Tara Reade Breaks Her Silence

Former Senate staffer Tara Reade, who came forward last year alleging that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993, is speaking out again.

Democratic Debate

After New York City mayoral candidate Scott Stringer invoked her during the June 2nd Democratic primary debate, Tara Reade called him out.

Stringer was accused of kissing and groping a volunteer who worked for him during his tenure at the New York State Assembly. The volunteer, Jean Kim, claims that he “inappropriately and relentlessly pursued a sexual relationship” with her.

Stringer has strongly denied these allegations, but when the subject came up during the debate, he took it one step further.

The debate moderator asked Stringer point blank if Kim was “lying” about her claims. Of course, as a Democrat, this question is difficult. Even if he knows for a fact that she is lying, he can’t say it, because it would go against the left’s #BelieveAllWomen narrative.

Instead, he invoked Tara Reade, stating: “So I believe that women should be heard, I believe that Joe Biden’s accuser should be heard, and then, facts kick in. And what I’ve tried to say is that there have been inconsistencies and I’ve denied the allegations.”

“It’s up to the voters to look at the facts,” Stringer continued. “There’s a number of media outlets that are reporting more facts every day, including tonight in the Intercept, and I ask people to judge the facts. This is something that happened 20 years ago. I do believe that Jean should be heard. I’ve said that on day one, I continue to say it, but I also have to say that these allegations are false and that there are inconsistencies.”

Reade’s Response

Reade wasn’t happy with Stringer’s comments, firing back on social media.

“Stop using my name right now Scott Stringer to defend yourself,” she tweeted.  “There was no investigation into Biden. Do not use my case as an example of your alleged innocence. This is ghoulish. Sexual assault is non partisan.”

In a statement to Fox News, Reade discussed her frustration.

“I think it’s appalling that after no proper investigation into Biden other Democrats are using my case as a blueprint to get around sexual misconduct allegations,” she told the news outlet. “This is the height of hypocrisy and exposes the craven reality of how Democratic leadership operates and does not care about sexual violence or protecting victims.”

The Bottom Line

Though Joe Biden is innocent until proven guilty, it is appallingly hypocritical that Tara Reade’s allegations were not investigated.

Allegations against Donald Trump, and other conservatives like Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, are covered relentlessly by the mainstream media, and investigated even if there is no evidence. Why aren’t Democrats held to the same standard?

The fact that Stringer, a relatively unknown Democrat candidate, would feel comfortable invoking Reade in his own defense shows that the left doesn’t actually care about “victims.” They only care about using them to gain more power.
