A new accuser of former Vice President Joe Biden has come forward, saying Biden sexually harassed her when she was 14 years old.
Eva Murry, who is now 26, told the Law&Crime on Friday, May 1, that Biden complimented her breasts at a political event at Delaware’s annual First State Gridiron Dinner & Show in 2008.
Murry is the niece of Christine O’Donnell, a Republican who ran against Biden for the Senate that year. She said the alleged sexual harassment incident occurred after Biden and her aunt greeted each other at the event.
“When it was Biden and my aunt’s turn to say hello he quickly turned to me and asked how old I was,” Murry told Law&Crime. “I replied with my age and he replied with the comment, ‘Fourteen? You’re very well endowed for 14!’”
“I was confused but it was definitely weird, he looked me up and down and hovered his eyes on my chest so I had some clue [about] the notion of his comment but didn’t fully understand at the time,” she said. “We quickly separated from his area after the encounter.”
According to the outlet, several friends of Murry, as well as her older sister backed her claim, saying that they were told about Biden’s comments at the time of the incident or a few years later.
Murry told the Law&Crime that after Biden’s remarks she felt anxious and sick to her stomach each time he was around.
“I feel his comments were verbal sexual harassment,” Murry said. “I think I was too naive to realize exactly what it meant at the time but I vividly remember the uncomfortable feeling I had in the pit of my stomach during the whole encounter. It wasn’t Biden’s words alone that made me so uncomfortable, it was the look, the tone, the whole general vibe was off.”
Murry insisted that her coming forward has nothing to do with politics, and she just wanted to tell her friends, who started posting about voting for Biden after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) dropped out of the Democratic primary, “What kind of man Biden is.”
One of her friends, Victoria Anstey, the self-described Democrat and feminist supported Murry’s claim and said that politics were not involved.
“I can’t stand Trump,” she said. “This isn’t politically motivated. This is about men in power using their status to silence victims.”
The new charge comes as Biden is facing mounting pressure for transparency over his former staffer Tara Reade’s sexual allegation. On Friday, Biden denied Reade’s allegation but struggled to answer questions from “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski over his reluctance to release records contained in his Senate papers at the University of Delaware.

In addition to Reade and Murry, at least six other women are speaking out about their personal interactions with Biden, alleging he acted in ways that made them feel uncomfortable, reported The Cut.
