Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden is facing some new and stunning allegations that are sure to rock his quickly collapsing campaign.
According to Fox News, the ex-husband of Joe Biden’s wife, Jill, has come forward to accuse the couple of lying about how they met.
Fox reports that Bill Stevenson has alleged his ex-wife was engaged in an affair with Joe Biden, and that the couple didn’t meet on a blind date, as they have claimed.
“I don’t want to hurt anyone,” Stevenson said Monday, according to Fox. “But facts are facts and what happened, happened.”
“That kind of friendly”
According to Fox, Stevenson, who is 72, is currently penning a book that includes his claim that the now-Mrs. Biden cheated on him while they were still married.
In his tell-all, Stevenson alleges that “his then-wife grew close to [Joe] Biden in 1972 while working on his first campaign to represent Delaware in the U.S. Senate,” according to Fox. “That same year, tragedy struck when [Joe] Biden’s first wife, Neilia, and infant daughter were killed in a car crash,” Fox added.
Stevenson started suspecting that something was up when his then-wife declined an offer to see Bruce Springsteen, instead opting to babysit for the now-former vice president.
“Bruce Springsteen was going to play at The Stone Balloon and I had to go to Northern New Jersey to pay him in advance,” Stevenson said in a recent interview, according to Fox. “I asked Jill to go with me and she said no — she had things to do, she had to look after Joe’s kids, Beau and Hunter.
“It was kind of a big deal to go meet Springsteen,” Stevenson noted, according to Fox. “I had no idea she and Joe were that kind of friendly.”
The future ahead
Of course, it remains unclear if these allegations are true, and they haven’t been corroborated. But even just a hint of bad behavior could bring disaster to a campaign that already has had to cope with a frontman who has multiple allegations of sexual misconduct under his belt.
And that’s not to mention the growing signs that “Joe 30330” isn’t “all there” mentally.
So far, the Biden campaign has declined to comment on the latest damaging allegations from Stevenson, although a well-structured response will likely be coming soon. Only time will tell, however, if voters buy what the Bidens are trying to sell them.
