each year in Delaware. Murry says she remembers the event occurring sometime around May of that year.
One friend and her sister said that Murry told her details of the alleged incident more or less immediately after it happened. Four other friends of Murry’s said they were told about the incident, with the same details, between two and three years after it originally occurred.
Law&Crime interviewed Murry, her sister, and those friends over the course of multiple days. Murry is the niece of former Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell and said she occasionally received school credit for attending such political events. O’Donnell was running a long-shot campaign against Biden at the time that the alleged sexual harassment incident occurred.
Murray, who is now 26, engaged, and has two children, acknowledged to the website that the timing of the allegations could be seen as political, but she insists that the event is true.
This is first new allegation of sexual misconduct against the presumptive Democratic nominee for President since he addressed the Tara Reade allegations on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday morning. During that interview, Biden denied that the sexual assault described by Reade did not happen.
The allegation by Reade has received increased media coverage over the course of the week after multiple right-leaning outlets, including RedState, pointed out what they call a “double-standard” between how Biden is being covered and how the allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh were covered in 2018.
There has so far been no comment from the Biden campaign on Murray’s allegation.
