Former Senate Staffer Tara Reade has told reporters that in 1993, her boss, Senator Joe Biden, pushed her up against a wall in the Senate complex, put one hand in her shirt, and another under her skirt, and penetrated her with his fingers.
By the time of the alleged assault, she had already complained of a sexist atmosphere in Biden’s office and of sexual harassment. Reade also says that her superiors removed some of her key professional responsibilities after the assault.
A former Biden intern has previously confirmed to the Washington Post that Reade was indeed abruptly removed as their supervisor.
Two women told Business Insider that Tara Reade, a former Senate staffer who has accused Joe Biden of sexual assault, mentioned the alleged incident to them in the mid-1990s, around the time she says it occurred.
Lynda LaCasse, who once lived next to Reade, and Lorraine Sanchez, who worked with Reade in the California legislature, both say that Reade told them she had been fired from a job for reporting sexual harassment. Though Sanchez didn’t recall Reade telling her that Biden was the perpetrator, or that the misconduct in question was a sexual assault, the story LaCasse heard lines up closely with the one Reade has taken to the press.
“I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him,” LaCasse told Business Insider. “And he kind of put her up against a wall. And he put his hand up her skirt and he put his fingers inside her. She felt like she was assaulted, and she really didn’t feel there was anything she could do.” Reade was in tears as she told the story, LaCasse added.
On Friday (4.24.2020), the Intercept confirmed that a woman matching the description of Reade’s mother called into the Larry King Show to ask advice for her daughter, who had experienced “problems” in the office of a “prominent senator.”
The Business Insider report provides further, and arguably even more significant, corroboration of Reade’s story.
Reade has said consistently that she informed her mother, brother, and a friend of the assault at the time. Previous reporting by the New York Times and the Post confirmed that Reade did disclose the story to her brother.
This is not the first time Reade has accused Biden of inappropriate behavior. In 2019, she was one of over half a dozen women to come forward with claims that Biden touched or kissed them in ways that made them feel uncomfortable.
As a senator, Biden had stroked her hair and touched her without her consent, she said.

Nothing he can say absolutely nothing, or at most no comment if some reporter forgets their place and asks a question and the hypocrites on the left (please note not all people on the left will fall into this category) will still line up behind him because orange man worse.

He could say something like...
“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. I just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything! Grab 'em by the pussy."

A lot of times when driving, I get mad at the person in front of me going 12 mph. I openly talk about running them off the road and putting two in their skull... Thing is... I've never actually done that. So should I still be treated as a murderer?
