Former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic Party’s assumed nominee to face President Trump at the ballot box in November, is now facing a real, detailed allegation of sexual misconduct from a former staffer. This goes further than the “creepy Uncle Joe” narrative that is laughed off by Democrats, Republicans and members of the media. Tara Reade, a former aide to then-Senator Biden (D-DE), alleges that Biden “began kissing her without her permission, pushed her against a wall, reached under her skirt, and penetrated her with his fingers,” during an encounter on Capitol Hill.
Time’s Up Legal Defense, a nonprofit designed to help women combat sexual assault struggles from a legal stand point, is said to have declined Reade’s plea for help, per The Intercept. Time’s Up allegedly told Reade that their nonprofit status, and Biden's political stature, prevented them from helping her come forward with her story. The Intercept also pointed out that a top official at the public relations firm tied to Time’s Up is advising Biden’s campaign. Reade says that she brought her story to the campaigns of Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), but was given no help.
The latter sentence embodies the hypocrisy entwined within the handling, at least thus far, of this graphic allegation against the presumptive Democratic nominee. Sens. Harris and Warren, alongside other Democratic colleagues, were at the forefront of the blisteringly partisan fight against the confirmation of soon-to-be Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Before the allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Kavanaugh became public knowledge, Democratic Senators were determined to derail Kavanaugh’s nomination. Their opposition had little to do with Dr. Ford's allegations, and everything to do with preventing a Conservative jurist from sitting on the Supreme Court. Democrats in the upper chamber saw the misconduct allegations from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as an avenue to do so, and their allies in the mainstream media absolutely crucified Kavanaugh before he was even able to testify.
Democratic Senators were very obviously using Dr. Ford’s visibly painful allegations as a delay tactic on Kavanaugh’s nomination, in hopes of taking back the Senate majority in the November midterm elections. Fortunately, their partisan endeavor failed; now-Justice Kavanaugh was given his well-earned seat on the bench and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) remains Majority Leader of the upper chamber.
The hypocrisy that I previously alluded to is this: the same Democrats who wasted no time trying to derail Kavanaugh’s nomination as soon as the misconduct allegations were made public, have remained silent on the allegation against Biden nearly a week after Reade went public. Many of these Democrats have endorsed Biden for president. Leading up to and during Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the Left invented the “Believe All Women” standard for the handling of sexual assault allegations. This nonsense standard, which holds no legal standing, very obviously violates due process and goes against the fundamentals of fair jurisprudence, but this standard is embraced by Democrats.
