Joe Biden, on the other hand, has zero explaining to do.

"IMHO, this opens the way for HRC to “save” the nation...."

My, no primary election needed. That sure says a great deal about principles. Bernie slinks off to isolate in one of his four well earned homes, while millions are designated separate but equal citizens who are forbidden to work, and yes, by all means please appoint a VP or even presidential candidate to serve as immediate replacement for Joe Biden. What's not to like about those principles. Maybe we can tear down some statues and designate some words hate speech to divide and distract the masses.

Was Joe Biden the only man in that office? The way this is framed in 1996....it could have been another aide.

David O White

I will not vote for either of the creeps running for president. I guess I will not be voting. I'm 71 years old. It just doesn't matter anymore. I fear for the future of my kids and grandkids but they will have to take up the fight.

The Twisted Genius

Walrus,

The court document mentions sexual harassment and not "or worse," nor does it name Biden as the perpetrator. Here's what it says:

“On several occasions Petitioner related a problem that she was having at work regarding sexual harassment, in U.S. Senator Joe Biden’s office. Petitioner told me she eventually struck a deal with the chief of staff of the Senator’s office and left her position.”

Doesn't matter. This is not going away. Judging by Trump's reaction, my guess is that this negates both sides' ability to use sexual misconduct as a campaign issue.

David Solomon

I am with David O White. I would never consider voting for either Biden or Trump. Both are variations of the same trash.

Deap

David O. White, how much attention are you paying to your local school board races, if you truly fear for your children's future. That is where it all starts. Not at the top. At the bottom - the hands that are now rocking the cradles of tomorrow's leaders.

Know who sits on your local school boards, know them individually by name, their voting records, who endorses them, who owns them, what education policies do they support, and how does their continued presence on your local school board impact the quality of education the next generation ultimately will get.

If you want to ignore the top of the ticket, fine. Your one less vote probably will not matter. But failure to track your local school board does matter. And your one vote can well make a difference.

Stueeeeee

Could care less. Biden is unfit medically to be President. Politically he is a figurehead candidate that the degenerate coalition of rejects hope will convince enough whites to abandon Trump. It could be that his cognitive abilities have deteriorated too much and this scandal is a way to politely set him aside.

TTG,

True, I am conflating things when I accuse Biden. However my opinion on the balance of probabilities is that only one alpha male in the senate office would be prepared to molest the staff and that is Biden. It’s too dangerous for other males.

I also think that if what Reade is alleging is true, then it’s a sex crime.

BTW, a “Vanity Fair” piece on Biden coined the delightful euphemism: “Overly affectionate intrusions” to describe his behaviour. I have another name for it.

I suspect that, if this is being orchestrated, then more evidence from credible victims will appear in later news cycles.

Sirs;
The fascinating aspect of the Biden affair is that, if he is shuffled off to the old politico's home before the election in November, then the DNC has effectively disenfranchised the entire Democrat Party electorate. It is as if the primary elections never happened. The November candidate will be appointed by the old fashioned method; power brokers making deals in the infamous "smoke filled back room."
An appropriate song. Marlene Dietrich singing "The Boys in the Back Room" from "Destry Rides Again" 1939:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur1G2I2dC5w&list=PLPnZlEMYlMTXzBmMImoSq08D2dqWES99I&index=4
As is usual with 'Intellectual Property,' I could not find a video with audio version of the song from the original film.
Oh well.

Tyler

I look forward to Trump baiting Biden into saying the N word during the debates.

How can you not thrill to the battle of Trump vs. Poorer, trashier, stupider Trump?
