Former vice president and Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden clashed with the moderator at the LGBTQ presidential forum Friday night over the ramifications of his 1994 crime bill.
Biden got testy when the moderator charged that the bill increased incarceration rates and “disproportionately” affected “LGBTQ people of color.”
“It did increase incarceration rates,” moderator Lyz Lenz said, citing a Politifact fact check.
“No it didn’t, but go ahead,” Biden said, calling her a “lovely person.”
“In 1994 you supported legislation that increased incarceration rates and promoted more aggressive policing policies and tactics. And laws like this disproportionately affect LGBTQ people of color,” Lenz said.
