Former Veep and current Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is getting creepy again.

Breitbart says Biden "cozied up" to a 10-year-old girl at an American Federation of Teachers town hall in Houston, Texas.

“I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking,” Biden reportedly said to the little girl. Breitbart says the girl told Biden she wants to be a reporter and that Biden "leaned over and spoke in her ear" before introducing her to members of the press corps.

Biden has taken a heap of criticism about his habit of touching women and children in public without their consent. So much so that he vowed to stop. In April, his campaign issued a video statement in which Biden promised to be more aware of his actions.

I'm sorry, but this type of behavior from a man Biden's age is totally unacceptable, especially since he has been made aware of how it makes some folks feel and has already vowed to knock it off.

Touching people without their consent is an invasion of their personal space and is inconsiderate and rude. It is also very creepy when it involves little girls.

Keep your hands to yourself, Joe Biden.
