Joe Biden accuser Tara Reade calls out media

Joe Biden accuser Tara Reade calls out media

The woman who has accused Joe Biden of a sexual assault in the early 1990s is calling out the media and several politicians being considered to join the former vice president on the 2020 ticket for "protecting a powerful man" while attempting to "silence" her in the process.

"I'd like my history with Biden to be examined in a dignified way that's not slanted by political bias or sensationalized. I'd like a deeper conversation about the fact that sexual harassment and sexual assault do not have a political party, agenda," Tara Reade told Fox News in an interview Sunday. "It's an equal opportunity offender. There are Democratic offenders as well as Republican offenders and I'm sure Independent and Green Party. I mean, it doesn't matter what your party affiliation is, and it shouldn't as far as the media coverage regarding claims."

Reade, a former staffer for the then-Delaware senator, pointed to the favorable reporting on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who came forward in 2018 during the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and accused him of an alleged assault that took place in the 1980s. Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations that were leveled against him at the time.

"Blasey Ford, because it was a conservative candidate they were going to put in the Supreme Court, was treated with much more deference by most of the media outlets, although her experience was difficult as well. And she received threats and received her own pain," Reade said. "I've basically had no substantive support from women's groups that are considered liberal or Democratic. I've had no support from any Democratic candidate, although I've reached out. And I've received either slanted reporting that ended up being talking points for Biden's campaign or silence from the mainstream media. So that's my contention and my concern."

The Biden accuser expressed hope that "the next kind of case" like hers will be approached in a "more educated way and with emotional intelligence."

Reade, a life-long Democrat, later called out the politicians on Biden's VP shortlist over their "silence" on her assault claim, including Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who she had supported for president during the Democratic primary before supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

So democrats don't want to talk about this accusation when they demanded that hearings be held about Kavanaugh. Maybe they will take this up in the senate and get to the bottom of it.

Re: Joe Biden accuser Tara Reade calls out media

Had 27 years!!! :angry:

On the flip side of the coin, those wanted Kavanaugh to face his long since past didn't thought this may come back and haunt them (can't have double standards). What's good for the goose...

Continuing to bring up this accusation, while also continuing to turn a blind eye to the 12 or 13 women with accusations similar (or worse) against Trump, shows, aside from the hypocrisy (because you DON'T GIVE A MORAL DAMN WHETHER BIDEN DID IT OR NOT) just how afraid you are of Joe Biden in the November election, MM.

2 more people corroborate certain details of Tara Reade's account

Two more sources — one a former neighbor and the other a former co-worker — have come forward and corroborated certain details about Tara Reade's sexual assault allegation against former Vice President Joe Biden, Business Insider reports.

Reade has accused Biden of assaulting her while she worked as aide for him in 1993 when he was a senator. Biden hasn't addressed the allegations, although his staff says they are false. But Lynda LaCasse, who lived next door to Reade in the mid-90s, told Insider that Reade told her about the incident in 1995 or 1996. "She was crying," LaCasse said. "She was upset. And the more she talked about it, the more she started crying. I remember saying that she needed to file a police report."

LaCasse said she believed Reade back then, which prompted her to speak out and on the record now that the story is facing public scrutiny, noting that Reade never asked her to come forward.

Reade's former colleague at the office of former California state Sen. Jack O'Connell (D) between 1994 and 1996, Lorraine Sanchez, said Reade had complained to her about being mistreated by her former employer. She said she doesn't recall if Reade offered any details.

In addition to Sanchez and LaCasse, Reade's brother, Collin Moulton, and a friend who asked to remain anonymous have said Reade told them about the incident after it allegedly occurred. Reade also said an anonymous caller on CNN's Larry King Live in 1993 talking about her daughter's "problems" with a prominent senator was her mother. Read more at Business Insider.

They have more witnesses coming forward so we need hearings on this just like with Kavanaugh, all the feminists should be demanding it.

Isn't there hypocrisy on the Dem side as well as by yourself?

Really if a women is too always be BELIEVED,    (which is what Dems claims for Judge K),    why not Reade?

