FINALLY! Look Who Is Facing Sexual Assault Allegations From Former Staffer
It has been in plain sight this whole time, but no one has done anything about it. Former Vice President Joe Biden is finally facing sexual assault allegations from a woman who is a former staffer.
The woman, Tara Reade says that she’s been trying to share her story for decades. Other women have already come forward about the uncomfortable situations that Biden has out them in but nothing came of it, of course.
Biden is the Democrats’ work horse and their only chance to beat President Trump in the election this year, they can’t let anything happen to him. They’re going to try and blow this off as well.
Reade was a staff assistant for Joe Biden in 1993, when she claims he digitally raped her. She told part of her story in 2019, when Lucy Flores wrote in The Cut about the inappropriate way Biden smelled her hair and kissed the top of her head. At the time, several other women came forward to say that Biden had touched them in ways that made them uncomfortable, including Reade, who said that Biden used to put his hands on her shoulders and run his fingers up and down her neck. Now, she has detailed what she says is the entirety of her experience with Biden on The Katie Halper Show.
According to Reade, Biden pressed her up against a wall and digitally penetrated her without her consent. “It happened all at once, and then… his hands were on me and underneath my clothes,” she says. She also remembers him asking “do you want to go somewhere else?” and then, when she had pulled away, “Come on, man, I heard you liked me.” Reade says that “everything shattered” in that moment and his claim that he thought she liked him made her feel like she had “done this” somehow. “I looked up to him, he was my father’s age. He was this champion of women’s rights in my eyes,” she says. “I wanted to be a senator; I didn’t want to sleep with one.”
