Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats think they have the election all wrapped up.
But there is some very bad news on the horizon about a massive sex scandal.
And Joe Biden heard one call to end his campaign that made everyone sit up and take notice.
Tara Reade’s allegations that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993 are credible and picking up steam.
The Media Research Center dug up a video from 1993 of Reade’s mother Jeanette Altimus calling in to Larry King’s primetime CNN program that aired on August 11 and describing how her daughter had a problem with a prominent senator.
“I’m wondering what a staffer would do besides go to the press in Washington? My daughter has just left there, after working for a prominent senator, and could not get through with her problems at all, and the only thing she could have done was go to the press, and she chose not to do it out of respect for him,” Altimus told King.
Through a spokeswoman, Biden previously denied Reade’s charges as false.
But this call to Larry King proved that a corroborating witness at the time could provide testimony to back up Reade’s charges.
This smoking gun led Hollywood actress and prominent “Me Too” movement activist Rose McGowan to call for Biden to end his campaign.
“Fellow citizens, use your power, use your social media voice. RISE. Tweet at JoeBiden to end his campaign effective immediately. Citizens, free yourselves. Overthrow a sick system run by false prophets. This is the moment. BECAUSE WE CAN,” McGowan wrote.
The fake news media reacted by trying to cover up Reade’s story by refusing to devote any airtime to the discovery of the bombshell Larry King video.
During five hours of Sunday show programming across ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC and CNN, not one show devoted one second of airtime to Reade’s allegation.
Prospective vice-presidential nominees Gretchen Whitmer and Stacey Abrams sat for multiple interviews during the Sunday shows and were not asked one question about Reade or the Larry King video from left-wing hosts.
And it’s not surprising the fake news media wants to censor this story.
The allegations are ugly, disturbing and disqualifying.
In Reason Magazine, journalist Robby Soave described Reade’s interview with Halper.
Soave wrote that:
“Reade says she worked for Biden in the early 1990s and asserts that she was unambiguously assaulted by him in 1993. According to Reade, he began kissing her without her permission, pushed her against a wall, reached under her skirt, and penetrated her with his fingers.
“He said ‘come on man, I heard you liked me,'” Reade recalled to Halper in the interview. “For me, it was like, everything shattered. I looked up to him, he was like my father’s age, he was this champion of women’s rights, in my eyes. I couldn’t believe it was happening. It was surreal.”
McGowan’s demand that Biden drop out of the race could represent a sliver of the Democrat Party base unwilling to turn out for Biden in November because of the cloud of this scandal.
And if Democrats have anything less than 100 percent unity behind Biden, they could lose the election.