Note that for the record;  I never agreed with the 'must be BELIEVED" concept and I didn't think it was right that decades old accusations were mentioned during the Judge K hearings.

The American people have established, whether with Bill Clinton or Donald Trump, that even multiple credible accusations of sexual assault don't matter when it comes to choosing a US President.

"Always be believed" is not what democrats were saying.  Dr. Ford was a completely credible witness.  Every Republican including Donald Trump said so.  But in the end they didn't care about her credibility.  It's not the same thing.

Anyway, MM is just trolling everyone by constantly bringing up things that Donald Trump is ten times worse at.

Always be believed was what a lot of Dems were saying,  especially women.  You didn't already forget about ME-Too,  did you?  (of course not).

  Anyhow are you saying Tara Reade is NOT a credible witness?    That you have done as much research into Reade as you did Dr. Ford and you have come to this conclusion?     

Hey,  if you did,  my hat is off to you,  but I would hope that you can see that many Dems are not doing that type of research.

Instead they are just pretending the claim was never made and hoping it will drop ASAP from the media cycle (what little coverage it has received  to date).

 AND of course conservatives are just 'trolling';   that is what one should expect from partisans when the other side brings up decades old accusations against their side.    Politics is a dirty business and bringing up decades old accusations,  creditable or not,  is dirty-politics IMO.

MM trolling?  What are the boards coming to?

I watched the hearings and read a lot about the Kavanagh hearings.  I know nothing about Tara Reade.  If she is credible then good luck to her.

America will have an election based again on which candidate is the worst instead of the best.  IMO no one on the planet could be worse than Donald Trump.  An exaggeration, I know but the sentiment is real.  Joe Biden is Mother Teresa in comparison and I'm not just talking about dalliances from bygone years.

As you know I'm in the anyone-but-Trump camp.   You're 100% correct that when it comes to voting for the lesser evil,  that means  anyone but Trump.

Joe Biden should win even if voter turnout is at the same levels as 2016.     I used to think the Dem would need Obama type voter turnout,  even after the fail attempt to remove him via impeachment,   but Trump's meltdown and clear lack of leadership over C-19 has woken up enough folks.    Even some that were largely brain-dead in 2016.

Unless some evidence is produced to prove that Joe Biden has been something along the lines of a serial killer he will be a better choice for President than the incompetent, ignorant, innately dishonest and morally repugnant Donald Trump. Did Biden assault Reade? I don't know and neither does anyone else reading this.

Trump has had 12 or 13 accusations of sexual assault, while bragging of doing same on tape. By sheer numbers I think the odds of Trump, with his troubled marriage history which includes paying off a playboy bunny and porn star, being guilty of same is great, as opposed to the sole accusation against Biden.

The American public will have only two real choices in November, so the choice is stark. Even if Biden turns out to be guilty as hell of the accusation, for that matter, the country and world will still be far better off with a man of his competence in the Oval Office. The American public is being asked to elect a politician to the highest office, flawed as he (or she) may be as a human being.

Unless there is actual evidence of the Reade accusation, however, I still believe Joe Biden to be a man of moral decency, unlike the current occupant of the Oval Office.

It will be interesting to see how Biden's woman V.P.  selection deals with questions from the media on this topic.

Also will anti-Joe Dems like Anita Hill,   A.O.C.  and others  try to suppress woman voter turnout?      While I"m sure they don't wish for Trump to be President bitterness could lead them to actions that don't assist Biden and thus Trump by default.

Tara Reade blasts Hillary Clinton after Biden endorsement

 Tara Reade slammed Hillary Clinton for offering her endorsement to former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday after the former Senate staffer came forward last month with an allegation of sexual assault against the presumptive Democratic nominee.

"I voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. I voted for her in the primary. I'm a lifelong Democrat. But yet, what I see now is someone enabling a sexual predator and it was my former boss, Joe Biden, who raped me," Reade told Fox News. "Hillary Clinton has a history of enabling powerful men to cover up their sexual predatory behaviors and their inappropriate sexual misconduct. We don't need that for this country. We don't need that for our new generation coming up that wants institutional rape culture to change."

