‘Believing women…whether it’s politically convenient or not’: AOC Likes Article Corroborating Tara Reade’s Claims Against Biden

In a surprise twist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez liked an article on Twitter Tuesday that supported a woman who has long claimed she was sexually assaulted decades ago by former Vice President Joe Biden.

The article posted to Twitter had two independent witnesses corroborating the accusations made by Tara Reade, a former Biden aide, regarding sexual assault allegations that resurfaced in March against the Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful.

Moreover, Ocasio-Cortez’s liked Tweet from Jessica Valenti, a feminist author and GenMag columnist, read: “Believing women means doing so whether it’s politically convenient or not.”

Reade, a former Senate staffer for Biden, is alleging that the former lawmaker sexually assaulted her in 1993 when she was working in his Washington D.C. office. Her brother, Collin Moulton, also came forward telling Business Insider he remembered his sister saying Biden “had his hand under her clothes at some point.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter reaction comes after she pledged last week to vote for Biden in November and as so many of her Democratic colleagues, who were part of the outspoken “believe women” crowd during the Brett Kavanaugh supreme court confirmation hearings and the #MeToo Movement, remain silent on Reade’s accusations. For example, The Daily Caller’s Henry Rodgers recently asked every Senate Democrat to comment on Reade’s claims, giving them 24 hours to respond, but not a single one responded.

Several sources close to Reade, both then and now, have since come forward to corroborate her claims and Rep. Ocasio Cortez’s liked Tweet brings some of the most recent of those to light.

Lynda LaCasse, Reade’s former neighbor, told the Insider Tuesday of Reade’s claims, “This happened, and I know it did because I remember talking about it.” LaCasse was Reade’s next-door neighbor at the time, according to the news site.

The Insider also spoke with Lorraine Sanchez, Reade’s former colleague in a California state senator’s office in the mid-90’s, who “recalls Reade complaining at the time that her former boss in Washington, DC, had sexually harassed her, and that she had been fired after raising concerns.”

In a recent interview with The Intercept, Reade described an anonymous phone call her mother made to “Larry King Live” asking for advice for her daughter who was “sexually harassed and retaliated against” while working for a “prominent senator.” The Media Research Center later uncovered the damning clip from a 1993 airing of King’s show on CNN (above).

Biden, himself, hasn’t acknowledged Reade’s allegations, but his campaign continues to deny them.

San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”

“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.

The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”

Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
