A woman named Tara Reade who worked for Joe Biden when he was a senator says the now presidential canidate sexually assaulted her in 1993. Minnesota Democrats refuse to acknowledge her allegations.
Alpha News contacted every US democrat from Minnesota with one question: do you plan to acknowledge or consider the allegations made by Tara Reade who says Biden touched her, kissed her and penetrated her with his fingers without consent?
Democratic Representatives Angie Craig, Dean Phillips, Betty McCollum, Ilhan Omar, Collin Peterson and Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith all failed to respond to this statement request that was sent two days before the publication of this article.
However, Minnesota’s most prominent left leaning politicians have not been so bashful with their commentary on other alleged sexual assaults in the past.
In 2018, Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed. During his confirmation hearing, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accused him of raping her at a high school party. While these accusations were never vindicated, Minnesota Democrats took them very seriously and praised Ford even months after she left the public eye.
Klobuchar said that Ford’s swearing in before the Senate is “what courage looks like.”

Omar was straightforward with her remarks during the confirmation hearing.
I believe Christine Blasey Ford.

Omar then doubled down on her position one year later.
I believed Christine Blasey Ford a year ago. I believe Christine Blasey Ford today.
I believe survivors.

Smith characterized Ford’s accusations as “very serious.”
These are very serious allegations. Both Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford have agreed to testify in front of the Judiciary Committee and that needs to happen. And we must have a full and thorough investigation before anything else can happen with this nomination.

McCollum also voiced her public support for Kavanaugh’s accuser.

Henry Rodgers from the Daily Caller also reached out to all Democratic Senators recently, asking if they plan to consider Reade’s assault accusation. None of them responded to his request.
