Regardless of your political affiliation, one would hope that any elected official here in the United States would have the moral fortitude to do what’s right, particularly in the case of something as serious as an allegation of sexual assault.
Unfortunately, over the course of the last few years, we have discovered that this just isn’t the case. The women who have bravely come forward to tell their tales have often been subject to criticism that falls on a purely partisan line, exposing just how little care our public servants have for anyone but themselves.
The latest example of this comes to us from Senator Elizabeth Warren, who has now joined a growing chorus of Democrats in dismissing the credible sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) reportedly said Monday that former Vice President Joe Biden’s denial of sexual assault allegations brought forth by former Senate staffer Tara Reade was “credible and convincing.”
“I saw the reports of what Ms. Reade said, I saw an interview with Vice President Biden. I appreciate that the vice president took a lot of questions, tough questions. And he answered them directly and respectfully,” Warren stated, according to CNN congressional reporter Manu Raju.
“The vice president’s answers were credible and convincing,” she added.
It should be noted, however, that Joe Biden’s presumptive primary victory was bolstered by Warren’s decision not to drop out of the race before a series of essential contests that could have allowed Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders a chance to snatch up the needed delegates to remain relevant. At the time, Warren was well out out of the running and supporters of Senator Sanders were quick to point out that Warren’s decision directly behooved Biden.
