Bi­den team blasts ‘trolls’ amid scru­tiny

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

Aides to Joe Bi­den struck a more ag­gres­sive tone on Mon­day as the for­mer vice pres­i­dent faced scru­tiny over his past be­hav­ior to­ward women.

In a state­ment, Bi­den spokesman Bill Russo blasted “right wing trolls” from “the dark re­cesses of the in­ter­net” for con­flat­ing im­ages of Bi­den em­brac­ing ac­quain­tances, col­leagues and friends dur­ing swear­ing-in cer­e­monies with un­in­vited touch­ing.

The move came on a day in which a se­cond woman said Bi­den had acted in­ap­pro­pri­ately, touch­ing her face with both hands and rub­bing noses with her in 2009.
