"Tara Reade has been trying to have her story told since 1993, when she was working as a staff assistant to then Senator Joe Biden."

Harrowing stuff, if you can listen to this and not believe that he raped this woman I dont know what to say.

Warning: sexual assault content in both link and spoiler tag:


She is asked by someone else to deliver a gym bag to Biden, down towards the capitol. She arrives, they end up alone in a side area, there wasn't even any exchange or delivery. He immediately pushes her up against the wall, starts kissing her, then penetrates her under the skirt with his fingers. He said "do you wanna go somewhere else" while it was happening. She pulled away once he was finished, clearly upset. He then said "come on, man! I thought/heard you liked me!" He looked annoyed. He then pointed his finger at her and said "you're nothing. Nothing" Then soon afterwords attempted to console her by grabbing her by the shoulders and said "you're ok, you're fine". She says that the "you're nothing" exchange has stuck with her ever since. "People wanna know why women don't come forward.. that's a good example why"

This deserves its own thread. The other one doesn't focus on the explicit allegation of rape, which is new news.

Please don't bury this.

This deserves its own thread since it's directly about the allegation itself.

So are we supposed to just swallow our values for the next seven months and stump for Biden or what.

if the DNC valued women and minorities like they claim to, he would be forced to resign.

Very brave of her. I want to say this will make a difference, but honestly I don't have too much faith in many of my fellow citizens any more.

Well, that thread was a shitshow and the early pages are a fucking graveyard due to people not shutting up about the primary.

It deserves its own thread

This. Biden should go, DNC should stand firmly behind Sanders and make it crystal clear that 2020 election will be about real change and firm leadership after the Trump disaster.

If the DNC knows there is truth to this they would force Biden to step aside but they won't and we'll be stuck in a shit sandwich come November.

If anything happens from this, Bernie would be the last person to get the nomination.
The voters picked a moderate and the delegates will back a moderate.

I've already been very vocal for the past two years that I wouldn't vote for Joe Biden in a general election. I'm going to do what I can to convince the people in my circle, including my family and friends in PA, to sit this one out and vote downticket only. What Biden is accused of by the victim here is horrible. Democrats are scarcely better than Republicans if we pick a nominee that is credibly accused of sexual assault, I'm sorry.

We need more women and more young candidates moving forward. There are abusers among all demographics but old rich white men are particularly risky.

Never gonna happen.

The DNC is as backed by billionaires are the GOP is, they will never get behind Bernie when their bottom dollar is on the line.

The DNC doesn't care about people, they care about money. So they'll throw every woman, POC and minority voter under the proverbial bus before they let a socialist at least TRY to correct the obviously broken status quo. SSDD.

I hate this fucking country.

Nobody should be surprised that Biden is bonafide rapist. Men in power like him can get away with anything.

I don't blame anyone who decides to stay home in November instead of voting for this monster. People shouldn't be guilt trip to "vote blue no matter what" if people like Biden are their only choice.

(reposting from other thread)

Every alleged rape and harassment victim is worth listening to, and this is no exception. Absolutely despicable if true, and honestly Biden kinda has public appearances against him. Many people already see him as this "creepy uncle Joe" who seems incapable of not inappropriately touching women. Obviously I hope this isn't the case, because then my bets on Biden losing to Trump grow even higher, but this needs to be dealt with as quickly as possible. If proven, Biden needs to step down, no sane person should question that.

Not surprised in the least, dude literally borderline fondles women/little girls on camera. America is one dumb ass country for choosing Biden over Sanders. Now with this story + Joe's already laundry list of problems, we have no chance in November. That's what you get for choosing another garbage moderate candidate. Good job, guys.

I don't know how it could be proven, she even admits there were no witnesses and it happened too long ago. If true, we can only hope other women step forward because this never an isolated incident.

If this is true, then damn, that’s awful.

Will voters care that much? History shows that voters seem to give a lot of leeway these days. Similar to the Kavanaugh hearing, unless there is like video/audio evidence, it seems to be overlooked by many.

Yeah, I dont blame people for not voting anymore. I used to. Its up to the people who do vote to give their endorsement to the person that is the best candidate. And with the choice either Corporate welfare Party or Corporate welfare lite Party. Its hard to judge. Look at those Iraq war votes and tell me the democrats have values.

Who really could review Bidens recorded history as a politician and give an endorsement ?

This woman sounds credible. IMO. Thats all im going to add.

Well that's extremely unfortunate, not only for the victim but for all of us that Joe was a scumbag because it gives that jackass president of ours a path to four more years.

He finally has something on Biden and Bernie isn't getting picked by the DNC because he wants to take money out of their pockets. I'd like to think they'll put the country over their finances but they won't.

Not the victim's fault at all for coming forward though. She should have never had to experience it in the first place.

Maybe if there wasn't coronavirus going on. Way too much shit for this story to get the traction it deserves.
