Left vs. Far-Left: Tara Reade allegations against Joe Biden divide Democrats

by Naomi Lim | Washington Examiner  |  Published on May 5, 2020

Denied sexual misconduct claims against Joe Biden have splintered the Democrats, just as the party had started bridging divides exposed by a long, competitive primary.

After hiding behind campaign spokespeople, Biden, the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, last week bowed to mounting pressure and publicly and directly refuted allegations made by Tara Reade, 56, against him.

But Biden’s vehement denial has failed to quiet discontent expressed by more liberal Democrats, particularly those once in Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s camp, who don’t want a candidate marred with accusations similar to those leveled at President Trump last cycle.

Peter Daou, a veteran of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 and 2016 White House bids before joining Sanders’s 2020 team, has repeatedly reminded Democrats the primary isn’t over, given Biden, 77, has yet to clinch the 1,991 delegates needed to become the party’s next standard-bearer outright.