She added: "I will not be smeared, dismissed or ignored. I stand in truth and I will keep speaking out."

Biden's campaign has categorically denied Reade's accusations.

Clinton -- who was the Democratic nominee in the 2016 presidential election, later losing to now-President Trump -- joined Biden in a virtual women's town hall on Tuesday, where she officially threw her support behind the former vice president.

"Joe Biden has been preparing for this moment his entire life," Clinton said. "And for me, this is a moment that we need a leader, a president like Joe Biden."

The former Secretary of State teased her endorsement on social media before the campaign appearance.

*******************************************************

Thank you, I hope the losing streak continues.

Tara Reade calls for release of Biden's Senate records

Tara Reade, the woman who has accused Joe Biden of sexual assault, is calling on the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee to release the records from his 36 years as a senator, which are currently inaccessible to the public and are kept at the University of Delaware. Biden's campaign has denied that he sexually assaulted Reade.

"I'm calling for the release of the documents being held by the University of Delaware that contain Biden's staff personnel records because I believe it will have my complaint form, as well as my separation letter and other documents," Reade told Fox News on Tuesday. "Maybe if other staffers that have tried to file complaints would come to light -- why are they under seal? And why won't they be released to the public?"

The Daily Caller first reported Reade's calls for the release of the documents.

Fox News on Tuesday asked the University of Delaware for access to the Biden records. The university refused, saying that the papers will not be released until two years after Biden retires.

"The collection of former Vice President Biden's senatorial papers is still being processed, with many items yet to be cataloged," an email from a school spokeswoman said. "The entire collection will remain closed to the public until two years after Mr. Biden retires from public life."

Fox News reached out to the Biden campaign asking if Biden would authorize the release of the records but did not immediately receive a response.

Biden himself has not addressed the Reade allegations but his deputy campaign manager has issued a statement.

If the complaint form is in his records, it's all over for Joe. Someone turn the lights out.

Politics is a dirty game and some partisans are like dogs waging their tails over a bone when it comes to allegations against an opponent. I didn't notice your equal excitement over the countless accusations women made against R u m p, MM.

The fact that polls these days don't look good for R u m p (who may get roasted) in his race against Biden I suspect are on your mind, as well.

Biden Has Ties to Univ. of Delaware Board Members Keeping His Archive Secret

Some members of the University of Delaware Board of Trustees, which has sole authority over Joe Biden’s Senate archive, have close ties to the former vice president, Fox News reported.

Calls to make the archive public have grown over the past week as former Biden staffer Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault, which Reade says occurred in 1993 when Biden was a senator for Delaware, have garnered increasing media coverage. The Biden campaign has denied the allegations.

Biden deposited his Senate archive at the University of Delaware in 2012. Initially, the university promised to open the archive two years after Biden’s last day in public office. However, in April 2019 hours before Biden announced his presidential campaign, the university decided to keep the archive closed until December 31, 2019 or until Biden retires from public life.

The chairman of the university’s Board of Trustees is longtime Biden donor John Cochran. In 1996, Cochran bought Biden’s home for $1.2 million, shortly after which Biden’s son Hunter was hired by MBNA, where Cochran was vice chairman at the time.

Board member Terri Kelly, former CEO of W.L. Gore & Associates, donated the maximum legal amount to the Biden presidential campaign in 2019. Carol Ammon, another board member, has given $10,000 to the campaign and related PAC’s. Five additional board members have donated upwards of $1,000 to Biden and affiliated PAC’s.

While the Biden campaign has denied the allegations from Reade, Biden himself has not directly addressed the allegations, including at a virtual town hall on Tuesday on women’s issues during which he received the endorsement of Hillary Clinton. Democratic politicians including Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams have up to now backed Biden.

“I think the [Democratic National Committee] is a sham and their silence around what happened to me as a Democratic staffer is unconscionable,” Reade told National Review on Wednesday.

You know what's even more bizarre?

Someone who loves to call one man "Sleepy Joe" (as in 'not all there') yet is ready to vote for another who wondered if it was okay for people to inject disinfectants into their bodies.
