If the Democratic Party thinks that Joe Biden stands a chance against Donald Trump in November, they’ve got another thing coming.
The former Vice President has been a train wreck on the campaign trail as of late, having not only cast doubts upon his own mental acuity with a number of ridiculous gaffes, but he has also repeatedly lost control of his temper, lashing out at campaign event attendees on several occasions.
Then, as if to put the nail in his coffin, a former staffer to the longtime politician has now made a credible claim of sexual assault against “creepy” Joe – further alienating many young Democratic voters whose presumed morality won’t allow them to vote for someone whose behavior was so unfathomably foul.
Now, as many within the Democratic Party attempt to downplay these stunning allegations, further corroboration of the story has arrived.
Lynda LaCasse, a former neighbor to Tara Reade, says she and Reade discussed her alleged sexual assault allegation against former Vice President Joe Biden between 1995 and 1996, telling Business Insider: “This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it.”
In an interview with the AP, Reade detailed a 1993 encounter that she says occurred when she was asked by a supervisor to bring Biden his gym bag, as he was on his way down to the Senate gymnasium. She says Biden pushed her against a wall in the basement of a Capitol Hill office building, groped her, and penetrated her with his fingers.
This friend’s recollection appears to be solid.
“I remember her saying, here was this person that she was working for and she idolized him,” said LaCasse. “And he kind of put her up against a wall. And he put his hand up her skirt and he put his fingers inside her. She felt like she was assaulted, and she really didn’t feel there was anything she could do.”
“She was crying,” LaCasse continued. “She was upset. And the more she talked about it, the more she started crying. I remember saying that she needed to file a police report.”
“I don’t remember all the details,” she added. “I remember the skirt. I remember the fingers. I remember she was devastated.”
With only about half a year remaining before the general election, the Democrats appear to be stuck with Joe Biden as their presumptive nominee – a fact that almost guarantees a landslide victory for Donald Trump.
