Right-Wing Attacks On Joe Biden Just Backfired As Wife of Obama Official Comes Forward With Truth Bomb

Stephanie Carter, the wife of former Defense Secretary Ash Carter denied then-Vice President Joe Biden made her uncomfortable in a viral photo that showed Biden with his hands on her shoulders.

In a post published by Medium Sunday evening, Stephanie Carter wrote that the 2015 image was “misleadingly extracted” from its proper context.

The picture, which depicts a moment at Carter’s swearing-in ceremony, has frequently been used to suggest Biden, who is considering a run for president, has a history of violating women’s boundaries. Carter’s post also comes amid recently published allegations by former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores that Biden sniffed her hair and kissed her on the back of the head in 2014 in a “violation of my bodily autonomy.”

In the post, Carter describes the moments leading up to the photo, during which she writes she had slipped on ice shortly before and was feeling more self-conscious than she would otherwise.

“After the swearing in, as Ash was giving remarks, [Biden] leaned in to tell me ‘thank you for letting him do this’ and kept his hands on my shoulders as a means of offering his support,” Carter wrote. “But a still shot taken from a video — misleadingly extracted from what was a longer moment between close friends — sent out in a snarky tweet — came to be the lasting image of that day.”

“I won’t pretend that this will be the last of that picture, but it will be the last of other people speaking for me,” Carter writes.
