“Over his decades-long career in the Senate, former Vice President Joe Biden was known as a demanding but fair and family-oriented boss, devoted to his home life in Delaware and committed to gender equality in his office.”

“He was not on a list of “creepy” male senators that female staffers told each other to avoid in the elevators on Capitol Hill.”

‘Manipulative, deceitful, user’: Tara Reade left a trail of aggrieved acquaintances – POLITICO

“Harriet Wrye did a double take the first time she saw Tara Reade on television lodging sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden.”

” “Jim, that’s Tara,” the 79-year-old author and psychologist called out to her husband, “but she has a different name.” “

“Wrye and her husband knew Reade as Tara McCabe, the woman who had rented a yurt on their 12-acre California property and tended to the couple’s horses — and her own — for about 10 months beginning in 2017. They were well-acquainted with their former tenant, who frequently knocked on the door of their home seeking emotional support, asking for financial help or forgiveness for late rent payments, which they granted.”

Joe Biden is conducting an unusually open and public search for a running mate, promising to pick a woman, disclosing that he is looking at about a dozen choices and even confirming specific names — all as contenders jockey for the job in plain sight.”

“But behind the scenes, two prospects with national experience who are significantly younger than Biden are emerging as the early leaders in the eyes of top Biden allies, according to interviews with a half-dozen people in frequent contact with the campaign: Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Kamala D. Harris.”

“For the past month or so, I’ve been doing a lot of reporting on Joe Biden and Tara Reade, the former Senate aide who is accusing him of sexually assaulting her in 1993.”

“Frankly, the story is a tough one to report. Memories are hazy. There were no eyewitnesses. We have yet to find documents, including the complaint that Ms. Reade said she filed with a Senate office. (That complaint detailed only harassment — not assault, according to Ms. Reade.) And as Ms. Reade insists the assault occurred, Mr. Biden denies anything happened.”

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden – Joe Biden – Medium

“April was Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Every year, at this time, we talk about awareness, prevention, and the importance of women feeling they can step forward, say something, and be heard. That belief — that women should be heard — was the underpinning of a law I wrote over 25 years ago. To this day, I am most proud of the Violence Against Women Act. So, each April we are reminded not only of how far we have come in dealing with sexual assault in this country — but how far we still have to go.”

Why I’m skeptical about Reade’s sexual assault claim against Biden: Ex-prosecutor

If we must blindly accept every allegation of sexual assault, the #MeToo movement is just a hit squad. And it’s too important to be no more than that.”
