Three more women have said that former Vice President Joe Biden made them feel uncomfortable with unwanted physical contact, and they say they're not satisfied with his new video statement.

Vail Kohnert-Yount, Sofie Karasek, and Ally Coll shared their claims against Biden with The Washington Post on Wednesday. Kohnert-Yount said she felt uncomfortable when Biden touched the back of her head and put his forehead against hers while calling her a "pretty girl." Karasek recalled a similar experience while speaking with Biden at the 2016 Oscars, saying he grabbed her hand and came within inches of her face. Coll said Biden squeezed her shoulders and held her "for a beat too long."
