When Reade initially came out about her experience with Biden, she told The Union that he did uncomfortable things like “put his hand on my shoulder and run his finger up my neck.” Reade also said that she cut ties with Biden’s office over an early 1993 staff argument. According to Reade, Biden wanted her to serve drinks because he liked her legs. Reade says she didn’t hear this directly from Biden but she learned of it during her argument with staff. Reade refused to serve the drinks, which she believes was a move that affected her career.

“My life was hell,” Reade said. “This was about power and control. I couldn’t get a job on the Hill.” She eventually left Biden’s office in August of 1993.

Now, Reade is speaking out even more with a sexual assault allegation against Biden. Katie Halper posted an excerpt from an interview done with Reade to Twitter around 2 a.m. on Wednesday, writing “This is a story that @ReadeAlexandra has been trying to tell since it happened in 1993. It’s a story about sexual assault, retaliation and silencing. #meToo.”

There is a certain sanctimonious fellow here that will reject this out of hand, even though he usually says "#BELIEVEZALLWOMYNZ"

Can you transfer my post over there? I had looked for a virus thread before posting but didn 't find one. Did not occur to me that it would be under Lynchburg Life.

Kinda wish that fox news would back off for now showing how senile Biden is becoming. Last thing we need now is to give dems an excuse to pull him from the ballet.

I don’t care where you fall on the political spectrum, Biden in a tutu is appointment television.

the idea the cuomo would step in and be a viable candidate is unrealistic. they don't really have anyone. and DNC favorability is like at an all time low. pulling a stunt like this in the face of bernie would be a death nail.

The near bankrupt DNC can't even orchestrate a primary in the midwest let alone some vast global conspiracy to replace the sitting president with a near invalid.

There is a possible reality that this virus is completely exacerbated by politicians and deep pocket moguls. but it doesn't make the thing any less real. Times like these are when the rich get richer. and not from gvt handouts. the injection of cash into the markets by those with the means to do it is when they will be able to see 30-40% growth on their investments. for example the guy that injects 100 million (that he amazingly pulled out before the crash) in the market and rides the recovery will pocket 30 million dollars. meanwhile the have nots are encouraged by the gvt to pull money out of their 401k's to pay bills.

the rich love recession and have been waiting for it for some time.

Ok. I’m going to just throw this out there. I have no sources. I have nothing to back this up and admit it would be a long shot, but not as much as it would have been 60 days ago.




Joe Biden will not be the Democrat nominee for President. He has basically disappeared during this crisis. When he has emerged he’s looked anything but strong effective or reassuring. People who are looking for a Trump alternative are not finding it in Biden. With the Democrats convention most likely being virtual and the excuse to be able to use a lot of Emergency and extraordinary procedures they could easily Nominate someone else. If they were really ruthless they would stage a public event with him, waving to First Responders, Soup Kitchen etc. and then report that he suddenly came down with COVID symptoms and will be unable to continue as a candidate for the nomination

That’s my conspiracy theory. I’m sticking with it. :D

They may not be behind it, but they’ll leverage it as best they can to their advantage.

So will President Trump and Republicans.

That’s politics. So what?

Yeah. Agreed. It'll be interesting to see how both parties approach this thing. Obviously it is already being used to promote political gain.

I'm still waiting for ballcoach to explain why and how the DNC spread the virus worldwide but it looks like that isn't going to happen.

Both sides will absolutely leverage it. No doubt
But ballcoach accuses the DNC of creating and launching the virus and killing 10’s of thousands across the globe in an effort to defeat Trump in 2020. He has not provided proof of their role in mass murder but you would think as a person who was nominally a police officer wouldn’t through accusations around, especially murder, without proof

I didn't expect Bernie to step down this early so the question now is will he fully support Biden? His support of Hillary never seemed genuine to me and it may have hurt her in the long run. Who knows though.

Biden vs Trump debates will be interesting to say the least.

speaking with the many bernie supporters i know his flame burned out. for being a revolutionary he voted for the largest corporate power grab in history. and did nothing to actually help his base by calling for rent strikes, utility strikes. all these his supporters would have done. He came to heal at hillary's side like a dog and will now do that same thing with biden. A complete weakling incapable of defeating anyone.
