    Joe Biden Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Senate Aide In 1993

    Joe Biden Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Senate Aide In 1993 | HuffPost

    A former aide to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said this week that he sexually assaulted her in 1993, her most detailed account to date of his alleged inappropriate behavior.

    Tara Reade, who was at the time serving as an aide in Biden’s senate office, told podcast host Katie Halper that Biden kissed her and penetrated her with his fingers without her consent. Reade said she pushed Biden off of her and he allegedly became annoyed and said: “Come on, man! I heard you liked me.”

    “It was like everything shattered in that moment,” Reade told Halper in the interview, which was posted Wednesday. “He was, like, my father’s age. He was this champion of women’s rights in my eyes. I couldn’t believe it was happening.”

    Reade alleges that after she pulled away from Biden, he pointed in her face and said, “You’re nothing to me.”

    Last April, Reade was one of eight women to accuse the former vice president of inappropriate touching. Reade told the Intercept’s Ryan Grim this week that she only told the media part of her story at the time because she received an onslaught of harassment that instantly quieted her.
    The bolded above is the most disturbing part to me. The cult-like behavior Biden stans have to bully and silence a potential victim of sexual assault is abhorrent and should be condemned.

    Not surprising really. Democrats have a tendency to mistake candidates' personal sense of entitlement with "strong leadership"

    Never say that about Democrats as long as you know what Donald Trump does.

    Lot's of projection in that statement.... "cult-like????" Really.

    I suggest you remove the skyscraper from your own eyes (I suspect you would support Trump) before you worry about the splinter's in others. In other words, you have long since surrendered your moral authority since you are more than happy to engage or sanction such behaviors yourself. Pathetic.

In other words, you have long since lost your credibility to worry about the moral short-comings of others since you are more than happy to engage in such (via proxy) yourself.
    Just say you don't actually care about sexual assault and move on.

    No, but you lack the standing to even bring up this issue. I will await from someone with credibility to suggest there is something to see here.

    For one, if this were a sincere concern of yours (and everyone here knows its not), you wouldn't be Trump supporter...

    Meanwhile, I would be more concerned about the 10's of thousands of deaths that Trump's negligence may have caused. That seems a much bigger election issue to me (besides the 25 allegations of sexual misconduct).

    Someone who describes Vladimir Putin as a “compassionate, caring, visionary leader”, as Reid did, automatically has a higher bar of credibility to clear.

    Is this the same aide as in Zimmers' week old thread above? asking for a friend before they go to the trouble of getting all worked up again.

    Or does Biden have twenty accusers waiting in the wings, like Trump does?

    How much credibility does someone need to have in order to believe the allegations of a sexual assault victim? Where do you personally place that bar?

    I'm not a Trump supporter, not by a long shot. However, this thread is not about my politics. This thread is about Joe Biden and the allegations against him of sexual assault.

    This thread is not about Donald Trump and the allegations against him. If you want to make a thread about so, I'll happily engage. Please stay on topic.

    Reade's political views should not determine the credibility of her allegations. Please don't disparage a potential victim of sexual assault.

    If someone goes on and on about how Hitler wasn’t so bad, or how Stalin was really a hero, then that absolutely does affect their credibility. I would hope someone wouldn’t lie about such a thing, but I absolutely believe that someone who admires KGB Vlad that much would be willing to do so.
