Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden denied the rape of a former employee for 27 years ago on May 1.
“No, that’s not true. I am stating unequivocally that this never happened,” he said on MSNBC.
He advised journalists to look at the “growing number of inconsistencies” in the charges, which are constantly evolving.
Former Associate Joe Biden, Tyra Reed, accused the former vice president of rape. Apparently, he committed it 27 years ago as a senator. According to her, in 1993, in a hallway in the U.S. Senate building, Biden put his hand under her skirt and committed sexual acts.
Reid described the incident in April 2020. A year earlier, several women had reported inappropriate behavior by Biden. However, only one of them, Lucy Flores, reported the harassment. Others noted that their privacy had been compromised, but there was no sexual connotation.
Biden recorded a video message explaining it. In it, he admits that social norms have changed and now some of his actions may have caused people discomfort, but he is “just the way he is” and cannot act on his own like some cold and unemotional politicians.
