The Washington Post editorial board published an article on Wednesday calling for former Vice President Joe Biden to publicly address a sexual assault allegation made against him by Tara Reade, a former Senate staffer.
Driving the news: Business Insider this week published accounts from two on-the-record sources corroborating parts of allegations by Reade, who alleges Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993.
Biden's campaign has told Axios that the alleged assault "absolutely did not happen." Top Democrats like Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Stacey Abrams have stood behind Biden, while others have remained silent. Biden himself has not publicly spoken about the allegation.
What they're saying: The Post's editorial board called on Biden to release old Senate records stored at the University of Delaware. Reade has said she filed a written complaint with a "Senate personnel office" in 1993, but the university said it cannot release the records until Biden "retires from public life."
"President Trump has been credibly accused of sexual assault, including rape, by dozens of women. He has responded by brushing them off, once claiming repulsively, 'Shes not my type.' It may seem unfair to hold Mr. Trumps likely rival in the 2020 race to a standard that Mr. Trump has failed to meet again and again. But Mr. Trump shouldnt be allowed to set that standard. A better man could."

The ‘Rat powers have determined that this is a good way to sweep Biden from the candidacy. They must have finally settled on a replacement.
The Wash Compost want Sleepy Joe out... they know he will never submit his papers...
I think the Crooked Hillary endorsement show where he nodded off at least twice was the turning point.
The left’s standard moral equivalency claim. The case against Biden is much more than one or two women with no other collaborating witnesses.
We cant bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell them stories that dont go anywhere. Like the time I took the fairy to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe so I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. Give me five bees for a quarter youd say. Now where were we, oh ya. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didnt have white onions because if the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones.
They just want to deal with it, so they can say “that’s been investigated already.”
Let the Democrat party languish - and taint their entire bench - before throwing Joe under the bus.
What the heck ... You need to be drunk to understand that
I recall one cuckoo who made an entirely un-credible accusation alleging an assault in a department store dressing room. Where are the others?
Homer Simpson’s senile dad still makes more sense than Slo Joe
Democrats “stand behind Biden”.
Gee, what a shocker. Those lying, hypocritical, power hungry MORONS think dragging Republicans through the mud over FAR LESS is ok.
But don’t you dare touch a hair, whether standing on his legs or not with a bouncing child, on a demented Democrat.
Joe: “I’m sorry,” Next day, it’s forgotten.
So in a fortnight they can say its old news.
Did Kirsten and Stacey just jump the shark?
Best comment of the year!
“Next day, its forgotten.”
I’m sure Tara Reade will be sitting in the front row of the presidential debate.
Kudos go to The Simpsons writers
But, it’s almost like Grandpa Abe was created for this very moment
