The simple answer is...
this will shock you...
but it's just so damn obvious...
here it is...
Biden supporters DON'T CARE if Biden rapes their neighbors...as long as he stops Trump.
Let's just admit that sexual assault allegations from decades past with or without corroborating evidence are simply one variable in the political calculus required to make a choice as to who we think will best represent our own interests and beliefs.
Lots of good people did that calculus last time around too, and on the whole, chose to vote for Trump in spite of those charges. Not because they are evil, but rather because they performed the calculation, added up his plusses, subtracted his minuses, and chose the one that *best* fit their needs.
Just like a lot of dems will do for Biden.
Biden's Senate Chief of Staff and Deputy Chief of Staff during 1992–1993 and the office's long-term executive assistant expressed doubts as to the veracity of Reade's account, saying they would have recalled the complaints had she made them, and that such behavior seemed uncharacteristic of him. Melissa Lefko, a comtemporary staff assistant, said she had never experienced harassment and thought his office was a "very supportive environment for women." Reade said she reported sexual harassment to her supervisors in Biden's office at the time, but her recollection of to whom has shifted and none of her former supervisors recall any such event.

There are several recent threads regarding the sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden; however, in reading an article on the topic which includes direct quotes from one of the people that Tara Reade told about the assault (her neighbor at the time Lynda LaCasse), there's a different concept to consider other than the assault itself. Based on what I read, I am astounded at the complete lack of personal integrity exhibited by this person, who I believe is a fairly accurate example of the "typical" leftist mind.
Here is a link to the article I read:
Article with quotes from Lynda LaCasse
Here is the excerpt that irks me:
LaCasse told Business Insider: "I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him. 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."
LaCasse said Reade was "upset" when she told her about the allegation and "the more she talked about it, the more she started crying." She said she remembered urging Reade to file a police report but did not recall specific details from the alleged incident, such as the location or remarks Biden allegedly made to Reade.
"I don't remember all the details," LaCasse told Business Insider. "I remember the skirt. I remember the fingers. I remember she was devastated."
LaCasse, a retired staffer of San Luis Obispo General Hospital, said she lived in the same apartment complex as Reade in Morro Bay, Calif. She recalled how the two of them had talked about "violent stories" they've experienced, which was when Reade told her "about the senator that she had worked for and he put his hand up her skirt."
"I personally am a Democrat, a very strong Democrat," LaCasse said. "I'm for Biden, regardless. But still, I have to come out and say this."
This woman has direct and reliable knowledge that Joe Biden sexually assaulted Tara Reade, yet still says "I'm for Biden, regardless." It seems this is the presiding mentality of the left, "by any means necessary", with absolutely no regard for morality, integrity, or even general human decency. There is definitely something wrong with the wiring upstairs with this lady. The more alarming notion is that nearly all the "very strong Democrats" I have encountered exhibit the same soulless iniquity. I can't imagine what could fix this deranged thinking.
I hope Biden gets held accountable. He'll probably just shout "You're a dirty-rotten no-good dog-faced liar!" and feign consternation like he does every time someone calls out what a scoundrel he is.
As a precursor, can we not talk about Trump in any ensuing discussion? That's not the topic.

The Tman grabbed em by the p***y, and paid off a pornstar did he not? Now I support the tman in most things but not that kinda stuff.
Lets face it, men in powerful positions take advantage of their power regardless of party affiliation.

Or another way to look at it, do you kill all 100 men knowing one is innocent sacrificing your individual morality in order make sure the 99 murderers are killed
Knowing that releasing them may be a greater crime then killing the one innocent man?

AOC is a Sanders supporter she doesn't want to support Biden for president. Having said that If the same credible allegations were made about Sanders she might sing a different tune. She is using these allegations to raise the question that maybe Biden shouldn't be the nominee.
