In light of sexual assault accusations by a former Senate staffer from 1993 against presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, 62 women who worked for the former Delaware Senator said they had never experienced sexual harassment, assault or misconduct from him.

The women also told PBS they never heard of anything sexually inappropriate related to Biden.

“He was fully embracing the idea that women should have the same opportunities and be taken with the same seriousness as male staff. That was distinctive,” said Liz Sherwood-Randall, a former Biden senior foreign policy adviser.

Mary Byrne worked in the Senate between 1988 and 1995 and said men touching women on the hill was a common occurrence.

“We all worked in a culture where men put their hands on you, often,” Byrne said. “I remember sitting at a desk outside the Agriculture Committee and one staffer would come in and give you a shoulder massage, say you are doing good,”

Byrne continued: “Men there felt they had access to your body as a young woman.”

Elizabeth Alexander, a former Senate and White House aide to Joe Biden, said she was never compromised or offended by the former Senator.

“I traveled with him all over the world, all over the country. I was alone with him all the time,” Alexander said. “Never, ever, ever did I feel uncomfortable.”
