The wife of the hero responsible for stopping two Islamic terrorists in Boston in 2013 says she was a victim of Joe Biden's sexual misconduct.
The wife of a Massachusetts transit police officer who was injured in the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers accused Joe Biden of touching her inappropriately and making a suggestive comment in 2014.
In two Facebook posts, one of which has since been deleted, Kim Donohue alleged that during a remembrance ceremony in Boston, a year after the April 2013 deadly bombing, 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."
When reached for comment, Kim Donohue confirmed making the accusations against Biden but would not discuss them further. An individual close to Donohue said her politics have shifted since the Obama years, and she is now supportive of the Democratic Party and Biden's candidacy.
"I couldn't get out of that car fast enough, I practically dove into the pavement," Donohue wrote in the comments of the post.
Dic Donohue, who retired from law enforcement in 2016, nearly died following a shootout with the Tsarnaev brothers, who were responsible for detonating two bombs near the finish line of the Boston marathon that killed three people and injured 264 others. During his remarks at the one-year anniversary of the attacks, Biden praised first responders like Dic Donohue for their courage.
