"In my many years on the campaign trail and in public life, I have offered countless handshakes, hugs, expressions of affection, support and comfort. And not once - never - did I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did so, I will listen respectfully. But it was never my intention," Biden said.
NEWPORT, R.I. – Officials have launched an investigation into allegations of hazing of football players at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island. Salve Regina spokeswoman Kristine Hendrickson said Friday university officials received an email from a parent detailing inappropriate conduct by upperclassmen on the team. Hendrickson tells The Boston Globe some of the inappropriate behavior alleged was "sexual in nature." Hendrickson says an assistant coach was accused of inappropriate conduct. Football coach Kevin Gilmartin tells the Globe he's "shocked and flabbergasted."
