Lucy Flores, a former Nevada state assemblywoman, published an essay Friday in which she described Joseph R. Biden Jr. touching her inappropriately and kissing her on the head during a Democratic campaign rally in 2014, when he was vice president.
With Mr. Biden expected to announce whether he will enter the race for president in April, Ms. Flores’s story attracted scrutiny on his interactions with women over his long career in national politics. On Sunday, Mr. Biden released a statement defending himself, saying he did not believe he had ever acted inappropriately on the campaign trail.

Several candidates for the Democratic nomination were asked over the weekend to weigh in on the accusations, and Ms. Flores herself discussed her essay, and the response to it, in an interview with The New York Times on Saturday and on CNN Sunday morning.
Here’s a look at Ms. Flores, her career in politics, and her more recent efforts to speak out on social justice issues, sexism and harassment.
In 2009 — her last year in law school — Ms. Flores, a Democrat, won an election to represent Nevada’s Assembly District 28, in the same part of Las Vegas where she had grown up, becoming one of the first Latinas elected to the state legislature.
She served two terms in the Assembly, during which she said she focused on issues like education, consumer protection and aid for victims of domestic violence.
At one point in 2013, she gave testimony at a committee meeting on sexual education about having had an abortion when she was 16, and subsequently received threats, according to local news reports.
Felicia Ortiz, a friend of Ms. Flores’s who is on the State Board of Education in Nevada, said she let Ms. Flores stay with her after someone shot a bullet into Ms. Flores’s house.
“Her strength is phenomenal,” Ms. Ortiz said.
Ms. Flores ran as the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor in 2014, which was when she met Mr. Biden. The vice president, she wrote in the essay, had agreed to come to a rally to help her fledgling campaign.
At first, she wrote, she felt “grateful and flattered.” But as she was preparing to take the stage, she “felt two hands on my shoulders” and “froze.” Then, she said, Mr. Biden leaned in and “inhaled my hair,” and “proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head.”
After her primary loss in 2016, Ms. Flores moved to California, where she worked at Mitú, a digital media company, and then helped found a company, Luz Collective, focused on empowering Latinas.
Ms. Flores has also embraced the role of social justice advocate, speaking out about sexism and harassment in politics in recent years. She gave support to Masha Mendieta, a woman on Mr. Sanders’s 2016 presidential campaign who said she was mistreated.
And in a 2017 interview with Nevada Public Radio, she said it was “wonderful” that “we are having this conversation about what is the difference between sexism, what is the difference between sexual harassment, what’s the difference between sexual assault.”B:
