With Biden securing the Democratic nomination and polling almost 10% points ahead of Trump….
Out of nowhere?….A sexual assault case from a woman against Joe Biden?….
Oh, ?….A former Biden staffer….She’s now a Bernie Sanders supporter….
With Trump’s political people hard at work for November some of us would think this is no coincidence …
Joe Biden’s campaign team has vehemently denied the sexual assault allegations of a former Senate staffer who says she wanted to come forward to ensure that “powerful men” are held to account.
Last year, Tara Reade, had been among a number of women to speak out about how Biden’s behavior had made them feel uncomfortable in the past.
At the time, Reade said she was still left disturbed by memories from nearly 30 years ago when, while working as a Senate staffer for Biden in 1993, the then-senator would do things like put his hand on her shoulder or run his finger up and down her neck. Other women told similar stories of shoulder rubs or nuzzling of their hair.
Now, however, Reade says that during that same time period, Biden sexually assaulted her, pushing her against a wall and digitally penetrating her. When she moved away, the former Senate staffer says, Biden said he thought she had “liked” him.
The former Senate staffer shared her account in an interview with podcast host Katie Halper, as well as with The Intercept, which brought attention to Reade’s claims earlier this week.
On Friday, she told Newsweek that her primary goal in speaking out was to be able to share her story without having to prioritize the reputations of “powerful men”….
Several women said last spring that Biden inappropriately touched them. Biden and his campaign have denied the accusations, but said then they would listen to any allegations or concerns.
Reade’s story is clouded by her support for Biden’s rival for the Democratic presidential nod, Sen. Bernie Sanders….
Biden has NOT had to make financial settlement payments to women like Donald Trump has…
