Content note: This story contains graphic discussion of sexual assault.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has been accused of sexual assault from a former staffer. The alleged victim has gone on the record with her name to tell her story, which occurred in 1993, on a podcast called The Katie Halpern Show. Please note that the story is graphic and detailed, and Revelist has not been able to independently verify the allegations.
The alleged victim's name is Tara Reade.
Tara Reade was a Senate aide for Biden in 1993. On Halpern's podcast, Reade described a disturbing incident that allegedly occurred at the Capitol. As she describes it, she was asked to fetch a gym bag for Biden and drop it off to him. When she approached him, he was speaking with someone else.
She's reached out to Time's Up.
Reade reached out to Time's Up for assistance, but was told that the organization could not investigate her claims, reported The Intercept. Biden is a candidate for public office, and Time's Up could lose their nonprofit status per federal regulations.
Revelist has reached out to the Biden campaign and Time's Up for comment.
