Will Democrats ‘speak truth to power’ and ‘believe all women’ or will they go back to Clinton-era suppression of sexual scandal.
With MeToo allegations rising against Joe Biden, this is a particularly tricky path for Democrats to navigate. It’s made even more complicated considering how many of his surrogates have loudly presumed the guilt of Judge Kavanaugh (looking at YOU Kamala).
Worse yet, Biden will have to navigate his own record of wanting to ‘beat up’ Trump over alleged mistreatment of women and his PERSONAL high-profile role in the ‘high tech lynching’ of Justice Clarence Thomas.
Before we look at the Democrat Dilemma, here is a recap of the allegations against him:
A Biden staffer claimed that he assaulted her in 1992 when she an errand she was asked to run for him left the two of them alone.
Tara Reade revealed the graphic details of her accusation in an interview on Wednesday with journalist and podcaster Katie Harper.
Reade said that she was sent to rush a gym bag to Biden, who was a U.S. senator at the time, when he accosted her in a side area and allegedly sexually assaulted her.
“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing. There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall,” Reade said.
“His hands were on me and underneath my clothes,” she went on, explaining with graphic detail what he went on to do to her.
She claimed that he was kissing her during the assault and asked her if she wanted to go “somewhere else.”
After the assault, she says he said to her, “C’mon man, I heard you liked me.” —Blaze
Having seen Biden’s own campaign to destroy Justice Clarance Thomas, and his surrogates’ campaign to destroy Justice Kavanaugh, it will be interesting to see what excuses they trot out for why Biden shouldn’t suffer the same treatment they did.
Obviously, ‘that was decades ago’ will not be an effective dodge for the crowd that was so recently building a case around High School yearbooks and questions about flatulence.
There’s yet another wrinkle in that story. A big one.

So much for his ‘Mr. Integrity’ act.
Do you think his play of ‘tapping’ a woman for his running mate is going to be enough to bury this story?
