Even the mainstream media can’t save Joe Biden from the sexual scandal he created.
He’ll have to answer to the law for what he’s done.
Joe Biden got hit with criminal charges. He thought he had gotten away clean.
This isn’t the first time Joe Biden has been accused of touching women inappropriately.
The former Vice President was accused by Former Nevada State Rep. Lucy Flores of kissing her hair without her consent backstage while he was campaigning to help Flores get elected.
“The vice-president of the United States of America had just touched me in an intimate way reserved for close friends, family, or romantic partners — and I felt powerless to do anything about it,” she wrote in an op-ed in New York Magazine’s The Cut.
Other women and videos came forward but Joe Biden just justified his behavior.
“I’ve always tried to make a human connection ― that’s my responsibility, I think,” Biden said in a video uploaded to Twitter. “I shake hands, I hug people, I grab men and women by the shoulders and say, ‘You can do this.’”
With that history, it wasn’t surprising that he’s now facing more serious accusations.
Tara Reade claims that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in the early ‘90s.
“I handed him the thing. He greeted me. He remembered my name. And then we were alone,” Reade said during a podcast interview last month.
“It was the strangest thing. There was no like exchange really. He just had me up against the wall. I was wearing like a skirt, a business skirt.” Reade continued, “It happened all at once…his hands were on me and underneath my clothes. Yeah, and he went down my skirt but then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers, and he was kissing me at the same time, and he was saying something to me. He said several things. I can’t remember everything he said.”
The mainstream media decided to ignore the story or try to discredit it.
Yet despite that, Tara Reade decided to press criminal charges.
According to The Daily Wire:
Tara Reade, a former staffer to then-Senator Joe Biden, has reportedly filed a formal criminal complaint against the now-presidential candidate over an alleged sexual assault from the early 90s.
“Late Thursday afternoon, Reade filed a report of the incident with the sexual assault unit of the Washington, DC, Metropolitan Police Department,” Business Insider reported. “Business Insider has obtained a public incident report recording the allegation.”
Joe Biden claimed at the time of the Kavanaugh hearings that the public should always be more inclined to side with the women.
If that was the standard, then Joe Biden is guilty.
But there should be a fairer standard than that.
Gender doesn’t determine truth.
The Democrats had an insane standard for Brett Kavanaugh that he was guilty by default of being a man.
Joe Biden shouldn’t automatically be assumed to be guilty because he’s a man.
While the statute of limitations on this charge expired, the media should accurately inform the public of the information and investigate Reade’s claims thoroughly.
And voters should decide if Joe Biden is the sort of person they would want to see as their president.
