(UnitedVoice.com) – Earlier this year, a former Biden staffer shocked the political world when she alleged Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) sexually assaulted her in the 1990s. Biden has denied the charges and received the benefit of the doubt from prominent Democratic women.
However, those same women, including Biden’s vice presidential running mate Kamala Harris (D-CA), who say they are “with Biden,” were adamantly against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the fall of 2018. At the time they declared they were “with her,” referring to Christine Blazey Ford and her unsubstantiated claim of misconduct by Kavanaugh. At the time, they said all women should be heard and believed. Apparently, that’s not true if the man who allegedly committed sexual assault is a Democrat running for president.
WOW! This poor womanl😢
3rd generation Dem who's been relatively silent.
Not in the media or at every mic she can get her hands on. Democrats are filthy vile immoral pigs with no conscience! #metoo movement is a joke
Tara Reade speaks out https://t.co/jyfT8o3vzR

Tara Reade now says the Democratic Party is complicit in Biden’s past behavior and rape culture, and that they are gaslighting survivors of sexual crimes. She said while the party claims to be a champion of the “#MeToo” movement, they’ve been anything but heroes. Reade went on to say that some of the Democratic Party elite aren’t just enablers, they’re perpetrators.
To make her point, Reade pointed out the accused sexual predator and former President, Bill Clinton, was once again featured as a speaker at the Democratic National Convention. Reade called his participation in the convention “unconscionable” and a “slap in the face to survivors.”
Biden has refuted Reade’s claims and has strongly challenged her credibility. While it may not be provable now, it’s no different than the Kavanaugh hearings where accusers were given the benefit of the doubt in the court of political opinion. Instead, Reade is left to defend her integrity by herself.
Sadly, perhaps it’s the end of the #MeToo movement?
