Former San Luis Obispo resident accuses Biden of sexual assault

Former San Luis Obispo resident Tara Reade accused Joe Biden in March of sexual misconduct, a claim that she now describes as sexual assault, according to the Intercept.

Adding support to Reade’s allegation is a recently discovered recording of Reade’s mother Jeanette Altimus calling in to “Larry King Live” from her home in San Luis Obispo. Altimus called King in Aug. 1993, the same month Reade stopped working for then-Sen. Joe Biden.

Partial transcript of Altimus’ call to King:

King said, “San Luis Obispo, California, hello.”

Altimus said, “Yes, hello. I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all. And the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him.”

King said, “In other words, she has a story to tell, but out of respect for the person she worked for, she didn’t tell it.”

Reade contends Biden shoved his hand under her skirt and fondled her while they stood in a Senate corridor. Reade then reported the incident to her superiors, who ignored at the time, she said.

Biden denies both the allegation he inappropriately touched Reade, and that Reade made a complaint in 1993.

On April 9, Reade filed a criminal complaint against Biden.

Apparently, this particular episode of Larry King Live as been removed from google.

The criminal part of this case is the media ignoring it.

Creepy Joe. How many videos have we seen women or girls recoil from his inappropriate touching? Too many.

If Biden wanted to put an end to this he would instruct the University of Delaware to release his senate papers which they hold. He has not. In fact, the UOD has put his papers in lockdown by his request, until he is two years out of public office. The papers would show if a complaint of harassment had been filed. End of story. The simple fact that he has blocked this is an indication of guilt. His president did the same by refusing to release his transcripts from Occidental where he had enrolled under their foreign student program.

Why would he have donated them to the university if there was damning evidence against him? Makes no sense. But keep spouting the “birther” stuff. We all remember well how Obama’s father had him smuggled into America when he was a baby so he could be the first Muslim president. Please!

27 years ago. Sounds bogus to me. I hope someone can check up on this and lay it to rest if not a credible complaint.

Did you feel the same way with the accusations against Kavanaugh?

Should have gone to the police or public along time ago.


derasmus

I don’t know about the police but I understand she did inform others at the time but her complaint was quickly relegated to the “round file”


Got to remember society was a little different 30 or so years ago.

Reportedly, Tara Reade in 1993 spoke to her mother, who died four years ago, her brother, and an anonymous friend who won’t come forward. True or not seems to be a standard political attack.

Just as with Donald Trump, Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Bill Clinton and a litany of other politicians, who cares?

#MeToo

We must believe women who have the Courage to come forward.

Instead of blindly believing or disbelieving women, we should look at the facts, look how the parties involved have lived their lives, review all pertinent information, then decide that Uncle Joe is a perv.
