11. She didn't misrepresent him. Read his statement again. He only disputed whether

 

he had made her question herself. But how can he dispute that? She's the only one in the position to know the truth about whether she had questioned herself.

They both agree that he told her that he hadn't witnessed it or seen it in photos.

Also, Flores also spoke up when women were coming forward in the Sanders campaign. She confirmed that, too. That doesn't make her less credible about Biden. (And she hasn't yet endorsed Bernie, by the way.)

Lucy Flores, a former Nevada assemblywoman and a surrogate for the Sanders campaign during the 2016 presidential primary, said she was contemporaneously aware of these same allegations of "misogyny" during the campaign.

"There was essentially a cover-up" when issues were raised, she told NPR.

Flores added that sexism isn't an issue isolated to the Sanders campaign, saying it commonly occurs in campaigns.

"Frankly, I do think it's a little unfair ... that the attention and all of the conversation is including Bernie's name, because this isn't just something that's limited to Bernie's campaign," Flores said.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
