With just weeks to go until the presidential election, Joe Biden is facing some major problems. One is a New York Post report alleging that former vice president was more than aware of his son’s overseas business dealings. Another is a sexual assault allegation that the Democrat White House hopeful just can’t seem to shake.
According to Breitbart, Tara Reade, the former Senate staffer who says Biden sexually assaulted her in the early 1990s, has penned a new memoir about her life since coming forward with her claims — and the tell-all is set to be released just one week before Election Day, leaving Democrats blindsided and with little time to fight back.
Revisiting Reade’s claim
Reade first went public back in March with claims that Biden had sexually assaulted her in 1993, when he was a senator from Delaware and she worked for the Senate.
Reade wasn’t the first to make a sexual assault claim against Biden, who had previously been accused of touching several women inappropriately and without their consent. Reade’s claim, however, has been the most serious one brought against the current White House hopeful.
Biden, for his part, first responded to Reade’s claim back in May. “No, it is not true,” he said at the time, according to The New York Times. “I’m saying unequivocally it never, never happened.”
He added: “Believing women means taking the woman’s claim seriously… But in the end, in every case, the truth is what matters. And in this case, the truth is, the claims are false.”
After several similar denials, and some help from the mainstream media, the Tara Reade story more or less disappeared — until now.
As Breitbart reports, Reade is now getting ready to release a memoir titled Left Out: When The Truth Doesn’t Fit In.
A synopsis of the book cited by Breitbart says Reade “shares the aftermath of the re-victimization of speaking out about her sexual assault, with then-Sen. Joe Biden in 1993, where the shaming, attacks and threats instigated by the media set [sic] her into a personal tailspin.”
It continues: “Tara-rized viciously by cyberbullies, receiving death threats, and fearing for her life and those of her family, Tara tells how living with no regret and coming forward was right for her conscious [sic]. The moment that defines Tara will not confine, but instead move her forward by reclaiming her identity and pulling back together the pieces of life left.
The memoir is slated for release on Oct. 27, just one week before the Nov. 3 election, though Reade says that’s purely coincidence.
“It doesn’t have anything to do with the election,” Reade told Fox News, according to Breitbart. “I do discuss Joe Biden and how I experienced Joe Biden as a staffer and as a woman. And it was not a positive experience, yet he is going to the most powerful position in the Western world.”
