After months of speculation about whether Joe Biden will enter the race for the White House in 2020, it looks as if his campaign could be derailed before it has even begun.
The former Vice President has been accused of inappropriate behaviour by two different women. Both allegations emerged in the past week.
In an essay, former Nevada state assemblywoman Lucy Flores recalled an encounter with Biden in 2014 during which he touched her shoulders, leaned in to smell her hair and kissed the back of her head.
Democratic aide Amy Lappos told the Associated Press yesterday that, at a fundraiser in 2009, Biden wrapped both his hands around her face, pulled her towards him and "rubbed noses" with her.
She described the incident as "absolutely disrespectful of my personal boundaries".
How damaging could these allegations be for Biden, and do they make him an unfit presidential candidate?
